Philip works with entrepreneurs and business leaders all over the world. When people are seeking clarity about their future or want to move through roadblocks, seen and unseen, they call Philip. As a speaker he has inspired and challenged the Canadian Olympic Team and The Pentagon to name a few.
He helps people get clear on who they are and where they need to go. He helps them transition in their personal and professional lives so people feel aligned in all areas of life. Philip believes who and what we do ‘off the ice’ has a huge impact on our results ‘on the ice’.
What separates Philip from a lot of coaches, speakers and gurus is originality. He brings new conversations to the table and spends an obscene amount of time thinking and challenging the status quo, instead of simply repackaging business & life hacking strategies. Philip McKernan is a philosopher, a modern day philosopher of the human experience.
With a knack of getting into all sorts of scenarios – he’s caddied in golf for the President of Ireland, been chased and nearly killed by a bull elephant in Nigeria and made wine in Australia. He has traveled to 80 countries around the globe and has worked with orphans in Sri Lanka, Peru, India and Guatemala, written 4 books despite being dyslexic and his first documentary film will be released in late 2016. The film explores how the gift of giving makes up feel more worthy and alive. It also explores the science behind the impact of giving on our emotional well being, our mental health, our physiology and our business’s.
Philip believes the path to a happy and fulfilling life is found through the meaning we derive in life through the WORK we do, our relationship to OTHERS and the most important relationship of all, the one with ones SELF.

[Interview] The Most Prosperous Year of Your Life
I found your talk riveting. You have a real facility for distilling great wisdom into a few simple words that cut right through the fog. And you are funny to boot! Not a common combination.

Philip is an extraordinarily gifted life-coach who guides people in their instinctive quest to be more authentically “connected” to themselves, others, and their life purpose. He enables people to get out of their heads, and into their hearts, where real knowing and change occurs. Most importantly, he leads by example and walks his talk. Philip’s exceedingly grounded, humble and deeply personal approach are possibly the most powerful aspects of his delivery, and fosters an extremely safe and comfortable atmosphere to do this kind of work.
6 years ago I placed a bet on my soul. I hired a man that picks me up when I fall that kicks me when I need it. That hugs me when I feel I can’t go on. I take full responsibility for fighting for who Ian Szabo is or can be. But he believed in me before I could ever see the light. I am grateful for Philip McKernan. My best friends are because of his work. When doctors said we would not be likely to have a child we made it happen. 5 years ago I made $15 an hr, today I make a bit more. But I am changing live’s EVERYWHERE. Stop trying to do it yourselves, if there’s a small spark in your heart that tells you that you deserve better, then work with Mckernan.
