“I have known Philip Bass for over 10 years, initially in his role as National Account Manager at Pure and most recently at Orbitsound. During this period of time I have always found Philip to be very professional in all his dealings with me as a Buyer at John Lewis. He was instrumental in helping us with the successful launch of key products such as the first Pure digital radios and the Orbitsound soundbars.”

“I have worked with Philip on a number of projects and business transactions over the last 5 years and found him to be tenacious, honest, straight forward and a pleasure to work with. He always seems to go that extra bit for his clients and customers alike”

Mark Kiteley, Business Advisor, Non Exec Director, Chairman. Business Development and Strategy in the SME sector

“We hired Philip over a period of eight months to help us launch our new brand of portable Bluetooth speakers and android based smart hi-fi speakers. Philip contributed vastly to preparing us for the launch of brand and sharing fresh ideas and sound advice with us. He was instrumental in structuring, re-designing and creating the copy for both our initial and successful Kickstarter campaign and our website. Philip was able to identify the areas which we needed to improve and prepare for a brand launch and provided not just recommendations like many consultants do, but actually delivered most of the work himself. Philip set up a number of meetings with potential distribution partners, retailers and PR agencies but when we decided to sell direct to consumer, he delivered a high quality fully comprehensive business plan and budget for what was to be our first year of trading. We would have no hesitation in re-hiring Philip as and when we are ready to enter the market or indeed recommend him to anyone else looking for an all-round personable professional with a wide range of skills and abilities”

“I will hereby like to recommend Philip Bass as a consultant and as a sales person. Philip has done a good job for Tangent and I am sure that he will also do a very good job in the future for any company that he works for. He never gives up and will always understand the product so that he ultimately sells to a very high level for sure”

He was very valuable across many business areas from initial product specification, pricing, logo/branding, packaging design, website structure and content right through to successfully signing up and then managing a distribution partner in the UK.He also set up and managed out PR agency and call centre and handled day to day activities required to manage the business in the UK.He managed all of this with very little support.Philip successfully had the products ranged within several retailers including Amazon, Freemans and a number of Euronics dealers”

“I have worked with Phil for seven years at Imagination Technologies.I think Phil is a highly professional businessman with a strong confident character. He is very dedicated, hardworking and tenacious and often won’t give up until his goals are reached or completed.I believe one of his strongest areas of expertise is in opening doors and creating new business relationships. Phil has no fear in terms of ‘knocking on doors, which makes him very strong in business development. Equally I believe he is very capable of managing large customer accounts on an ongoing basis. He’s an intelligent, positive man who combines that with a strong commercial head and complete company commitment and loyalty. Phil has also been a very good support and friend. He’s very caring and has a great sense of humour.”
