Communication and Change Consultant

Hi! I'm Phil Jones, and I'm a change management consultant from Houston, Texas. I've been working in communication, change, and management consulting for 10 years. I've been practicing writing and speech for much, much longer. I'm passionate about improvement and learning, and that curiosity has made me want to share what I've found with others.

Creating and consuming training is a big part of my career, so I thought I would make it a part of my personal projects, too.
