Phil Boyle - Public Speaker

Forthright, pragmatic and disarmingly understated – all words that can be used to describe Phil Boyle.

From a working-class Portsmouth district to President-elect of the Royal Aeronautical Society, RAF Officer, The Ramsey Hall Group managing director, Chartered Engineer and MSc in Management Sciences, Phil Boyle has proven his determination as an individual.

Growing up in a working-class district in Portsmouth, Phil was the first person on his street ever to go to University and went on to be accepted into the highly competitive pilot training programme at RAF Cranwell in 1970. During his time in the Service, he completed a tour of Germany as a Weapons Officer, at the height of the Cold War, as well as one tour as a pilot on the RAF's Hercules aircraft and two tours on the Nimrod during which he saw service in the Falklands War in the early 1980s.

Today, he heads up the Aerospace & Defence practice and plays a key role in the driving excellence across the Industrial and Not-for-Profit sectors. But it is his personal experience of business and his overriding philosophy about managing people, that truly captures the imagination and makes him such an enthralling speaker.

The longest serving Trustee and now President-elect of the Royal Aeronautical Society, he is also the long-term Chairman of the Society's Solent branch. He is due to take over the Presidency of the Society in 2012.

Phil has a first degree in engineering science from The University of Durham as well as an MSc in Management Sciences from Southampton University. A Chartered Engineer, he is also a graduate of the RAF's MSc level GD Aerosystems Course for which he won the Aries Trophy.
