Phil Olley woke up on a pavement, surrounded by paramedics.

He had died. And been brought back to life.

He had the full white-tunnel experience.

And remembers it clearly. Everything.

What he saw. How he felt. What he heard. The sense of clarity in that final moment.


His latest book, “Reflections from the White Tunnel” is the connection between that experience and the work he does with people to improve their level of success in business, in their careers, and in every aspect of their life.

The book is designed for those who

  • want to change the way they are living and the results they are getting.
  • are aware there’s an untapped potential they want to uncover in their own lives.
  • are imaginative, creative, intelligent enough to realise that growth is essential, change is essential, and that it’s no good settling for a life way below that which you are truly capable of.

It’s also for those who are fascinated by the near-death experience… and who want to draw lessons and insights from such events, in the search to understand their significance and make sense of life.


Phil went into business 1990 after leaving his first love and the focus of life for many years, an exciting military career.

In 1999 Phil collapsed and for a brief time died, this forced him to re-evaluate his life. After some soul searching he decided to combine his wide experience of leadership, business and sales to create his performance coaching practice. He began working with a number of businesses and individuals to help them set goals, generate peak performance and grow their businesses.

Phil quickly became a sought-after inspirational international speaker.

Phil is no stranger to the media, has written articles and columns for magazines, is often quoted in the national press, has frequently appeared on BBC radio, and has contributed to prime-time TV programmes.

He has written two previous books on the subject of focus and success:

  • Counting Chickens
  • RESULT! Think Decisively, Take Action, Get Results

His latest book “Reflections from the White Tunnel” connects his Near Death Experience with a set of principles (The NEXUS Code) he has developed to help people from all walks of life, all businesses, professions and career paths, to enhance their performance, generate fresh results, and build true success, by living a “life on purpose”.

In addition to speaking at conferences and business events, and running Masterclasses and seminars, Phil works with select individual clients.

The growing reputation of his NEXUS Experience events means they are now attended by people from all walks of life who want to find enrichment, achievement, and fulfilment in their careers, businesses, and personal lives.
