Phil Ore is an entrepreneur who founded three successful Melbourne companies – Marketing Entourage, Entrepreneurs&Co. and Ore Consulting. He is also the Pitch Mentor for Startup Victoria, Global Ambassador for Inspiring Rare Birds and Ambassador for the Digital Innovation Festival. Phil is a firm believer in the importance of business owners creating a clear strategy to define their purpose, marketing position and target customers before trying to sell their service or product. Up to 95% of startups fail within the first 18 months (Ref: Forbes) and Phil’s goal is to improve this by helping turn a great idea into a viable business. From his own experience the biggest challenge when starting a business is not what you know but also who you know. Many businesses fail because they don’t validate their idea and start spending their money on building apps before they even know if anyone will buy it – too much assumption and not enough feasibility and viability.
We offer two primary services:
Pitch Mentoring – helping your startup develop a 5 minute pitch that can be used to find investment, partners, channels to market, new team members or customers.
Business advisory – helping your startup create clarity to your messaging and structure to your strategy.
Phil strives to guide businesses on their path towards growth and success. He prides himself on being an ideas man; one who can build a strategy that is measurable and achievable. He loves the opportunity to solve the challenges experienced by his clients and gets a real buzz from helping them succeed. Businesses need to differentiate themselves by developing their own unique value proposition. In the minds of their target audience they need to be seen as the only ones that do what they do.
For over twenty years Phil worked in global customer experience, marketing and brand roles for Nokia, Nokia Siemens Networks and Elmwood with customers in more than 100 countries, before deciding it was time to start his own business. The diversity of his clients over the last 25 years has helped develop his knowledge of how to build sustainable and growing businesses, both large and small. As well as being a business owner, he is also a Director in a tech build company which has helped develop his knowledge of the ‘must do’ actions as well as the pitfalls of building apps, websites and digital platforms.
Phil is passionate about working with purpose driven people who are focused on impact and ensuring the world is a better place for both current and future generations. He is a strong supporter of male and female entrepreneurs who want to harness their experience to create amazing startups and live their life to the max.
Phil was able to unwrap the complexity of a pitch and communicate it in a way that gave me confidence. The tools and models that Phil provided helped me to see where my concept was currently, and where it could be into the future.
Their advice has been invaluable, not only in Pitch Deck advice but to their approach on how Founders can better pitch to investors and all the different stakeholders. With strategic advice, marketing, CX, brand value, and go-to-market knowledge the team are true Startup Advisors.
Phil Ore has been amazing in helping capture and progress my ideas into fantastic work. He is super responsive to the smallest of problems or tasks and always makes you feel like you are not just another number. Phil has exceptional experience and knowledge in just about most things he does. Phil is great at helping continue the spark of an idea and guiding entrepreneurs turn ideas into reality.
Ore Consulting have been a pleasure to work with. Their brand and marketing knowledge has made the transformation an exciting and enjoyable experience. They spoke using a marketing 'language' that was easy to understand and have created a brand that I am truly proud of. I would recommend the team to any business who wants to improve their strategic marketing capability.
The team at Ore Consulting have been a vital part in the development of our business. Since Ore Consulting became an integrated part of the ISTA team we have seen a dramatic increase in customers and revenue. Phil has helped us understand how brand and effective marketing can differentiate us in the market. I have been delighted with the service they offer and can highly recommend them to any business wishing to grow.
Phil and the team were instrumental in building my public profile and helping me engage with a diverse range of young Australians. Phil developed a marketing and PR strategy that focused on key national media outlets to maximise outreach. I always felt in safe hands with Phil and would highly recommend Ore Consulting.
Ore Consulting helped us assess our current business strategy, connect with potential investors and build a strategic ‘go to market’ plan. Phil’s knowledge and network is second to none and has had a major impact on the direction of Community Bond and how to ensure success.
It was great to meet with Phil to discuss various entrepreneurial strategies and the best approach for a digital initiative called 60 Sisters. His passion and networks for all things entrepreneurial is inspiring, supportive and insightful.
Phil is without doubt, one of the most passionate and engaging MC's I've had the pleasure of working with. He does his research, stays on schedule, makes every speaker feel special and kept the room vibrant, engaged and full of energy, from start to the end of our two day conference (www.rarebirdscon.com). With 49 speakers and 27 sessions over two days, Phil kept pace and did it with a warm sense of humour. Phil is an awesome purpose fueled human who immersed fully into the role and we cant wait to have him back next year.
