PhilipPhilip DerMargosian is a coach for CEO’s and senior leaders throughout the U.S. and Europe. He has created a powerful coaching approach that draws from his corporate and organizational experience of working for over 15 years in Fortune 500 companies in New York City, including more than a decade with the Avon Corporation in the areas of Human Resources, Communications, Consumer Information and Conflict Resolution.

The process is a synthesis of techniques drawn from the performing arts arena combined with traditional communication tools that focus the individual to consciously access their full range of knowledge, skills and talent.

Philip first began his work in leadership development and coaching in 1995, when he led a team at Avon Lifedesigns, a division of Avon Products, to create a workshop product that developed women in leadership roles to become more motivated, committed and creative in their professional lives. Currently, he uses both his organizational experience and artistic background to combine theoretical and systemic knowledge with a creative emphasis.
