"Philip, you awesome, fabulous man. You say it how it is and speak truths that I thoroughly enjoyed listening to. I particularly enjoyed our post panel conversations. I felt very honoured to spend that time with you."
"Very impressive. Philip's insight and responses were outstanding."
"Thank you for the leadership and challenge you bring to the creative discourse. I was left with a lot to think about, particularly about your insights into how some artists are funded and some are told to get a real job. Who decides who is valid is such an important question in so many facets of power and relationship. I also valued being able to discuss the media and the dwindling examples of robust analysis and debate."
"Thank you for spending your valuable time with us, Philip - the impact of who chooses to fund our creative initiatives in NZ is having an effect on our identity."
"Your thoughtful exposition of the paradoxes of our world really resonated with me; much of what you said we can do something about; we could all use more Te Reo in our day to day engagements with each other. Thanks for your time and energy, Philip."
