Steve Phillip – Founder and Director
For more than 11 years, Steve ran a successful consultancy practice, providing coaching, training and as a keynote speaker in the world of social media and sales & marketing. However, on December 4th 2019, he received a call which would change his life forever – his son Jordan had taken his own life.
Faced with the choice of either sitting on a sofa with a bottle or creating something to prevent other families having to experience the trauma of losing a loved to suicide, Steve chose the latter.
He soon established The Jordan Legacy CIC, to provide support to those struggling with their mental health or considering suicide, whilst simultaneously accepting the position as Head of Mission, at Champion Health UK Ltd, a rapidly growing tech company in the world of workplace employee wellbeing strategies.
Steve’s lived experience of suicide, combined with an audience of more than 20,000 followers on LinkedIn, means his story continues to be shared with a global audience of millions.
His articles, blogs & posts on the topics of suicide and mental health have been read by audiences around the globe and I he’s been invited to speak about suicide prevention to the Government’s Cabinet Office, Department for Health & Social Care, the Home Office, MOD and other departments at Westminster, as well corporate businesses and the military.
Steve is responsible. alongside the Legacy’s Paul Vittles, for developing the organisation’s Zero Suicide Community strategy, as well as presenting workshops and talks on the topic of mental wellbeing and suicide prevention.
