I met Philip when he did work for us at the Russian Ballet School, now the School of Classical Russian Ballet, some six years ago. Philip was instrumental in doing away with spurious and unfounded accusations and helping us achieve an exceptional planning permission for the school. As I came to appreciate he did so in character with absolute dignity and kindness but resolutely and honestly. I came to admire Philip and valued him highly professionally and as an individual of great worth.
He was a one of a kind and I am very honoured to have worked with him.
