Phil Cooke

PHIL COOKE is an internationally known writer and speaker, longtime media consultant, producer, filmmaker and author.

He has produced media programming in more than 40 countries around the world. In the process, he has been shot at, survived two military coups, fallen out of a helicopter, and in Africa, been threatened with prison. During that time – through his company Cooke Pictures in Burbank, California – he’s helped some of the largest nonprofit organizations and leaders in the world use the media to tell their story in a changing, disrupted culture.

According to former CNN journalist Paula Zahn, Phil is rare – a working producer in Hollywood with a Ph.D. in Theology. Phil’s experience and expertise have made him a valuable guest on MSNBC, CNBC, CNN and Fox News, and his work has been profiled in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and the Wall Street Journal.

Phil has lectured at Yale University, UC Berkeley and UCLA, and has spent the past 30 years advising many of the largest organizations in the world as well as producing national advertising for the largest companies in the country.
