Phil Dye is a Sydney based author, journalist, educator and musician. He is the author of The father lode published by Allen and Unwin (1998 and 2011), 101 ways to improve your business writing (2006 and 2009) and The Australian sport media management and public relations manual (2013). He is also the writer of the global sports-music hit ‘Sachin Tendulkar – God of Cricket’ which was broadcast on nearly every radio station in India and covered in virtually every Indian newspaper on the retirement of The Little Master. (see HERE OR HERE)
Phil has written for the Sydney Morning Herald, the Melbourne Age and The Australian as well as Online Opinion pages across the country. As a social commentator, he has been interviewed over 100 times for radio and TV on topics ranging from education to gender to sport. More often than not his writing contains strong opinion; an opinion that has a tendency to polarise as well as entertain.
Social justice is a common theme in his writing, and it’s this idea of justice which he believes is sadly lacking in Australian society today. “As a comparatively rich nation, we’ve become flabby and complacent. Australians have become silent about too many things. We’ve forgotten how to stand up and be counted and that’s a great shame.”
