About me

Hello, I'm Geoff, and I have been very privileged to spend a long business career working in and with some of the biggest companies and household names, and running businesses and living in countries across three continents.

Starting in marketing, I worked my way up through Managing Director roles, ultimately to Regional Vice President. Subsequently, I undertook executive coach training and became a Professional Certified Coach.

Business, Executive & Personal Development Coaching.

I have many years of experience successfully working with Executives and Professionals seeking personal development, enhanced skill sets, or needing to overcome self confidence, self esteem, or stress issues.

We work together to transform professional and personal lives and achieve fulfilment.

About you...Executives & Professionals, ranging from Junior to C-suite:

  • Company executives / professionals wanting to address career development, leadership skills; improve personal performance, find more clarity / purpose in their career and personal life.
  • Small/medium business owners (SMEs) looking to improve business strategy, organisation, leadership and people management competencies.
  • Individuals with personal issues, perhaps lacking self esteem or confidence, or seeking direction and purpose in their life or career.

What we achieve together...we explore your challenges and ambitions; we deconstruct the barriers to higher performance, reducing anxiety and stress through mindfulness, identifying and neutralising behaviours and mental models that sap confidence and potential. We develop your business emotional intelligence to take your current skills to a higher level.

My coaching and mentoring approach is action and result oriented, giving you practical tools and techniques to make a radical difference in your life.

I draw on my business background having worked with hundreds of colleagues across multiple cultures, I combine this expertise with my professional coach training to bring a powerful mix of experience in support of my clients.

Executives and Professionals face even more challenges in today's turbulent business environment.  Working with me as your coach is a proven way to help you overcome obstacles, realise objectives and improve your performance.

So whether you have a personal or professional issue to be coached, I can help.

I coach face-to-face, or via Zoom or Skype. Flexible session times, both weekends and out of office hours.  Contact me today for a free Discovery Session.

Buchi Onwugbonu, Vice President, Footsie 100, Global Telecoms organisation.

"Geoffrey is an excellent coach. I have benefitted immensely from his coaching sessions and have seen improved results in my personal and professional life. He is highly recommended!" Steve Boyo. CEO

"Geoffrey is a calm and assured coach with a sensitive and challenging approach. If you are serious about exploring change and want to gain real insight into what may be blocking your progress, Geoffrey has a wonderful way of helping you clear a path to a space where you can do some clear thinking. I gained a great deal in the coaching I received." Louis Collins

"Perceptive and mindful is the phrase that comes to mind when I think of Geoff. I worked with Geoff for just over a year, during which time his Business Coaching skills enabled us to vision and apply significant improvements in our operations. Above all, I was impressed with how Geoff offers an amazing set of skills for enabling the director to clarify their vision. And of course, his enthusiasm and patience to research his clients. Any organisation looking to change their business for the better needs Geoff. Period." Derrin Morton, Director, Data Warehouse Solutions Ltd

“After many years where I was unable to work for personal reasons, it was a daunting prospect to try to pick up the thread of my career again. I work in an industry, Television, where a few weeks is a long time to be out of the game, never mind a few years. I had tried other life coaches before I met Geoff but felt immediately that he was right for me. He correctly understood the stages that I needed to work through and provided exactly the right balance of empathy, understanding and practical guidance that I needed. I would have no hesitation in recommending Geoff and consider my decision to seek help with him as one of the best investments I’ve made.” James Callinan.

"I met Geoff as I was going through a transition in my career and life. In the sometimes "jungle" world of coaches, Geoff brings a voice of wisdom and clarity and shows you the light you need to follow. He could relate immediately to my experience, office politics and difficulties I was going through. He was able to identify key drivers and impediments in my professional path and led me to better understand myself as a professional and a human being. He helped me clarify my objectives and gave me confidence in the next step.  I recommend Geoff without limitation. He won't sell you anything he cannot deliver."  Hervé Mabille
