    Success The Choice is Yours This book is a really easy, no nonsense read. It is a must read for people young and old. Using real life stories and experiences makes the book "real" and helps the reader to relate to the author with their own experiences, thus helping them to see how they can implement the suggestions and activities.

    I personally know Geoffrey and his passion for inspiring people to reach their goals, he inspired me to reach mine!... in Geoffrey's mode, there should be nothing in life that is unattainable given the right attitude, mindset and approach to life! This shows in his personality, and after reading his book, it can be shown to the masses!!.. Good luck with your book Geoffrey!

  • Hi Geoffrey, I've always "preached" that symbolism - even included it in a PowerPoint that I used to lecture with. But reading your article just reminded me that I really haven't been doing it myself. I remember the image better than the meaning. I often wished it was as natural with me as it was for a dear friend (who's since gone) who used to always make me feel a million bucks. Hence your message really touched me. Thank you. Keep up the great work. More practice for me.
    Kind regards

  • Success The Choice is Yours (Paperback)
    I've known of Geoffrey's work for a while now so I was delighted to hear the news that Geoffrey had put all of his thoughts and years of business experience down in writing. The book is very easy to read and flows very well. There's an incredible amount to take away - I've filled the margins with notes! Geoffrey's story is quite a unique one which makes this book standout from the countless other business books that are available. Highly recommended!

    Success the choice is yours
    I have read many books about how you can become successful within your own niche, but this book is different. As Geoffrey has written this as if he is talking to you on a one to one. It takes you back and assists you to analyse what you need to do to move forward by conquering issues that may hold you back. The benefits that this book gives you that Geoffrey has also ran his own very successful businesses and he demonstrates how he has had high's and low's. This provides you to become more determined within what you want to achieve and even with those obstacles in your path.
    Thank you Geoffrey for the inspiration.

  • Group Accountant Wincham International When I first met Geoffrey I had the customary cynical accountant’s view of consultants. However my views were unfounded and over the months we worked together I found Geoffrey to be very supportive and we were able to speak with the same voice on many of the issues faced by Wincham. Many of the initiatives put in place are still thriving. Thanks Geoffrey.

He was kind enough to speak for the Annual General Meeting of the  CEPN Business Forum and the reviews from members were excellent.

He is truly inspirational. Keep up the good work Geoffrey.

  • Dear Geoffrey Thank you so much for a FAB talk last night. You were speaking from the heart, and it all made sense. Lots of positive comments were said to us on the night, and hopefully some of them will make on the website. I had a look at you new website. Great, but you need the picture at the top!!!!!!! That picture just works, because personally I feel the top is "too dark" at the moment. You are such a lively/positive person, so the black top is not "really you". I'm just being honest and straight! Otherwise, keep well and look after yourself. Ida xx

  • Dear Geoffrey Just a quick note of thanks. I seem to have written a thoroughly researched and systematically compiled business plan. At over forty pages, it was an awful lot more work than the back-of-the-envelope version I had at the start of your Business Start-up course, back in April.  However I sense it's going to be much more useful than the original; and the processes I have learned from you, will be handy in the future too. As I look forward to seeing how this venture of mine turns out, it’s good to know I have a good foundation of work to send me on my way, and keep me on course too. Thanks again for all your help.

I know that despite (or even because of) your health issues you are even more determined to pass on your knowledge and experience.  Even though we have only met a couple of times (BRE and I did come over to see you and admire the magnificent views of the Mersey that you command) I know you are a person of great integrity and in life it is always a privilege and honour to have been invited to share time with someone like yourself. Geoffrey, I wish you continued success and remember that your half full glass is always a reminder of just how much more potential you have!

  • Hi Geoffrey, I am very sorry to hear about your medical problems but I understand why you are having to slow down and stop working as hard.  I will miss you, but I suspect that I will still see you around because I cannot see you sitting back in an armchair resting on your laurels for long. I certainly hope you will be around because I have really enjoyed working with you, and time spent with you is not only instructive, but also fun. I will keep in touch Best wishes to you and your family
