In the mid-1990’s Geoff travelled the world, and established himself in London. It was here that Geoff co-founded and ran a bespoke collaborative and web-technology software development business, growing over several years to have almost 25 personnel and with a variety of multinational customers in the Finance, Insurance, Engineering, Intellectual Property, Logistics and Retail sectors.

Geoff and his family returned to Australia in 2002, where he has been consulting to the Commercial and Government (Federal, State and Local) sectors. Almost without fail, these clients demonstrated to Geoff the benefits of (and need for) co-ordinated, consistent and aligned business enablement and delivery, and engaged executive support.

He has strived to educate and increase P3 maturity levels through skills transfer (consulting, mentoring and coaching) for both individuals and organisations, and has gained an excellent reputation within his commercial, government, education and other clients throughout Australia, UK and Europe. Geoff is a highly motivated executive who constantly drives for excellence in service delivery and has extensive pragmatic experience in the Portfolio, Program and Project (P3) and supporting PMO space.

Geoff holds a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science and Psychology) from the University of Queensland and a Masters in Technology Management from Griffith University. He also has a Cert IV in Training & Assessment, as well as Axelos and PeopleCert certification in the PRINCE2® and MSP® methods, together with direct experience in other P3-related methods and frameworks. Geoff is actively involved in his local community and church, and also serves as a member of a Private School’s Board.

Geoff attributes his success to ensuring the right information is communicated and used to evidence the right decisions in ever-changing environments. When supported by an understanding that change is an opportunity as well as a threat, a pragmatic and balanced approach will more likely succeed than not!
