About Geoffrey X Lane

The spoken word has the POWER to transform, influence, inspire and persuade. Nothing happens until communication begins.

Do You Have Trouble Presenting to A Crowd?

Public speaking is not a gift to be enjoyed by the privileged few.

It all started by saying “yes” to a speaking engagement, which became a career spanning more than 30 years. I learned an invaluable skill – public speaking – which has taken me to the ends of the earth and enriched my life beyond my wildest dreams.  Along the way, I have worked with thousands of leaders from all walks of life and business, helping them to get better equipped to communicate in their life and work.

I learned what it means for a speaker to really connect with an audience; by not hiding behind a message or “talking points” but by really getting authentic with the audience and sharing your true self with them.

I learned the secret principles and practices of powerful public speaking and want to share these secrets with you – to help you become a powerful speaker and create more success as a leader.

Geoffrey’s History & Experience

And How It Will Benefit You.

Geoffrey’s first speaking gig was in 1973 – it was the start of a journey that led to becoming a full-time professional speaker over the next 17 years. From a slow start of speaking to just 30 people, and to an audience of 2000+ people and travelling across North America (USA & Canada) on a regular basis to lead Salon Success for REDKEN and two speaking tours of Australia.

Geoffrey was also a partner in a very successful hair and cosmetics business called “Moods” with two outlets and 20 staff in Vancouver, overtime he became in more demand as a speaker.

In 1984 Geoffrey was introduced to NLP by Tony Robbins while learning to lead Tony’s Fire Walking weekend. This was a powerful time of change and personal growth. Inspired by Virginia Satir, Richard Bandler and John Grinder he became involved in the personal growth field by taking many workshops.  Geoffrey took and then led the Pursuit of Excellence a 45 hour 5 day workshop on leadership and personal excellence. He became the lead facilitator in Canada for 10 years.

 In 1994, after being a “Road Warrior” since 1975 Geoffrey was asked to create a speaking and presentation skills workshop by a professional colleague, which gave him the opportunity to share what he had learnt and help others learn the powerful strategies he had developed. A year later he was asked to bring the workshop to Executive Education at the University of British Columbia and Presentation Power was the new name given to the workshop (and second book), which Geoffrey led for 8 years at the prestigious Sauder School of Business UBC.

In 2002 Geoffrey was asked to be the presentation and speech coach to the Canadian Winter Olympic Bid team, to prepare for the crucial visit of the Olympic Evaluation Team.  In Prague on July 2 2003 Geoffrey coached the Canadian Winter Olympic team and helped win the right to host the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and Whistler BC. During this intense period Geoffrey was asked why he did this “So that my grand daughter gets to see a Winter Olympics”.

Why I Do What I Do

It’s My Passion

At 74 I look back at my life and its challenges and gifts and I am blessed. After surviving open heart surgery and a brush with cancer I want to give back and share what I have learnt. Its very selfish desire to leave the world a better place for my family and yours.

Giving Back & Good Will

Creating spaces of strength and integrity.

Imagine a piece of fabric covering the world that represents good will. In some place’s it is evident that goodwill exists. That spontaneous help during hard times and simple acts of kindness. In some parts of the world it is evident that goodwill is becoming torn apart, in Africa, Russia, Middle East, and often in our own backyard by politicians and racists.

For me, strengthening the fabric of goodwill is expressed in the simple act of leading workshops that strengthen the individual. As the individual represents a single strand in the overall fabric; when a person is strengthened to express more of whom they are, we all are strengthened. It is important for freedom expression to continue, when it is suppressed, goodwill and understanding tends to disappear. 

I believe we need ‘stand up’ for what we believe in, that we create work places that respect the integrity and the values of others. It is the suppression of ideas, values, beliefs and individuals that directly decreases goodwill.
