My greatest joy has always been when I am facilitating and coaching others, it is my purpose. I am a humble student with many teachers, Geoffrey.
I have coached CEO’s, leaders, architects, engineers, public speakers and entrepreneurs: Here is a small collection of success stories from the different areas of my background as an executive coach and presentation coach.
In the 25 years coaching experience I led teams for the 2010 Winter Olympic Bid, CN Financial Division, Shaw, Rocky Mountaineer, Sandwell Engineering, FKP Architects, Rogers, Telus and Stantec.
As a facilitator I have worked with and provided training for: The Pursuit of Excellence Canada, BC Housing, London Drugs, Leadership Vancouver, Tourism Vancouver and Victoria. I also wrote and taught Presentation Power at the Sauder School of Business, Executive Education, at the University of British Columbia.

Your program taught me how to harness my own strength to achieve my goals. Geoffrey is a true leader that doesn’t do it for you, but guides you to learn it for yourself.” “The program walks you down the path of your life so you can learn how you got to where you are, and helps guide you forward to where you want to go. Geoffrey offers guidance and support as you journey towards your goals and dreams.”
Patrick Courval. Portfolio Manager – Asia/Pacific Equities – CN Investment Division
I had the privilege of having Geoffrey as my leadership coach. I believe that his advice helped me improve my leadership by discovering new management skills. I encourage anyone wanting to improve their leadership and management skills to seek out his coaching.
Karen McGregor. Professional Speaker
Presentation Power; It helped me establish a level of confidence I have never experienced before. It was a sudden, dramatic shift in the energy and projection of my voice, my eye contact, and my posture. This change has been a lasting one! It is truly the best investment you will ever make.
Clint Mahlman. President – London Drugs Limited Canada
Geoffrey was able to put forth his message in ways that made our people completely at ease, while at the same time leaving the participants with a greater sense of team. ‘Inspiring’ ‘Incredible depth of knowledge’ ‘made me feel completely at ease while learning’ … are just some of the comments London Drugs Limited have heard.”
Katherine Bright. Assistant Dean & Executive Director – University of British Columbia
“Geoffrey worked with University of British Columbia in Executive Education at the Sauder School of Business. He was an instructor in 2 different programs: Presentation Power™ and Sales Talk. Geoffrey’s seminars were consistently highly rated and thoroughly enjoyed. Geoffrey’s programs were consistently sold out.”
Jonni Johnston. CPSM – CEO & Chief Inspirer, Rockit Strategy
The wonderful thing about Geoffrey is he doesn’t just impact your professional life he affects all facets.
He is your best professor, your greatest mentor, 3 people you’d invite to your dinner party, Yoda, Charlie Chaplin and the Dali Lama – all wrapped in one!
Michael Oliver. President & Founder – Natural Selling
As it turned out ” Showing Up” has been the most wonderful gift to discover. My feedback forms also confirm this. The word authenticity comes up repeatedly. As you pointed out, strategies and techniques have little meaning without the real person in front of the message! Thanks for helping me get in touch with myself and for passing on the gift on!
Amy Moen. CSMP – Principal HOK Architects
“Geoffrey is a Sherpa — he provides a process and structure for a journey of self-discovery. His passion for helping others is palpable, inspirational and energizing. Geoffrey’s quiet presence, calm strength and deep wisdom provide a safe backdrop to explore grow and lead.
John Furlong. President – Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Bid
“Geoffrey Lane was an enormous asset to the 2010 Winter Olympic Bid in the critical presentation in Prague. He brought a real sense of passion to our team, he helped our team increase our confidence level, and he helped us find the words that allowed us to deliver the message in a more powerful and passionate way.”
