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, 3people you’d invite to your dinner party, Yoda, Charlie Chaplin and the Dalia Lama – all wrapped in one!
Dan Haygeman MA Professional Coach The Williams Group
I’d like to take a moment to thank you for facilitating experience that has had a huge and growing impact upon my life. You took personal risks to confront a strategy I had been using for twenty years, (to give the appearance of forward movement without commitment). The process you facilitate is an excellent one. The way you facilitate is magical.
Jason Parker Founder & Facilitator - Centrix
I took your Power Presentation workshop one of the greatest learning’s I was able to take away from your course was to “show up”. This idea of “showing up” gave me the freedom to be ME while presenting. The relaxed state I now have because of your advice is second to none. Thank you so very much for your knowledge, coaching, and time.
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.”
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.
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!

Geoffrey has a strong presence he is totally himself and high level of integrity with the material he presents. A dry British sense of humour is inviting and charming. He establishes trust and rapport, builds a strong relationship with his audience. His use of metaphors and word paint a vision or picture in such a way that, he captivates and inspires.
Karen McGregor Professional Speaker
Presentation Power; It helped me establish a level of confidence I have never experienced before. It was 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.
