Each week I invite one of my speakers to talk about their life, work, passions and leisure so that you can get to know the person who is the speaker behind the mic.
In this episode I struggle to contain my laughter, you might hear me squeaking in the background, and I also have to warn you that my guest drops a couple of naughty words. But it’s all done in the best possible taste.
My guest this week is a leading authority on sales, leadership, customers and change and has been voted Business Communicator of the Year by the Speechwriters’ Guild. He is a regular contributor and presenter on TV and Radio and was the star of BBC television’s hit business show ‘All over the Shop’. He is regularly seen as a business correspondent and presenter for BBC television’s Inside Out programme. He is the author of many highly successful business books and he has taken a break from guruing around the world he is business guru, Geoff Burch.
Geoff Burch is an international business expert, best-selling author, master storyteller and TV presenter. Geoff is the leading authority on sales, customers, leadership and change. His credentials are impressive, working extensively with the world’s major blue chip and FTSE 100 companies to motivate and inspire their people – his humorous and entertaining presentations enabling him to deliver powerful business principles, key messages and new ideas which are of use to everyone and can benefit all organisations of any size.

Geoff also has a particular passion for small enterprise. A third-generation entrepreneur – his grandmother and mother ran a number of successful enterprises – Geoff loves to inspire small businesses using the skills he’s acquired from working with big business. These experiences were distilled into two of his best-selling books ‘Go It Alone’ and ‘Self-Made Me’ which are aimed at all those planning to succeed in their own businesses. Funny and mischievous, the books, like their author, pull no punches.
