I have known Geoff Whytcross for the last 15 years as a client, candidate and friend. Geoff first started working with me when I was Managing Director of Best & Less and undertook some recruitment work. I subsequently have held CEO/Managing Director roles with Canterbury International, General Pants and Country Road and have used Geoff as both a recruitment client and a sounding board in that time.
Geoff has a strong background in the human resources industry and not only does he just meet with people on a "commercial" basis, Geoff is willing to meet with people at all ages, whether that be someone who has just graduated from university and is looking for some career advice through to CEO's who are looking to transition into the role of Non Executive Director.
Geoff has good listening skills, expresses empathy for the people he meets with but is only not afraid to challenge candidates or clients if he believes that this will get better results. One f Geoff's strengths is his ability to understand the culture of companies that he does work for which allows for a better fit.
I believe that Geoff will be an effective Executive and Career Coach and would have no hesitation in recommending Geoff as a Coach who will work with a client to assist them achieve their goals.
