"I have had the pleasure of working with Geoff both as a coach and to have him coach us at Iterate. Seldom have I met so much ability in one man. His skills as a good listener is the first thing that hits you as extraordinary. Yet you will notice that his ability to see good, creative solutions on difficult challenges is even better.
He delivers the message in a straight forward and professional manner, and he is blessed with the courage to challenge the views of people in all levels of an organization. It is obvious that Geoff is truly committed and inspired by his work as an agile coach. I already look forward to the next opportunity to work with him. Keep up the good work!"
