Welcome!

Geoff Kirkwood A successful professional speaker having spoken in Russia, Canada, USA, Malaysia, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia. With a track record of having grown BNI in Australia from 30 chapters to 170 in 6 years, I am now embarking on other adventures in the business world. I am also the creator of such ideas as International Networking Week and International Networking Day (both Trademarked & owned by BNI). I created the very first worldwide celebration of these events in February 2007 and now being held in over 40 countries. You would be interested in me because I have always practised the philosophy of "giving before getting" and just love helping others achieve. I am the most positive person you will ever meet and that gives me an edge on all those people who see the glass as half empty.

Shelley Fishel

"I first met Geoff at a Boardroom back in January. He is a truly genuine helpful and supportive chap. We had a mini chat at another event and Geoff is fantastic at following up. Just recently I asked Geoff for some advice about a possible business connection in Australia - not only did I get great advice - Geoff also did a little research on my behalf and came up with a really great suggestion. Geoff is a man who practices what he preaches and I am honoured to be connected to him. Thank you Geoff. Shelley"

"Geoff really is "The Referral Master". Geoff's consulting process has helped me both personally and professionally. He is the master of word-of-mouth marketing and is the perfect example of the Givers Gain principle. If you are looking for a dedicated and knowlegable consultant to assist you in growing your business, I highly recommend making contact with Geoff Kirkwood. Thanks again Geoff and I look forward to our long term partnership. John Bellamy"

Georgina Lester

"Have now met Geoff in a boardroom yesterday - and what a great guy. I love his line - "challenge the impossible" and find his no nonsense focussed approach to achieving things positively inspiring. He brought immense value to the boardroom discussions coming out with sensible, practical and immensely valuable advice. Whilst he has - by all accounts - a very direct attitude to achieving what he sets out to achieve he seems to do so with a real sense of the people value inherent with those around him. Suffice to say that he slotted in to the boardroom environment fantastically well. As I was one of the ones in the hot seat - I can genuinely say that I found his input incredibly useful and insighful. So thank you for that Geoff - your contributions were greatly appreciated. It seems that Geoff also intends to take the boardroom concept to Australia. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that he will make a fantastic success of this venture. I shall look forward to hearing of his experiences. I am sure that he will bring back some very valuable feedback and thoughts on how the concept can be developed further to move with our changing times. As he understands the concept well, I suspect that he will make this work as successfully as he did in getting BNI so well established in the way that he did. I am sure that he needs no luck but have a bucket load from me anyway! I sincerely hope that Geoff stays in touch and continues contributing to this community for a long while yet. "

Dinah Liversidge

"Yesterday it was my great pleasure to meet Geoff (having only communicated on line or by skype) and it was a truly superb experience. Geoff attended my ecademy Boardroom and made insightful, practical, supportive and intelligent contributions. After the Boardroom we spent time discussing a business plan and his input, advice and ideas were invaluable. I am looking forward to working closely with Geoff - I know we will have fun and achieve a great deal. Dinah"

IOAN CLOTEA

"Dear Geoff, You are a person of the highest integrity and full of enthusiasm. Even we are so far away, but only at one click away, I'm sincerely glad to be connected. It is my great honor to be a friend of yours. You have a good profile which promises big things in the future. I rated you "Good" because liked you impressive profile, but if you're so kind please look at mine and put a testimonial for me also if I deserve one. The life is too beautiful and short to stay alone and not take the benefit of human connections. The world is too large and with a lot of opportunities for everybody, but unfortunately only few people can see the hidden "diamonds" from the sand. You have developed a great network very enthusiastically & proactively. Keep up the good work. Hopefully we will be able to assist one another in some way. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you. Looking into a log and both part benefit relation, and keep in touch. Best wishes for you and your family from Romania, Your true friend, Ioan Clotea "
