Geoff has a unique blend of communication experience; having worked within corporate, government and agency environments in roles spanning regulated, creative and commercial fields.



For more than 30 years Geoff has worked extensively as a facilitator, trainer, writer, editor and corporate communications executive. He has written, developed and implemented communication plans that have included:


– the introduction of the A380 to the Qantas fleet


– part of the Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) at SBS Television


– a strategic change management initiative for a global IT business


He’s been responsible for leading, developing and implementing key corporate communication campaigns: driving global employee communication strategies, complex change initiatives and project communications. 


Geoff has an Honours Degree in English Literature from The University of Queensland and is currently completing a Master of Creative Writing at The University of Sydney. Additionally, a Bachelor of Design Studies (Architecture) has given Geoff a unique perspective on storytelling, pitching and ideas. 


Geoff has a teaching degree, contributing to foreign language curriculum development for Education Queensland and understanding how language affects thinking. Founding GkJE in 2011 – a small creative team for bespoke clients – Geoff led communication design for the team and operated as the client project lead. This included working as an independent curator of public photography and art that branched into placemaking in urban spaces.


Always on the diversity curve, Geoff is a strong believer in multiple perspectives creating a better whole, and has a clear focus on narrative storytelling to engage people in the bigger picture.
