Geoff is the co-founder of the Watershed Inc. He trained as a clinical psychologist and has helped organizations, leaders and teams realize their fullest potential for more than 30 years.
Geoff has a deep personal and academic passion for the place of risk in our lives: He has been a committed mountain climber since his teenage years and is the author of award-winning books on risk and adventure. Both those experiences inform the work he does with leaders, helping them understand their own appetites for risk and their ability to lead others to take constructive risks.
Geoff has been widely recognized for his contributions to the adventure world — serving 13 years as the Editor of the Canadian Alpine Journal, receiving the President’s Medal from the Alpine Club of Canada and the Bill March Summit of Excellence Award for lifetime contribution to Canada’s mountain culture. Geoff also sat on the Board of Directors of Travel Alberta crown agency.
