Geoff Clynes is an Electronic Engineer with a Masters in Business Administration, but over the last 20 years has been a facilitator for business with planning and marketing, on the side helping small and start-up operations. No electronics now, the field moves too fast. He actually retired (for the third time) in December last year.
Geoff has authored two texts on Direct Marketing in Australia, and opened new national businesses for Texas Instruments (computers, 1970s) and Telstra (Business sales, 1980s). For much of the last ten years, as an adviser and contractor he has covered South and West Gippsland as a Small Business mentor (State Government related) and a Small Business Field Officer ( Australian Government initiative) and volunteered services to three local shires on projects such as bushfire recovery, and businesses that need help.
Inaugural president of a Baw Baw Home-based business group, and currently running a snooker club at the Warragul Club, he’s a fairly active contributor in retirement. He’s been a judge in business excellence several times for Gippsland Business awards and two of the local shires over the last five years. In spare time, there’s a gym club membership, five grandchildren are very stimulating, and he is working on a book of training, workshop and seminar material based on his learning experiences over the last eight years with Gippsland businesses and groups. The Baw Baw U3A group has him and his wife as members, and he delivers language courses (Indonesian, Latin) for the group.
