A bit about us

Geoff Earnshaw

Geoff Earnshaw

Shopping Centre Developments, Company Turnarounds, Strategic Planning and facilitating Management Buy-Outs (MBO) was my core focus. Most of my clients were either JSE listed companies or international organisations. 

I have been most privileged to do what I do, because every company turnaround is most rewarding, satisfying and helps all the employees.

On the personal side, I spent 9 very exciting years in the Royal Air Force of which 2 years was national service in Libya, 2 years on ocean weather ships and 5 years as meteorological (met) leader of a met recce squadron.  This was followed by 5 years in Nigeria as GM of Kingsway Stores in Lagos.  I then returned to South Africa and formed Earnshaw and Associates focusing on Company Turnarounds.

For recreation, I hold yacht and powerboat skipper licenses as well as a private pilot license with twin rating.

Business strategy, management, creative direction and people’s personal growth is my passion in life. 

Many business people ask – How can I run my business better?  How do I expand my business?  Who do I speak to?

The extensive knowledge I have gained over the years having run our own businesses and many JSE listed companies successfully from a CEO level, I enjoy utilising the experience and knowledge gained to assist local business people strategise and implement business plans that can assist in the growth and success of their businesses and people.  

On the lighter side, I am a sea skipper, scuba diver, seasoned 4x4 traveler, photographer, love the outdoors, visiting game reserves, creativity of all types and enjoy spending quality time with family.
