Mayor of Canterbury

George was born in Walmer in 1939, educated at Radley, and served as a Royal Green Jackets army officer.

He is one of the pioneer life and business coaches in the UK and has coached nearly 3,000 people, privately and corporately, over the last 20 years. He has served as a Mentor to the Prince’s Trust since 1992 and as a Westminster city councillor for eight years.

In 2001, George was instrumental in setting up ‘Count Me In’, a free volunteer coaching service of 300 coaches worldwide to support victims of the 11th September disaster anywhere in the world. In 2005, immediately following the 7 July attacks in London, he and international colleagues formed ‘Count Me in Again’ to help anyone affected.

His background also includes 35 years as the owner of international public relations firms working in over 30 countries; 25 years as principal of a management consultancy.

Significant professional achievements include devising the original strategy for Thames Television and naming it, launching and advising Capital Radio and S4C, the Welsh Fourth Television Channel, as well as advising the Association of Independent Radio Contractors. 

He also launched the Village Cricket Championships, while other clients have included Proctor and Gamble, the Advertising Standards Authority, Clarks Shoes and several foreign governments.

George has publicised international film companies and film stars, the West End theatre and major pop groups including Smokey Robinson, the Temptations and The Four Tops. 

Over the last 20 years as a member, chairman and currently vice-chairman of the Marlowe Society, he has helped to stimulate an interest in Canterbury’s most celebrated son, the poet and dramatist Christopher, who grew up in Canterbury in the 1570s at about the time that George’s ancestors arrived as Protestant asylum seekers from Flanders.

This year George will be celebrating 40 years of marriage with Lillian. There are three adult daughters, a son and five grandchildren.
