In the football world his name is hallowed. In the 1966 World Cup Final against Germany he scored the third goal of his hat-trick in the last few moments of the game, and created a legend.

Starting out at West Ham United, straight from school (where he was also passionate about cricket), Geoff made 499 league and cup appearances, scoring 248 goals. He was Player of the year three times and won the F.A. Cup with West Ham in 1964 and the European Cup Winners Cup in 1965.   During this time, Geoff became one of the highest paid footballers in the UK.

Next was a stint at Stoke, and then West Bromwich Albion, Telford, and then Geoff’s career swerved in the direction of team management.

His role as assistant coach to the England National Team was followed by two years as Chelsea manager, and then a momentous career decision – to leave football.

With no commercial experience, Geoff enrolled on course to learn the basics of selling and gain a knowledge of his new product, insurance.

"Suddenly, I was no longer a well-known footballer and World Cup hero." says Geoff. "I was another man in the street struggling to pay the mortgage. In the space of a fortnight my life turned around completely. The induction course taught me how to approach people. Until this time, everyone had approached me - for autographs, for charity events, for photographs, for interviews, for TV and personal appearances. Now I had to learn how to approach strangers."
