A new business based in Wilmslow, Cheshire has been launched offering businesses access to inspirational leaders who will help their businesses perform at the highest level. A spokesperson told FIRE that Georgia Group's consultants have climbed Everest, hold world records for skiing to the North Pole, captained boats in the BT Global sailing race, have been recognised in the UK's Honours system, continue work in professional sport and held senior business positions in firms like IBM, HP, M&S and United Utilities. 

Georgia Group has been formed to help business owners and managers to gain inspiration from high performing individuals so they can translate that to their own organisations. Georgia Group is led by a high profile board of directors including John Fay MBE who was received his award for services to leadership, Manley Hopkinson a former BT Global Challenge skipper, Den Power formerly of retailer Jack Wills and Falklands War veteran Simon Weston OBE.

The company's core purpose is to help employers and employees work together to create a high performing organisation. Georgia Group's inspirational consultants help to ensure its clients' people strategies directly affect their business strategy by developing programmes which utilise leadership development and engagement, employee relations, performance and reward and talent development.

The business launches with an impressive client list, including 12 English fire and rescue services, House of Fraser, Teleflex, Shop Direct Group and GAME Group. House of Fraser's CEO John King engaged Georgia Group to create a powerful strategic engagement programme to ensure that the retailer's 2,400 senior managers are fully engaged with its growth strategy. Also Manley Hopkinson, Director of Leadership and High Performance, has led and delivered the development of the Executive and Leadership Teams in Shop Direct Group during the difficult leadership period of bringing together of two large organisations of 18,000 people into the one. With Teleflex they are delivering their work in South Africa, Malaysia, Europe and the USA.

John Fay MBE said of the launch: "Georgia Group offers a very exciting proposition to business owners and leaders. In these tough times, businesses are ever more reliant on their people to deliver their strategies for growth, so ensuring that employees are motivated, aligned and engaged is more important than ever. 

"Georgia Group offers them access to a global network truly remarkable and inspirational people, who work with boards of directors and their management teams to help to engage and align their employees with their business strategy all over the world. The results are incredibly powerful, as we help to transform businesses into high performing organisations"
