Getting to know Geoff

Describe your typical weekday
Every day is different – and fun (although often challenging)! I get to work closely with people for most of the time, which makes the challenging elements more enjoyable – it’s always rewarding to be able to really help a client.
Sum up your career to so far
I studied at the University of Sheffield, then trained and qualified with Grant Thronton in Newcastle before moving to Haines Watts. I later became a senior manager at Deloitte. I now run my own business, Bell Anderson Limited.
What book are you reading at the moment?
Dead Scared by Sharon Bolton
How do you relax?
I enjoy watching sport, particularly football (although supporting Sunderland has taken years off my life!).
Which three words best describe you?
Supportive. Hardworking. Fun.
Who would you like to play you in the film of your life?
I have always liked Walter Matthau but it’s unfortunately too late for that to happen now.
What’s your worst habit?
I probably talk too much…
What’s your favourite saying or quotation?
I think it’s “To be number one, you must train like you are number two”, although my daughters would argue that it’s “You’re going to need a bigger boat” (I’m a bit of a fan of the film “Jaws”!).
