Meaningful Conversations by Geoff Hudson-Searle
The book has been written about three of the most passionately debated subjects in business today: Communications, Strategy and Business Development and Growth.
In February 2014, I set out as an author of Freedom after the Sharks, to write a weekly blog across a variety of subjects and foremost about people in business, opinions, research and tips, advise on some revelations, past and present.
This book demonstrates the relationship between communications (human 2 human), strategy and business development and growth. It is important to understand that a number of the ideas, developments and techniques employed at the beginning as well as the top of business can be successfully made flexible to apply.
Communications, Strategy and Business Development and Growth are essential for success and profitability in the business process.
This book provides a holistic overview of the essential leading methods of techniques. It will provide you with a hands on guide for business professionals and those in higher education.
Readers will gain insights into topical subjects, components of Communications, Strategy and Business Development and Growth, including a wide range of tips, models and techniques that will help to build strong and effective solutions in today’s business world.
The terms ‘Communications’, Strategy’ and Business Development and Growth’ have become overused during the last decade and have become devalued as a result. In this book I aim to simplify these terms and to re-value management and leadership by addressing topics and subjects in each distinctive chapter.
As Anthony Robbins once said:
“The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives.”
The book therefore covers all the essential components of Communications, Strategy and Business Development and Growth, but ensures that they are described in an engaging, enjoyable way with clarity.
More About Meaningful conversations
The following links take you to articles on my weekly blog, Freedom after the Sharks and are specific to my new book Meaningful Conversations.
I was really attracted to the name ‘Meaningful Conversations’ this book is very comprehensive, well written and articulates many subjects that effect today’s new world. It is really hard to distinguish which section of the book was my favorite chapter or verse as the three sections really charged and challenged my thinking, but possibly communications; building a life of happiness and success, the two dimensional world and finally the value of three dimensional communication will definitely resonate with me for some time to come. I enjoyed the book immensely because it touched so many subjects in today’s world that we do not necessarily address, with in depth knowledge and supported by measured research, I am sure I will find myself returning to the book for a second read. Whether by chance or cleaver distinction the author has captured the essences of the majority of the changing world we live in, an incredibly interesting read, even for the most modest of readers
What makes a book remarkable, useful and meaningful for professionals? Well, read (not only once) Geoff’s masterpiece and you will understand. This book is my “win book” from so many aspects. Meaningful Conversations has given to me a lot of practical and theoretical solutions for developing my communication skill and my attitude in business life. I enjoyed every part of the book not only because of its comprehensiveness but because of its well-written style. Great job!
What a wonderful author Geoff is, insightful insight and so so so good for what I need out of life.
Must read for any business professional developing a strategy for their company!
The book is divided into three key areas to make it easy to find the material you need. Each component is easy to locate by the titles of the short story at the top of the pages. Each chapter within the three components relates strongly to each other but is also interrelated to all the other chapters. Those with interest on certain topics may wish to start at their area of interest first, while those who prefer to read the book from the first page to the end will proceed as they started, there really is a topic for everyone in the book.
Business professionals and individuals in the great challenges of today’s business world have renewed responsibility for what business does best; innovate, invest and grow. Many people wait until circumstances force change and transformation, that can be radical and painful, this book will arm you with the tips, advise and techniques to provide fresh thinking to your everyday environment and to innovate your circumstances for a better environment, we are all extraordinary people and have the ability to share and provide wealth creation and richness to our surroundings, the question is how much do we want to be extraordinary.
This book has been written not just for people in a company or organisation, it is about helping and supporting understanding across a wide variety of subjects to anyone in life; students, budding entrepreneurs, business people and aspiring individuals.

Extraordinary insight into whole range of issues that face those in positions of responsibility. Completely accessible and invaluable guide.
Geoff has demonstrated his unique awareness and experience of how to succeed in business (or indeed any other human endeavour) by identifying 3 essential success factors. Simple as it sounds, it makes logical sense. Starting with the complexity of communication, he reminds us that without it nothing can move forward. His next step is all about the need for a clearly thought out strategy. Of.course, this is much more difficult to define and the appropriateness and effectiveness of the strategy will only be identified after implementation. The final leg is Growth and Planning. Providing there is good communication and a good strategy, then growth and planning will deliver the results. It is clear that Geoff is talking from a position of knowledge and experience and his thoughts and ideas make a lot of sense. All in all the book is packed with lots of useful nuggets and suggestions. A useful guide for any budding entrepreneur or indeed many CEOs.
Great book! Brilliant combination of practical guidance on key aspects of business development & growth as well as fresh look at some of the main challenges and opportunities facing businesses of our time. Strongly recommended for corporate managers and entrepreneurs.
Very thought provoking and one of those books that makes you want to refer to it and/or read it again!
Absolutely fantastic book, insightful and well written. It is a must have for businessmen, entrepreneurs and graduate students.
The author uses his experience to re-evaluate key business concepts. We all need to reconsider our take on business communication and strategy. This book was really worth the investment!
Brilliant approach to communication in today’s business as well with everyday life. This book should be used in business courses for it touches every aspect of human relations skills which many people lack. As an International Business Major myself, Geoff has much to offer for students, professors, entrepreneurs and upper level management. Impressive book! Worth my time and money.
Meaningful conversations is a brilliant follow up to Geoff’s first book Freedom After the Sharks. Although it is quite different Geoff’s passion and commitment are clearly present!
