She took her first degree in contemporary dance and theatre in London and then spent 7 years in South Africa, helping to set up non-racial educational arts projects with an emphasis on developing young leaders for the post-apartheid era. After her return from South Africa, Georgina spent a further 7 years in PR & marketing in the corporate arena, ending up in the City of London at international law firm, Ince & Co. In 1997 Georgina created Brightside Coaching Leadership and Development to work with CEO’s and their teams.

She is married to Richard and in December 2015 they happily, joyfully followed their gravitational pull to live beneath the wide open skies of Suffolk.
