Geoff Davies – Website Maintenance
Geoff was born and raised in the UK, holding an Aeronautical Engineering degree from Imperial College, London. The first part of his professional career was working in the UK Aerospace industry and later becoming software manager for a team developing colour graphics terminals and TDS digitizers. Geoff then started as Engineering Director for a company developing UNIX based optical storage retrieval systems. In 1996, Geoff moved to New Zealand and continued to work in project management and software engineering for Christchurch based companies before moving to Nelson to retire. A chance meeting with Rod Dixon led to discussions about the KiDSMARATHON program, and the work he is doing with the KiDS in schools, the ABC philosophy (Agility, Balance, Coordination), and keeping the KiDS moving through health, wellness and Immunity. Believing in commitment and encouragement, Geoff also agrees that “Finishing is Winning and Winning is Finishing”. Rod asked, and Geoff was pleased to accept and be able to help support and maintain this KidsMARATHON web site.
