Cansquared Ltd

Hello, I’m Geoff Matthews and the principle of Cansquared Ltd. I created my business in 2013 and have been advising people regarding their finances since I left school… many, many years ago!

During the last 20 years I have specialised in working with employers and their staff to provide good quality retirement plans and financial protection in the event of death or illness. Of course, this has stood me in good stead with the advent of Workplace Pensions and Auto-enrolment, which is now at the core of my business proposition. I have already helped many companies, large and small, to ensure they have both a suitable and good quality pension scheme in place for their staff.

I also provide advice to individuals, so you don’t need to be running your own business to benefit from my services.

If you’d like to know how I can help you or your company, then please visit my website at www.cansquared.co.uk , drop me a line at info@cansquared.co.uk , or ring me on 07968 933642. Alternatively, you can call in to see me; I’m located in Unit 11 at Hebden Bridge Town Hall. Whichever you prefer, I’d love to hear from you.

From its humble beginnings in 2007, Incredible Edible is now a real embodiment of its ethos 'the power of small ideas'.

Starting with small herb gardens and community plots, the group has founded a food knowledge hub and fishery at the local high school as well as a merket garden for young people to grow and sell their own produce.  It has also backed successful campaigns such as encouraging the keeping of free range chickens and bees.

This work reflects the movement's drive to provide access to good local food for all through working together, learning, and supporting local business.

Inspired by this message other enthusiasts have picked up the baton.  The UK network alone has more than 50 independent groups and as a worldwide movement, it stretchesf rom Canada to New Zealand.  Each group differs, but with its memebership criteria being: 'If you eat, you're in!"

Since early 2000 Peoplework has trained 1000's of retail staff and sales teams from brand suppliers from the major outdoor businesses in the UK and Europe with our unique approach to training.

We have an in-depth knowledge of how customers walking into an outdoor or a bike store behave, how they want to be approached, advised, guided through ranges and ultimately sold to. We call this "Active Retail Culture". Customers need to feel relaxed and 'comfortable' in any retail environment. We build you a bespoke learning programme that is tailored to your technical retail or product brand and is guaranteed to improve customer engagement and boost long-term sales. We do this through real knowledge and understanding of what it takes to engage, listen and build product sales around the customers need and develop a rewarding brand experience.

At Peoplework, we recognise and understand that every member of the team is an individual, therefore we don't give her or her a script or a set way of doing things, they don't work. 

We build knowledge and confidence in your people and teach them about Active Retail Culture (ARC) and what your customers are looking for and allow the individuals to develop their own style within our guidelines.

That's why we are supported by the 'Outdoor Industries Association' and count on our client list some of the biggest global brands like The North Face, W.L Gore & Associates, Vans footwear, Blacks and George Fisher in Outdoor and Five Ten and SealSkinz in the bike market.
