George Mordaunt is MD of the Mordaunt Group (retail motor dealership). During 2004 and 2007 the Mordaunt Group expanded rapidly and within 12 months of completing the expansion the entire organization started to collapse as a result of the global financial disaster. Following the success of Shepherd’s Pie, George set up Insight which for the first time ever enables business people to discuss all aspects of business, personal finances or banking on a one to one with George within a confidential environment. It is the only independent business advisory service that can advise based on actual real life failure and recovery as opposed to business advice born out of professional practice.
George has just launched his second book, 'Back in the Driving Seat', a sequel to the much acclaimed Shepherd’s Pie, which received international media attention for its excruciating honesty on how recession devastated his business and personal life and his first steps to recovery. 'Back in the Driving Seat' is a natural follow on, written in response to the phenomenal reaction that George received from other business people who were privately suffering, people who were inspired by his story and were seeking help and advice on how they too could be an active participant in their own recovery, a mantra that George lives by.
Launching at a time when bank debt is a hot topic, 'Back in the Driving Seat' is the first to give a step-by-step guide to recovery, the first to chart the process of a debt resolution programme with confidential details of the steps George took himself and the unpopular decisions he had to make to ensure the survival of his own business, and it is the first to confirm that debt write off exists and there is actually a policy document on debt write-off in Irish banks.
George is passionate about effecting change in our communities all over the country. He believes in the future economy of Ireland and has very strong views on debt forgiveness, banking resolutions and employment creation. Some issues George can speak authoritatively on…
• The Motor Industry changes in the budget – restructuring of motor tax, bi-annual registration, increases in petrol
• National Debt and the budget
• Bank forgiveness Vs Resolution (personal and business)
• Negative equity issues
• Banking solutions for property loans
• SMEs in Ireland Vs Multinationals
• Government initiatives for start ups
• Revenue or rent arrears
• News property charges
• First time buyers relief
• Increase in income tax
• Employer/ employee issues
• Asset reductions
George is extremely articulate and has done numerous interviews with the national and international media (from The Late Late Show to the New York Times). As a keynote speaker George delivers a passionate account of his experiences and drives home the message that business owners can get back in the driving seat and take an active role in their business’ recovery. George is available for motivational talks, after-dinner speeches and Q&A sessions.
