About Your Speakers

Poppy and Geoff

With 5 kids successfully launched to college, we will share our do’s and don’ts for attendees. "Heart healthy communication,” is the motto of relationship experts, Poppy and Geoff Spencer, one they learned to put into practice through their many years of communication research. Myers-Briggs Certified, a parenting expert, and with 7 years teaching psychology, Poppy and Geoff created the Emotional Clock® and a relationship program they successfully use across the country to revolutionize the way people and families interact and communicate.

Their own communication breakdown three decades ago, shaped who the relationship experts have become today: why they wrote a book, created and trademarked a diagnostic communication tool and program, and have spoken to hundreds of people about the #1 essential ingredient in any relationship.


“Relationship experts, Poppy and Geoff have their own, personal amazing story and it is clear from the start that they use that experience to instruct, guide, and encourage others in their own relationships. They have a way of engaging with people and getting them to open up and communicate and, as a leader, I know that communication is key in any relationship.” –Keith Quick, Vice President of Operations, Sarasota Family YMCA
