  • What clients say


    I had an important message and I wanted to make an impact. Glen’s ‘Voice of a Leader’ programme transformed how I speak and present. With his combination of 1:1 coaching and presentation strategies I delivered my first conference talk. The amazing crowd response inspired me to go further and Glen coached me all the way to a talk on the TEDx stage. Glen supported me to craft the content, structure and delivery of my talk and was available when I needed his help. ‘Voice of a leader’… it’s too important not to discover it.

    Dr Dimple Devadas, Doctor, Psychology coach, Global head of strategy WWA

    Glen has a very natural and easy style which makes participants on courses feel completely at ease. He has an amazing ability to give difficult feedback in such a way that people walk away feeling good about themselves even when they have not achieved what they expected. A rare skill. He is an exceptional facilitator and an incredibly entertaining speaker. If you have the chance to be coached or trained or by Glen I strongly recommend that you take full advantage of a fantastic opportunity.

    Simon Maryan, The Mind-Body Coach, Mentalist, Author and Speaker

    After accepting an invitation to give a 40-minute speech at the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investments annual conference, my nerves started to kick in and I contacted Glen! His personal coaching, with his logical approach to planning, his astute, perceptive insights into the finer points of public speaking and his calm reassurance all resulted in me delivering a speech of which I could be proud.

    Glen’s leadership workshop for Toastmaster leaders was truly a treat! He engaged us with practical applications of skills, all underpinned by good theoretical foundations. Hiis adroitly conveyed core message of adaptability as a leader came through loud and clear. The audience loved it. A strongly recommended addition to any conference!
