Co-Founder + DIRECTOR
Glenn’s first career was Air Force – which included roles as Engineer, Pilot, Squadron Leader, and Change Leader. After 13 years Glenn transitioned to the commercial world to pursue a new career as a management consultant.
The next four years involved working within corporate to facilitate major change initiatives. However, due to a desire to work on more dynamic change opportunities, Glenn began focussing on facilitating and mentoring entrepreneurs and business owners. This drew him to having a close affiliation with the Curtin University Centre for Entrepreneurship, and consequently during the next 20 year period, Glenn operated as a facilitator, mentor and chair of the Syndicates Advisory Board working with over 1,500 entrepreneurs/business owners.
Glenn then embarked on his third career when co-founding Engine Room Business Innovation – which enabled him to synthesise his life’s learnings into designing and delivering programs for Change Agents and Change Leaders. He also mentors business owners to apply their learning to develop a high-performing leadership team and transform their business.
