Past Engagements

“Glen also stood out to us with his Certified Virtual Presenter credential. As an organization making a pivot to a virtual event for the first time due to COVID-19, having an experienced virtual presenter for this topic was extremely important to us. Glen is one of the most engaging virtual speakers that I have seen and is completely deserving of the designation. He incorporated a wide variety of techniques, including the use of music, polls, audience participation, and more. The hour went by in a flash and everyone was engaged throughout the program.”
