Client Comments for Glenn Flood
- Glenn has a practical, sincere and engaging approach to delivering his key messages which despite his many significant successes were presented in a modest and open way to which everyone could relate. I believe all who attended would have come away a little more passionate and inspired as a result.

- Our awards night on Thursday night went off fantastically. Glenn got nothing but excellent feedback on his speech and MC work... top marks for his performance in all categories. He related so well to the audience (mostly dairy farmers) with his passion people and produce topic. He also went out of his way to call into our offices the following day to catch up further with us and has many plans for future with interesting ways to meld his training organisation with our industry as a paddock to plate type of arrangement. We look forward to the future.
