“Wow! Glenda, your speech was amazing! In less than 7 minutes, you turned on the light bulb in the heads of many of us in the room – leadership is not about title and every one of us are leaders already. There was an immediate shift in our mindset – Oh, I am a leader already! Thank you, Glenda, for helping us make this powerful connection; enough of the hustle of trying to climb the corporate ladder striving to be what we already are.”

She embodies the best qualities of an educator, speaker, trainer, and coach.  She inspired me with ideas for streamlining my business and she challenged me to find the most effective way to engage my audience. Glenda has a fine ear for the smooth flow of ideas,  a quick mind to understand the deeper meaning of the speech, and a compassionate heart to  grasp the feeling behind the spoken word”
