Glenn’s presentation was an invigoratingly, inspirational experience that will help me continue to develop and share with my team a stronger philosophy of education that will hopefully benefit all of our students. Most of my team are beginning teachers, Glenn gave me some wonderful ideas for providing guidance and support. This presentation was truly outstanding. Dynamic speaker, “feel good” anecdotes remind you why you decided to be a teacher. Very positive. Take bow the committee who booked him.

I just wanted to let you know that Glen Capelli was an absolute hit with our somewhat small group of 9 people. Our managers were hungry for more and suggested Glen present a 3 hour session in future rather than a small session over dinner! Many of the concepts Glen presented tied into the following day and I was astounded at the amount of information people had retained about his presentation. It was a perfect match for our program and we were all honoured to have Glen present and share his genuine and colourful stories. Glen inspired all. I would definitely use Glen again for any and all of our development programs at Alinta. He really lifted the group’s spirits. Thank you!

The challenge always, is to find good keynote speakers who have a clear and concise message; who can articulate that message and make it relevant to the audience and, to strike a rapport. Glenn, you did all of the above. Well done and thanks.

Dear Glenn A short note of thanks for your contribution to the recent LEAD course at St.George. It was a wonderful journey, full of unexpected twists and turns, great lessons and plenty to ponder. Yours is a rare gift, thoughtfully developed, and I felt privileged to have had the experience.
