Testimonials for Glenn Manton
Glenn Manton is a creative storyteller weaving fragments of a jigsaw puzzle about life, hope, and regrets. I feel he reached the much-needed disengaged students. He spoke honestly and encouraged authenticity and to delve deeper into their responses and questions. For many students, it's the first time I have heard them be vulnerable. It was very moving and empowering.
Marymede Catholic College
Glenn Manton was engaging with all age groups and the message he provided was "spot on". The presentation to the Year 9 group was well received and the students loved it. Such a lovely person - very accommodating and insightful. One student's feedback "engaging, funny relatable."
St Joseph's College
We have engaged Glenn Manton twice to facilitate motivational sessions with our leadership group. On both occasions, pre and post the COVID pandemic, the feedback from attendees was unprecedent and enormously positive. Participants were grateful for the opportunity to step outside their normal routines, challenge their thinking and share more of themselves with their peers and management groups. Having worked with Glenn for many years, he has an uncanny ability to gently steer conversation to achieve our objectives, but with equal importance endears himself to the group in a way that encourages safe, open and honest communication. His style leaves you thinking, yet uplifted. Introspective, yet considerate and mindful of others. Over the course of a few short hours, we cultivated a greater value for connection, communication, empathy, respect and responsibility. We laughed, we cried, we shared stories, we learnt and we grew both professionally and personally – there’s not much more you could ask from a corporate facilitator
Head of Strategic Partners
One of the best team sessions I have attended in many years, it was open, honest and at times quite confronting.
It only gave everyone the opportunity to know a little more about each other which is always a good thing.
As they say there is a story behind everyone.
I truly believe the night touched a lot of us and has brought us closer, I’m proud to be working for such a great company.
I really enjoyed the experience, including being pushed a little outside of my comfort zone at times.
He was very entertaining and stayed on task of what the day was all about.
Glenn Manton was able to provide our network with an excellent Professional Development which was, under Glenn’s direction, “Participant Led”. The comments as we walked out the door were amazing! Everyone appreciated the manner in which Glenn presented as he was knowledgeable, humble and energetic all at the same time! We wouldn’t hesitate to have him back again.

Robert G. Ingersoll
Glenn Manton’s visit to Robinvale College showed his ability to connect with students of all ages, ranging from Grades 5/6 up to the most senior levels. His sessions with groups of students were based completely on honesty and integrity. A number of issues specific to the particular groups were discussed: many with humour and others with heartfelt responses, all of which were accepted by the everyone in the group as valid, real and in some cases courageous. The legacy left was that we all need to speak and act with integrity, being true to ourselves, yet mindful of others. We are a very multicultural school and Glenn made such an impact with all of our students and to this day has kept in touch via social media with our students.
We were delighted to have Glenn Manton as a guest presenter at a quarterly meeting of our business club.
Our grade had the pleasure of listening to Glenn Manton speak to us. What seemed to be another motivational talk grew into a deep emotional journey, which led to self-reflection and growth in each and every single student. It was confronting and emotionally charged at times however ultimately the grade changed as a whole and everyone opened up to each other. Personally, I really did enjoy the challenge to uncover what really makes me myself and I believe that it is incredibly important for everyone to know who they are - because at the end of the day, not everyone does.
