Meet Sam Glenn - The Attitude Guy

 

[WHAT I DO]  I make conference meetings “positively unforgettable” by delivering inspirational speeches that elevate enthusiasm, engagement and excellence in life and work.  (As we like to say here...don't take my word for it...just ask anyone!) 

Things were not always easy for me.  In 1996, I was broke, depressed and working odd jobs to get by.  I had no purpose, vision or ambition.  I was toxic, negative and unhappy.  Most nights, I would sleep on borrowed floor space or in my 82 Buick Regal.

It was over a cup of coffee that a friend gave me a wake up call or what I refer too as a “Kick in the Attitude.”  He helped change my thinking in a better direction.  Since I was always focused on the negative, my mind always gravitated to the negative.  I realized that I was living my life with an attitude that wasn’t working for me. I had to change my attitude to change my life and that is what I did.  We hear about this think called “attitude” our whole life, but I wanted to go into the deep end of the pool to learn as much as I could….and I did.  I learned that that “everything” follows the attitude we put before us – both personally and professionally.  I discovered you can be the smartest person in the world and the most talented, but if your attitude isn’t right, you defeat your best efforts.  The partnership of a better attitude with developing skills creates a health and positive momentum that makes work and life more rewarding.

 

For the past 25 years, I have spoken to every industry you can imagine on the topic of attitude.  Mostly, I discovered that people just need a moment to recharge their mental batteries.  The number one comment I hear after every speech I deliver is, “I really needed that.

Since I am a visual person, I love to paint inspirational pictures while I speak.  Some call it the Bob Ross approach.  I call it having fun while I work. 

I love working with leaders who love to see people win. Helping people grow, feel connected, valued and empowered with purpose is how you retain great people. Great people are driven to create great results.  Real leaders acknowledge that truth and are always working on bettering themselves because they understand as they get better, their organization and life gets better. 

 

 

 

This video below is a vintage or older video of me speaking, but a fan favorite…enjoy the laugh.

 

I deliver close to 100 customized speeches a year to organizations who are looking for something uplifting, different and engaging. Most groups use my inspirational speeches to kick start their meeting to set a positive energy or tone for the event.  Some will wrap things up on a high note and send everyone out the door feeling ready to apply what they learned and experienced at the meeting.

Since, I customize my motivational talks, below are some key points and content that I share during my talk.  If you plan big meetings or know someone who does, feel free to throw my name in the hat – I am always grateful.  In fact, 99.9% of all my bookings are word of mouth.  I have built a very successful business on two primary things- trust and relationships.  When you deliver excellence, you become positively unforgettable.  And that has been my mission since day one.
