“Glenda is still my benchmark for her engaging and effective facilitation skills. She is one of the best presenters I have experienced and I am including Harvard Professors and visiting Professors to Melbourne! I was an undergraduate student of Glenda’s and then engaged her with a large US Based Training and Assessment firm as part of one of the largest Assessment Centre Programs undertaken 15 – 18 years later. More recently I have followed with interest her engagement skills with firms I have worked with. Her unique communications ability and genuine interest in people shine through to create a very memorable learning experience.”
