I enjoy connecting with people. Sharing in conversation. Exchanging stories.And listening.

The direct message (DM) portal that Instagram provides allows me to continue sharing in conversation post my ‘real world’ interaction whether that be in an educational,sporting or corporate setting. People like to ask further questions,for direction or just share their thanks.And I like to be able to respond (in-person) with haste and the same level of consideration and honesty I share in the real world.

Here are some recent examples…
Hearing your stories meant a lot to me, especially how open and trustworthy you are with sharing those things! STUDENT

Your persona and drive to give back to the world inspires me as a teacher. Creating connection like that in just 2 hours truly is a gift. STAFF

Hi Glenn 🙌 I just want to thank you for inspiring my son.He suffers from XXX,XXX and XXX and was so anxious about returning to school today. When I picked him up from school I was expecting a lot of negativity but he was so positive and all he could talk about was your presentation and how it inspired him. I think he was meant to be at school today and I’m so glad he went. Thank you for being such a positive influence on XXX and I’m sure a lot of other students’ lives ❤️ PARENT

Listening to you telling your precious stories really made a difference beyond just the students STAFF

I am blown away at what a difference you made to me, and the way I think. Keep being you. Every single person that gets to experience what I experienced with you, will cherish it forever! THANK YOU ❤️ STUDENT

My son has just spoken about Glenn Manton for an hour after school.He never speaks about anything after school! PARENT
Fantastic Feedback
I hired Glenn Manton to perform as the Master of Ceremonies at our annual forum to inspire leaders in the youth and education sector. Glenn also had the role of keeping a panel of accomplished speakers on track and fielding questions from a passionate audience of over 100 community services professionals and educators . This was no easy feat and Glenn managed it with seamless grace and class. From his first syllable Glenn had the audience captured and engaged. People were literally on the edge of their seats and they know they were not there for another typical boring PD but something special! Glenn kept up the energy throughout the whole day and made it look easy (even though I am sure he was exhausted as he really gave the role so much). He is a change agent, a leader and make people want to do better. I highly recommend Glenn to speak at your professional event! Thank you Glenn, you were everything and more!

“The session was insightful, on point and engaging. Glenn has a style that is unique and his ability to be raw, authentic and open with the group allowed us to dig deep and share our experiences in a safe and valuable way. Feedback from the group was overwhelmingly positive and it was great putting together something that was refreshing and compelling but still achieved its objective.”

“His energetic and personable delivery style was very engaging, catering easily for a group of 50 people ranging from early 20s to early 60s. The time went incredibly quickly and many of our staff commented on how powerful Glenn’s presentation was; not only was it relevant to our work with students but also in our own lives and relationships.”

“Glenn has been an invaluable resource to the school over the last 5 years in his capacity to delivery raw, real and compelling pastoral care programs to our middle school and senior school students. The impact he has on students and staff is profound and I cannot recommend his programs highly enough. Glenn’s unique ability to level with young people and see them in their way is truly special.

“Glenn has a natural ability to work with all ages, proven when Glenn was asked to speak with staff, students and parents. On all three occasions Glenn delivered an experience that provoked, motivated and engaged audiences to reflect and act on opportunities presented to us all no matter what age. Glenn makes a difference.”
Daniel Thomas
Head of Primary, Professional Learning Teacher, Billanook College
“Glenn's obvious command of his audience was evident to all. His humour, ability to challenge the orthodoxy, and help the audience see their own personal ability to influence others was second to none.Glenn's story telling and honesty was clearly a highlight.”
Lisa Alexander
Former Head Coach, Australian Diamonds Netball Team
‘Honestly, even now, I still reflect on this session. The way that Glenn was able to facilitate us having excellent conversations with simple prompts reminded me how easy and important it is to get to know those that we work with more ---- everyone has something interesting to share! But more than that, I loved how genuinely curious he was - the subtle probing questions Glenn asked off the back of our first answer always led to some really interesting insights.’
‘The session with Glenn Manton allowed us time to talk about interesting and thoughtful things with our colleagues and connect in a way that rarely occurs in an office environment. It helped to strengthen relationships with peers and understand each other better on a human level.’
'The team activity with Glenn was clever in that it put people out of their comfort zones AND created an environment where individuals felt safe to share information about themselves and their experiences. He was very generous to share details about his own life and learnings along the way.'
‘We were looking for a guest speaker who could support our objectives of building connection and trust within our growing team. Glenn’s afternoon with our team couldn’t have done a better job at hitting the brief. He crafted a session that enabled authentic connections to deepen through storytelling, and empowered all of us to be comfortable sharing and connecting with our peers on a new level.’
