Glen Carlson is an award winning entrepreneur and co-founder of the Key Person of Influence program which is a 40 week business growth accelerator designed to help the founders of skill or service based businesses become more visible, valuable and influential in their industries.
With offices in London, the USA, Singapore and here in Australia, the program connects delegates to some of the worlds most respected entrepreneurs and industry leaders as mentors and – based on the success of their clients – has been acknowledged by INC.com as “One of the top personal branding conferences in the world”.
The program presents a proven 5 step methodology for maximising your ability to influence and having applied this method to his own business, in less than 4 years Glen has built one of the fastest growing companies in Australia – Ranked 63 by BRW and 9th by Smart Company.
