Crisis management experience
Glenn has been in the middle of the some of the biggest news stories. Sometimes in front of the camera defending clients in the court of public opinion; sometimes quietly behind the scenes pulling the strings and calling the shots; or being among a team of people offering his advice to consult on major crisis situations.
He regularly deals with network news programs, top reporters from newspapers and magazines and has an iPhone (switched from BlackBerry) filled with contacts other PR people would love to possess.
He personally knows some of the biggest names in news and news gathering. And he’s not afraid to call on or leverage those contacts.
And in the legal world, though Glenn is not an attorney, we joke at the office that he often plays one on TV. He has vast experience dealing with legal situations and working with legal teams. He understands the law and understands how it impacts the court of public opinion and vice versa.
