Glenn Watkins


I believe in shared life-long learning that is challenging, inspirational and fun!

30 years of commercial leadership combined with digital expertise and experience working with blue chip organisations and leaders of small and medium size businesses.

After 10 years in IT (half human, half geek), I co-founded the world’s first social business network in 1998 and as Chief Executive, together with a small team, grew it globally with half a million businesses.

A member of the Academy for Chief Executives and Group Chairman for over 10 years (proud to have received Chairman of the Year award 2015 and a certified NLP coach). I’m delighted to have sold my Academy business to integrate into the Vistage UK and Global community of leaders to continue our experiential learning journey.

My purpose is working with progressive business leaders, delivering fast track learning, inspirational leadership and better decisions for business growth and a more fulfilled life. I am curious about all aspects of people, business and our world. I have a passion for motorcycles, nature and adventure. I love time with my family, time in the wild and exploring life.
