Glenn Kirkwood is first and foremost a leader that other leaders follow. With an entrepreneurial mindset and a sense of purpose for giving, Glenn’s approach to life is very refreshing.
He had a highly successful career in Sales and Marketing, working in the import/export industries for 18 years, growing businesses to many times their original turnover and selling them on for significant profits. Then one morning, he was taken to a meeting of business people where he came across a very different attitude from the cut and thrust of business as he had experienced it before: he heard the phrase Givers Gain. The philosophy that celebrates cooperation and mutual support over competition and rivalry resonated so deeply with him that, within weeks, Glenn had sold his last import business and acquired a franchise of Business Networking International, BNI. He is now one of the most successful BNI Franchisees in Australia, with his region growing from nothing to 480 members in just 5 short years.
