“The event was a tremendous success! We were completely sold out. More importantly, Glennon was spectacular! I have not stopped getting messages from people about how much they enjoyed the event and how inspiring Glennon's message was.”Women of Temple B’nai Israel
We received nothing but wonderful feedback from her time on the main stage as well as her Q & A session. She had many old fans present but was also introduced to many people in our community who did not know her. She nailed it!Wisdom 2.0
The event went great. We've had a ton of positive feedback; the crowd loved her (of course!)! Glennon was so easy to work with and accommodating. She was so good to us and our organization and kindly and graciously tied our organization in a bit during her talk. The only complaint is that the night went too fast!Project 15:12
Glennon was superb. She connected with the audience, VIPs & event management. She was absolutely amazing to work with. I HIGHLY recommend her.AMOM Convention
Glennon was nothing short of fantastic. She had everyone completely engrossed. I was struck by Glennon's empathy—not only while she was speaking--but with every single mom who wanted to speak with her that night. Her story was inspiring, her anecdotes completely relatable, and her authenticity undeniable.MomCom 2014
I chose Glennon to keynote because she is different from all the other corporate speakers. From the moment she stepped on stage you could feel the energy in the audience.She caused people to think and look at the world a little differently, which is exactly what we were striving for. She did a fantastic job for us.Microsoft Corporation
