Executive Facilitation and Consulting
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Glen during my first year of Vistage. As our group chair, Glen has been an invaluable mentor and coach. Glen’s best trait for me is diving head on into my real issues … some I don’t even see myself. He always leaves me with some new nugget of information – usually about myself or the way I operate – and a homework assignment as the first step to start facing my obstacles. Simple, yet very effective.Deborah HamlinExecutive Director, Cross Atlantic Capital Partner
I’m proud to call Glen my mentor, coach and friend. Since our first meeting, Glen didn’t just ask me the right questions, he also had the right answers. He has so much experience (from entrepreneur to turn-around CEO) that he is able to recognize patterns faster than most. This critical ability allows him to asses business scenarios skillfully and provide feedback rapidly.Dan Berger, CEO, Social Tables
Glen has a unique skill for asking the right question. In the process, he separates the wheat from the chaff to reveal what is important. If you’re honest, and are wiling to act, this insight gives you the basis to move your company forward in new ways.Paul Erickson, Senior Principal Architect, LeMay Erickson Wilcox Architects
Glen has been spot-on with his recommendations pulled from his many years of varied experience, and delivers no-nonsense advice and direction where it is needed most. I’m happy to recommend Glen to people who are looking to make their business better.Peter Hesse, CEO, Gemini Security Solutions
Since working with Glen Hellman, our revenues have doubled. Glen brings great business acumen, a tremendous network and a wealth of resources. He is an incredible supporter and promoter of his client companies and the DC area business community in general. Best of all, he is really darn funny and knows what really matters in life.Michelle Hoffman, CEO, Hoffman CFO
I am one of the most cynical people on the planet and think for the most part the earth will be better off after the Zombie apocalypse. Having said that, Mr. Cranky is one of the few people I would let into my safe house (at an undisclosed location of course) because Mr. Cranky is one of the few people I know who actually “tells it like it is.” No sugar coating, no pumping sunshine up my skirt, just good honest feedback from someone with relevant experience.Joe Landa, Founder/Inventor/Owner, BriarTek
