Speaking & Training Clients
Honestly, we didn’t expect the educational sessions to help us, but I dragged myself to… an HR program by Glenna Hecht. Guess what? That program may have saved my business. Glenna ignited the spark — she reminded me that this is my business and that I am in charge. She taught me that I should rehire employees every day and to create a code of honor for the company that requires dignity and respect from and for employees.Heather Waits

I was first introduced to Glenna when I began with Wingstop Restaurants in November, 2014. While Glenna was already working our training department providing franchise training, we utilized her services to kick start our enrichment program. I have found Glenna to be a down to earth true hospitality and HR professional. She communicates and presents in a direct fashion and has an ability to connect with any audience while maintaining a high level of engagement. I highly recommend her to any organization who seeks to raise the bar.Kristin Nowak

Glenna has provided educational services for Beacon Training for the past several years in the areas of HR and Professional Development to a variety of industries. She is my go to person for HR related topics and issues, and is always frank, honest and forthright. I saw a different side to her recently when she did a keynote speech on Generational Differences. She was creative with the information, interesting, entertaining, AND spoke in a way that you remembered the main points of the speech, which is hard to do. She is also an excellent singer and I truly hope she incorporates that talent into her speeches in the future, which creates a bird of an entirely different feather… like a peacock… highly recommend her in the future for keynotes.Diana Stein

Glenna developed and led a hiring and management training session for Redi Carpet’s Managers that was incredibly insightful. The feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive. Furthermore, the value of what everyone received from this one-day training was extraordinary. It’s rare to attend a session where you feel empowered, motivated and inspired to take action, and that is exactly what we all experienced with Glenna!David Guzman
