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.
