Testimonials

Glenn's qualities are extraordinary as he has a warmth and genuine ability to connect with each participant. Glenn provided a depth and meaning that genuinely created an experience that was beyond my expectations. I left the day richer for knowing more about Aboriginal kinship and culture because of Glenn's expertise and his skill in knowing how to draw on each participants insights and experiences.

I have come away from the workshop with a better understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal culture, values, and people and that was what I had hoped the course would deliver. Glenn is incredibly humble; he gave an energy that allowed people to talk about things I feel people generally have a lot of trouble confronting. This was one of the best experiences I've had in a while. I'll be on the lookout for more Personal Development workshops on the strength of this one.

This workshop was awesome. All participants bonded and seemed to learn a lot about themselves and their place in the world. The free and open encouragement of discussion based around the board game. Creatively presenting our learnings from the workshop at the end of day was highly fulfilling experience. I think if anything wasn't covered it was because no one chose to cover it. The workshop was totally open like that; if anyone wanted to cover something all they would have to do would be to bring it up. Only that it be promoted more to staff at VU, everyone stands to gain from more people participating in this workshop
