Inclusion is the most essential skill today. It requires that we constructively interrupt our auto-pilot thoughts about who belongs where, doing what. It’s not just about who gets hired or promoted. It’s also about how people are allowed to grow, to collaborate, to experiment, and to contribute. A culture of inclusion requires a mindset to see opportunity, anticipate the unexpected, unleash passionate pursuits, live with an entrepreneurial spirit, work with a generous purpose, and lead to leave a legacy.

Glenn then went on to form his own successful food business before transitioning into his current role.

Testimonials

“Llopis’ keynote tells it like it is: businesses are creating opportunity gaps rather than seizing the right opportunities for growth. His keynote not only tells us why but also shows how the workplace and marketplace must embrace the courage diversity of thought brings to rebuild an organization and leaders’ mindset to seize previously unseen strategies for growth.”

V.C.

Chief Operating Officer, Aramark

“Glenn’s keynote hits all the right notes when it comes to business growth. What makes Llopis’ six strategies different is they are profoundly human. Leaders must have the courage to seize the demographic shift and make innovative thinking a core competency. Llopis clearly explains why diversity of thought is a strategic imperative to building the future.”

S.N.

Senior VP, people & Organizations, Mars

“A new set of skills and strategies are required to be successful in the Reinvented American economy. Glenn’s keynote clearly maps out these strategies and teaches us how to operationalize them in a socially and ethically responsible manner. Glenn’s vision of the cultural demographic shift as an economic development force in the United States is both innovative and ahead of its time. His thought-provoking insights push the envelope and are extremely applicable to the business model of the future.”

A.W.

David C. Bohnett Professor of Social Entrepreneurship, Founding Director, Brittingham Social Enterprise Lab at USC Marshall School of Business

“Llopis knows firsthand that what moves people’s minds and hearts is what moves business. In a world of accelerating and volatile change, any company that ignores the lessons from his keynote does so at their own peril.”

R.C.W.

Clinical Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University and Co-founder and Executive Director of the Kellogg Innovation Network

“I had an unexpected and powerful experience through Glenn’s keynote and leadership program. It was powerful in that, in a relatively short time, the experience unlocked a significant well of human potential within me. It was unexpected in that I had not realized the depth of the power and potential that I had within all along. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to take part in this life changing experience program. I am more self-aware and make better use of my “internal toolkit” today than I ever have before.”

M.J.M

Executive Director, General Mills Foundation

“Because of Glenn’s keynote, we, as a team of Senior Directors, were able to accept the departure of our admired and respected VP with a transition of ease because we now have the understanding to develop and leverage our leadership identity to build momentum and create more influence. There was a belief among us that without employing Glenn’s methodology, this transition may have been met with chaos and uncertainty.”

W.S.

Senior Director, CVS Health

“When it comes to our diverse, multigenerational workforce and customers, leaders have been solving for the wrong things far too long. Glenn’s keynote provides the wisdom to solve for the right things and guide companies of any size to seize one of the last remaining true bastions of growth opportunity.”

F.D.

General Manager in Charge, Performance Optimization, Global Marketing & Sales, Mitsubishi Motors

“Glenn Llopis hits all the right notes when it comes to business growth. What makes
Llopis’ six strategies different is they are profoundly human. Leaders must have
the courage to seize the demographic shift and make innovative thinking a core
competency. Diversity of thought is a strategic imperative to building the future.”
