Glenn Mead

Expert in how to use your mind to get the best out of yourself

  • Specialist in getting the best out of ourselves by understanding the way we think, feel and behave.
  • One of the six youngest Majors in the British Army.
  • Former corporate director at Chimp Management Limited.

Glenn’s area of special interest is in how we get the best out of ourselves by understanding the way we think, feel and behave, and how, once armed with those personal insights, we can become better leaders, partners and colleagues, helping others to get the best out of themselves too.

With over 20 years of operational management experience, Glenn has been working in the field of self- and organisation development since 2001. 

His professional career began as a commissioned Army Officer in an infantry regiment with its roots in the North-East (The Green Howards). In addition to operational tours of duty in Northern Ireland and Bosnia, in 1995 Glenn also planned and led the British Army’s first-ever expedition to Siberia, when a team of 20 young soldiers and civilians worked with the Russian Academy of Sciences on an ecological project on the frozen Lake Baikal (the world’s largest freshwater lake). 

At age 30 he was promoted to the rank of major, two years earlier than normal, making him of the 6 youngest majors in the entire army.

After 9 years’ service, Glenn followed a career in business management, working with Ernst & Young, Cap Gemini and Accenture. It was during this change of career that he read an MBA with the Open University Business School, including a module on creativity and perception in management, which opened his eyes and mind to coaching and psychology. After a further BSc Psychology, followed by an MSc in Occupational Psychology, and courses in executive coaching and stress and resilience management, Glenn worked with psychology consultancies specialising in leadership and engagement, organisation development and performance improvement, including time spent at Chimp Management Limited, getting to understand the emotional and rational components of decision-making.

Glenn now gives keynote talks on how to use your mind to get the best out of yourself, and runs workshops on developing more effective and resilient ways of making decisions. Managing his own well-being includes running in the hills and taking part in mountain marathons, balanced out by enjoying the company of friends over a pint, as well as time spent with family.
