Today on the Podcast I have a very special guest - Glen Carlson. Glen is the co-founder of Dent Global and the Key Person of Influence Accelerator. Dent offers training, advisory, and business services for rising stars of business, and they’ve recently completed their 97th intake of the KPI program.
When it comes to people who have had a profound impact on my business and life, Glen is up there with the likes of Paul Dunn and Daniel Flynn. He’s not only an expert on things like pitching, publishing, and partnerships, but his insights on giving through business are game-changing.
In this episode, Glen takes us right back to the days of growing his very first business with Daniel Priestley. He talks about the valuable lessons he learned around leveraging profile and building influence, and how that lead to the creation of the KPI program.
Glen also talks about his first giving experience in business, when he teamed up with The Hunger Project to donate the revenue from his event ticket sales. He talks about the incredible impact this giving gesture had on his business and the light bulb moment where he realised how powerful giving could be.
Glen also dives deep into the ‘multiplier effect’ of giving, explaining the multi-faceted benefits giving has on your business and life. He talks about the common objections to giving and how to get past them, and the emotional impact the Global Goals ‘We the People’ video had on his team. Glen will inspire you to adopt a giving program in your business while explaining just how easy and affordable it is. Enjoy!
