His pioneering work didn’t stop there; Glen’s passion for sports psychology propelled him to specialise in the vital fields of resilience, mindfulness, strengths, and self-acceptance.

After extensive postgraduate studies in England, Glen discovered his true calling in coaching. Specialising in high-performing team development and peak performance coaching, he has been the secret weapon for numerous athletes striving to reach the zenith of their potential.
