Making sure his guests get the attention they need has been a hallmark of Glenn’s interview style dating back to his inaugural podcasts. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Glenn found himself hosting up to 4 podcasts that each featured insight into the various sides of the hospitality and travel business.
Glenn’s fascination with the hospitality and travel industry began when he was an entertainment reporter. Many of the press junkets he attended were held in hotels and Glenn found his attention shifting from his original subjects to the wonders around him. Cutting edge hotel design, amazing food and beverage, and passionate service associates eventually turned him onto covering hospitality as a full-time career.
When asked what Glenn appreciates the most from his guests he immediately says, “when they bring something unexpected.” The most “fascinating” interviews happen when guests are committed to transparency and are willing to give themselves over to the process.
