Keynote Speaker: Sam Glenn

With Sam Glenn, “It’s all about attitude and it all starts with attitude!” Sam went from working nights delivering newspapers – feeling negative and depressed, sleeping on the floor and barely getting by – to discovering renewed purpose, happiness and humor. Sam had one of the most negative and self-defeating attitudes you would have ever encountered, but something happened that changed everything!  Nearly 23 years ago, during a chance encounter at a buffet, Sam accidentally knocked over the legendary Zig Ziglar. This led to a positive friendship between the two, and with Zig’s encouragement, Sam got on track in a new direction for his life. Today Sam Glenn is known as The Authority on Attitude and is highly recognized as one of the most captivating keynote speakers.

For more than 19 years, Sam has been traveling the country full time, captivating audiences from every industry with his inspirational talks that focus on recharging attitudes for success. In addition to being an award-winning inspirational speaker, Sam is a gifted performance artist and author of 18 incredible books on personal and professional development. He has been named Speaker of the Year by meeting and event organizations and has won two national awards for his training videos. Hundreds of organizations use Sam’s videos to kick off their staff meetings and cultivate positivity in the workplace. Sam also has a popular online newsletter, A Kick in the Attitude, which he uses to randomly give away his artwork every month to one lucky subscriber.
Sam and his wife and two daughters are originally from Minnesota and currently reside in Carmel.
