Rave Reviews from Our Fans


“My wife and I lost our three-year-old son a few years ago and hadn’t laughed since. Sam Glenn was the closing keynote speaker at our annual conference, and I almost left before the closing. I am so thankful I didn’t. For the first time in years, I laughed. I even cried because I didn’t think it was even possible to laugh and feel good again. I know Sam isn’t a comedian, but he had everyone laughing and it felt so good. His realness and message behind the art had everyone captivated. I have been attending this conference for over 13 years and this was “literally” the first time I have seen and been apart of a standing ovation. I tried to catch Sam before he left as he was in a rush to catch the last flight home to be with his family. However, after sharing my story with him, he put his bags down and rebooked his flight home for the next day. We walked to the coffee shop, grabbed a cup of coffee, talked about life, the joys of fatherhood and laughed.

I don’t know too many people who would do this for a stranger. When I asked Sam, “Why?” His reply, “Because someone once did the same for me.”
I honestly believe when you hire Sam, you are not just getting just another speaker, but a genuine person who cares. That is so rare today. So, if you are on the fence about having Sam speak at your meeting, let me just say, “JUST DO IT.”   You just never know who needs to laugh again. My 3-year-old loved to laugh and as a way to honor his beautiful memory, I will keep laughing.”

People told us that we should have had you open the convention rather than close it. Thank you for your service to our members!"

“Selecting Sam Glenn to come back for the fourth time to close out our annual Leadership Conference was an easy decision!  As we prepared for our conference and we had a great dialogue with Sam on the conference theme and how he could customize his message to relate back to our focus.  He brought our conference to a close with amazing stories that our team members could relate to and learn from.  Sam’s high energy and personality shined on stage and left us inspired and laughing all the way home!” - Gene B.

Both of his breakouts were standing room only. After hearing him speak, meeting him after getting my book signed I started following him on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. I get inspiration in all he shares. A++ speaker, A must have at any event big or small!!!" - Kris Kenney

I have to say Sam's presentation was outstanding. The group was attentive and if you could say "mesmerized" I would. No one got up and took a call, very few people if any were reading emails and texts. It was really nice to see people listening and learning
