Built almost exclusively upon personal recommendation, his pedigree client list reads like a "Who's Who" of the world's top corporate, public, media and celebrity communicators - from political leaders to pop superstars, business leaders to Olympic gold-medalists.
A large proportion of the presenters and “media stars” on your television screens first unleashed their talents through Glenn’s training.
In fact, with over 600 previously inexperienced presenters alone ending up on-screen after his coaching, he's recognised for successfully training more TV presenters, hosts and on-screen journalists than any other individual in the world.
A growing area of expertise is in the arena of "live" competitive pitches and tenders, helping business teams and individuals compellingly communicate their service or product in competition with other providers. In the last 7 years, over 9 out of 10 of the pitches he's consulted on have resulted in his clients collectively winning an estimated £2.5 billion worth of business and counting.
His distinctive coaching style has been the subject of two BBC documentaries as well as inspiring features throughout the national press and media, attracting labels from, "the image doctor" to, "the confidence guru".
In recent years, media exposure includes:
Originally an award-winning magician and then a presenter - with a first on-screen appearance at just 13 years of age - he fronted over 500 hours of broadcast TV for the BBC, ITV and Sky. At 21, he was first asked to start helping others and, after much success, soon turned to coaching full-time.
He's also authored three top-selling books - two specially commissioned by Marks & Spencer and sold worldwide; and one for BBC Books, published both in the UK and USA.
Away from coaching, Glenn is the founder or co-founder of a number of successful businesses, including the PR consultancy, Pozitiv Communications and, based in London's Mayfair, the UK's leading specialist hair extension studio, Mark Glenn Hair Enhancement. Professional memberships include The Chartered Institute of Public Relations and The Society of Authors.

"The turning point was coaching from Glenn Kinsey... when up against professional presenters, not one of the TV industry judges spotted that his trainee - a Glasgow newsagent and mother of three - was actually the novice 'faker' with zero experience."
"Glenn Kinsey is the most successful trainer of TV presenters in the country. He is way too discreet to tell me whose career he's turned around, but politicians are among them."
"[Glenn Kinsey is] THE image doctor... he offers an exclusive coaching service in effective communication skills"
"Regularly engaged by producers to 'up the game' of big-name presenters and celebrities, a large proportion of the presenters and media stars currently on TV screens first unleashed their talents courtesy of Glenn's training"
