Consumer Psychology consultant - Author - Freelance writer - Blogger
Telstra Business Women Awards 2012 nominee
Profiled in Seth Godin's book True Tales of People Poking The Box and Making A Difference
Glennys's passion for people and problem solving saw her train as a psychologist and establish an independent consumer psychology consultancy, The Customers’ Voice. She has spent over 20 years exploring why consumers do what they do, which has given her the opportunity to meet a broad range of people including domestic violence perpetrators, SAS members, indigenous communities, CEO’s, celebrities and the most challenging of all, teenagers.
Her writing life began in the 1980’s at the Australian Red Cross where she produced the Youth Magazine. With the sudden loss of her partner in 2010 she wrote 50 Ways To Grieve Your Lover, which has been used in tragedies such as the New Zealand Pike Mine Disaster. As a result she was profiled in US internet and marketing guru, Seth Godin’s book called, True Tales Of People Poking The Box And Making A Difference. Godin’s book was the result of a worldwide competition which, unbeknown to Glennys, a friend had entered her into.
Her follow up book, Me Time: 100 Strategies For Guilt-Free Me Time, was born out of a desire to reduce the number of colleagues she saw suffering stress-related illnesses. It recently won a People's Choice Award.
In 2012 she was nominated for the Telstra Business Women’s Award. She sits on a number of government committees and is the Professional Development Coordinator for the Australian Society of Authors in Western Australia.
She has had several freelance articles published and her blog www.theponderroom.com, which is read in over 60 countries, recently won a Versatile Blogger award. She is currently embarking on her first fiction novel, with much trepidation.
