“We were extremely fortunate to have Glen Sharkey as our course facilitator. In my 28 years working within this industry both in New Zealand and predominantly in the UK I can categorically state that the 'Safety Leadership' course was within the top two courses I have ever attended. The content and skills that we were taught are extremely beneficial both professionally and personally. Glen is without question the most dynamic, engaging, patient and humorous course facilitator I have had the pleasure of learning from”

“Thank you sooo much” for running such a superb and relevant seminar. The speaker was outstanding – interesting, knowledgeable, energetic and believable – in fact I didn’t find myself ‘drifting off’ and thinking about what I was going to have for lunch at all, like I often do when I go to seminars! Huge thumbs up to him!”

“When I began my journey… I would not have thought in a million years to be considered as a front line manager- I was shy and lacked confidence… Then I met Sharkey!!!!! I now have the confidence to be a GREAT leader. I often hear Sharkey in my head. What I admire the most about Sharkey is his passion to share his knowledge, his quick wit and that he always knows the right thing to say…”

Let me say how timely and perfect the session was for my team. We really appreciated your humour, your excellent people skills, and your "yellow" outgoing/fun personality that really fired up our team. The activities and learnings were engaging, entertaining, enlightening, and fun. My team are an energetic bunch when together but Sharkey , you really got them learning about how to work together, understand, appreciate and value each other, while having heaps of laughter. Thank you so much on behalf of the team.

"Since I have started my leadership training I have already called on the skills learnt in the course several times .This has been valuable in how I have managed issues and situations within my team and self-development . One thing you said to us as a group that highlighted the course was that it was about inspiring leadership and it truly has inspired me..!"

Leadership Course Participant

Glen Sharkey is an experienced facilitator who designed and delivered workshops based on our mission and values. He spent considerable time understanding our needs, culture and key business drivers in order to create leadership/management and ‘train the trainer’ programmes. Sharkey delivered transformational learning that staff could practice in real time. Engagement and participation levels were very high, and staff were very enthusiastic about the courses. In particular, they enjoyed the creative, dynamic, humorous and engaging teaching/learning style of Sharkey. He is a consummate professional and extremely efficient and effective with his approach to adult education. It has been very difficult to employ adult educators to facilitate workshops since the ‘Sharkey Experience’, as he has set the bar extremely high and our staff now know what an excellent educator looks and sounds like….and they won’t settle for anything less. Finally, the song ‘Simply the Best’ was the music chosen by Sharkey to describe his experience working with our organisation. I affirm that ‘Simply the Best’ describes our experience working with Sharkey.

Learning and Development Advisor

"The skills I have learned through the great experience of Frontline Leadership have been mind blowing to me. I have encouraged others in my workplace to ask their supervisors to place them on this training with Sharkey, as this won’t only change the way they work but change the way they think. I see Sharkey as the greatest teacher I have had and a fantastic mentor which I’m also very grateful for."

Team Leader

  • My Frontline Leadership training experience has been mind blowing- this training with Sharkey not only changes the way you work but changes the way you think. I see Sharkey as the greatest teacher I have had and a fantastic mentor which I’m also very grateful for.
