Praise for Left on Red
"Bill Glynn has a unique ability to cut through the clutter and immediately identify what the key issues are facing businesses, executives, and entire industries, and solve them in real time. He can be brutally frank and about as subtle as a sledgehammer, but it is impressive how many times he turns out to be right."
Thomas Tull, CEO, Legendary Pictures
"In all my years of doing business with some of the world′s greatest leaders and most creative personalities, Billy G. is one of the smartest executives I′ve met. Left on Red is a manual for those who think differently."
Joel Katz, media icon
"Innovation is a way of life. To be achieved, companies must unlock the potential of their employees and surround themselves with thought leaders, allowing everyone to think differently. I encourage everyone I meet in business to pick up the phone or email Billy G. In the spirit of Left on Red, he is the ultimate super connector."
Glenn Armstrong, Vice President, Business Innovation, Amway, an Alticor business, one of the world′s largest private companies
"Billy G′s Left on Red is exactly what America needs right now to accelerate change and innovation."
Tony Jeary, strategic facilitator and coach to the world′s top CEOs
"Zone in. You don′t want to miss a thing here, lose your head, or worse, risk being left behind."
Greg Ray, CEO, International Speakers Bureau
