“Your presentation to our physicians and their spouses was the highlight of the President's Dinner at our Annual Meeting in Coeur d'Alene on July 23, 1999. After-dinner programs are sometimes a challenge to find the right person to entertain and inspire. You did both! In my 15 years of organizing this meeting, I'm pleased to say that we've never had a better program. The feedback was fabulous! Our members and I sincerely appreciate your skills as a speaker and entertainer. We look forward to having you back.”
Robert K. Seehusen - CEO, Idaho Medical Association

I must say that your program was a tremendous success and one of the high points of our 5th conference. I have received many positive remarks and a lot of thanks for having such a quality speaker. Your “down home” approach made many people feel that you were one of us. It was nice to sit back and be entertained. As someone said after the banquet, “that was just what we needed.”

It has been a pleasure working with you.”

So many people have come up to me and said how much they enjoyed it. It gave them a great time of fun and fellowship, yet also had a great message. It is very rare when one person can speak to such a wide age group of people and attract and keep their attention. You did that and more.”

“Thank you so much for being the keynote speaker on August 18, at the first staff development meeting for this school year. You captivated the audience with your impersonations of political and musical characters. It was the first time that I can remember when a speaker received a standing ovation at the conclusion of his comments.

Many teachers and other staff members have commented that this year’s first day back for teachers was the best yet. Your message was both entertaining, inspirational, and was just what we needed to get this school year started on a positive and enthusiastic note.”

I have been working with this group for the last six years and have never seen the students so enthralled with a speaker like they were with you. A standing ovation during your presentation was a first. It attests to your ability to relate to your audience.

Again, thank you and when we need a speaker, you will surely be at the top of our list.”

"Glen Ward combines wit and wisdom in much the same way as Will Rogers in that he not only entertains his audience, but also instructs them in basic American values."
Mr. John S. Rainey - Chairman of the Board of Directors, Santee Cooper Power Company



"Glen, there were two things that I knew for sure about our annual meeting. One, that I would be tired when it was over and second, that you would do a good job. From the feedback that I have received verbally and through our surveys, you did an EXCELLENT job! The audience in attendance was the right demographics to not only relate but also appreciate your stories, messages, and talent. It is very rare that you run across someone with such broad appeal as yourself. I commend you on the ability to receive the highest marks with not only our managers but our member cooperative directors as well. Great Job!"
Joe Huffine - Tennessee Farmers Cooperative
