Glenn Watkins' Summary
I work alongside progressive leaders to transform business through leadership excellence & digital ROI.
Leadership - social influence that engages people to support and deliver a shared vision.
My background has both a strong people and commercial focus, with 25 years leadership and internet expertise working in blue chip and SME companies.
I co-founded the world’s first social business network Ecademy.com and as Chief Executive, together with a small team, grew it globally with half a million businesses.
Now my passion for leadership development and entrepreneurial business growth has resulted in a new business with the Academy for Chief Executives where, having “walked the talk” as a CEO member for seven years, I have created a flexible and select London group (Academy 88) specifically for busy CEOs and MDs of growing businesses which the members describe as "the board you could never afford".
To achieve ongoing success we must continue to develop and grow ourselves, what better way than being surrounded by other progressive leaders and experts?
HOW I CAN HELP
If you are planning an exit, or new to the CEO role, or navigating through uncertain times, or feeling lonely at the top, or experiencing work life balance challenges, or want real ROI from social media, or want to maintain an edge to keep ahead of competitors...I will listen to your challenges and opportunities and we'll explore how Academy 88 can be the catalyst to significantly grow your business.
I believe in shared life long learning that is challenging, inspirational and fun.
Membership is subject to group member synergy. We will work together with entrepreneurial CEOs and MDs who are headed to the top of their field, who have an open-minded, fun approach to learning and accelerated development resulting in new ideas that work, improved decision making and growth through leadership.
Please do contact to explore more and many thanks for visiting my profile.

I have been a member of the Academy for over 7 years, the ROI from my membership has been improved decision making, new ideas that work from fellow non-competing CEOs and MDs combined with higher personal leadership performance thus business growth.

The events are a focused morning experience meeting at premier venues in West Central London, alternating once a month with workshops from expert speakers and then working with non competing leaders in Academy's unique "board you could never afford" peer group sessions.
