Glenn Gutek Speaking Engagement

We train business owners strategies and skills for scaling a business.

Awake Consulting & Coaching was started in 2003 by Glenn Gutek with a goal to help business owners learn the strategies and skills of scaling a business. By developing tools and systems to grow and develop leaders and a strong business, Awake has since worked with hundreds of attorneys, insurance agents, accountants, franchise owners, general contractors and others to grow their business in a way that does not consume their life.

“More than a great facilitator, Glenn Gutek understands organizations and how to lead them in strategic and business planning. As a consultant for us at the American Association for Justice, Glenn met with the staff and board beforehand, asked excellent questions to narrow the issues, built several planning sessions that guided us to new understandings and agreements and helped us shape a new strategic plan. Glenn is smart, insightful, engaging and an all-around pleasure to work with. I’ve worked with many consultants; Glenn is simply the best.”

“Awake Coaching and Consulting has made a huge impact on my business and my leadership! It has opened my eyes to several changes I needed to make in the way I and my team perform within the business in order to achieve results I’m looking for. What I appreciate even more than that awareness, is that Awake has helped guide and coach me on HOW TO MAKE those changes. Having someone to turn to, when I need direction or advice has really empowered me to move ahead with confidence.”
