Meet a Maverick Q&A - Glen Gerreyn

Glen Gerreyn - Motivational speaker & the man behind Revolution Red Campaign

Glen first appeared on our radar when he approached us about partnering with him to help promote ending youth suicide through Revolution Red Campaign. After a quick chat on the phone two things quickly became clear:
1) Glen is one positive and energetic dude with a passion to inspire people
2) We wanted to collaborate with him

So for the last month we have been promoting people to wear our red laces in support of Revolution Red and youth suicide on September 10. Proceeds from the sale of the laces have been passed on to Kids Helpline to ensure there is someone else on the end of the line for the youth who need it most. 

It has truly been a pleasure to put our humble laces towards a good cause and we are grateful to have met a Maverick like Glen. 

We recently got Glen to lace up and tell us a bit more about himself as the first instalment of our monthly interview series called Meet a Maverick.
