Currently residing in Houston, Texas, Glen Sartain is a Business and Information Management Consultant who is an avid runner, traveler golfer and wine taster. Glen believes in the power of laughter and its affect on our attitudes and the overall way in which we approach our day-to-day lives. To Glen, allowing yourself to laugh more relieves stress and in some cases extends your lifespan. Glen’s positive outlook asks that we always allow laughter into our daily life and avoid taking ourselves too seriously even in stressful situations.
Glen has traveled to all of the major continents in the world and visited more than half the countries. He loves traveling for business, pleasure and sightseeing. Glen believes a traveler’s perspective expands the more he or she experiences the world outside of their own little world. By traveling, an individual truly sees and begins to understand different cultures. Glen also enjoys wine tasting while he travels. Although, he prefers red wine produced in California, he has had the opportunity to taste wine from many different continents.
Because of his business consulting experience and expertise, Glen also enjoys learning and teaching other business leaders about business infrastructure and data management.
According to Glen, the majority of the time, businesses are building from antiquated business principles or out-dated infrastructures. Once these companies reach a critical point they can no longer function due to the structures they have built around them. In other words, we build structures and then structures build us. Being able to take a strategic look at infrastructure and see the failing points prior to failure is a major win.
To Glen, success consists of transferring the right information to the right people at the right time to make the right decisions. Today’s’ “data dump” environment can lead to an information overload on a massive scale. This might cause us to make poor choices because of the tendency to move too quickly with too little information. The challenge for many is the process of turning raw data into useful information. Glen understands a successful strategy involves integrating the relevant data points into a helpful and meaningful structure.
Glen finds a thrill in teaching whether it’s in a classroom, a boardroom or with a team. In Glen’s opinion, there are people who share information and there are people who transform lives. Glen strives to be the type of gifted teacher who manages to transform lives even in the smallest of ways.
