He has 37 years of futures research experience working for governments, international organizations, and private industry in science and technology policy, environmental security, economics, education, defense, space, futures research methodology, international telecommunications, and decision support systems with the Committee for the Future, Hudson Institute, Future Options Room, and the Millennium Project. He has addressed over 300 government departments, universities, NGOs, UN organizations, and/or corporations around the world on a variety of future-oriented topics.

Glenn was the Deputy Director of Partnership for Productivity International involved in national strategic planning, institutional design, training, and evaluation in economic development in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the Caribbean, and Latin America and created CARINET in 1983 as the leading computer network in the developing world, subsequently bought by CGNet. He has been an independent consultant for World Bank, UNDP, UNU, UNESCO, FAO, UNEP, US/EPA, USAID, and several governments and corporations.
