The Culture Group

Glynn established his first company - a leading youth consumer magazine, challenging the way young people learn - at the age of 15. He now works across private and public sectors and his initiatives have been consumed by millions of print media readers, by tens of millions of television viewers and over a billion internet visitors.

'Culture Group', founded by Glynn, creates initiatives to entertain, inform and inspire. They do this by developing digital strategies, formats and partnerships to create social change. Learning platforms that result in loyalty and growth for clients including Google, Virgin, Red Bull, Comic Relief and Santander.

Having worked with a ‘who’s who’ of the entertainment industry, Glynn sits on an Editorial Board for BBC Worldwide, served on the Advisory Board for Welsh Government and co-founded Young Brits as a social enterprise to champion young business talent from the UK. He is a UK Ambassador for the European Cultural Parliament’s Youth Network and the UK’s Lead Entrepreneur delegate at the G20 Summits.

Glynn became a Director of UnLtd – a £100m Foundation for social entrepreneurs – for six years and additionally Director of Digital and Emerging Markets for Santander.

Glynn is a regular speaker on digital strategy, innovation in education, enterprise & entrepreneurship. His specialism is in emerging markets.

Glynn was appointed as a diplomat by the President of Mexico as a UK Honorary Consul.

 

"The DADI Awards continue to grow in importance, setting the industry standard. I'm looking for entries that really demonstrate their usefulness with the solutions they provide; those that showcase effective execution, with a strong rationale. And of course something that may be a bit different to the norm. I'm pleased to be a judge in the 2017 and be a part of celebrating such exciting talent."
