Glenn Manton is a 178 game player for Essendon and Carlton Football clubs and a member of the 1995 Carlton Premiership side. A life member of Carlton FC, he's an inductee into the AFL 200 Club and played in three pre-season Premierships. Glenn has had plenty of media experience and is media savvy. He was a regular on Radio Vega 91.5, Fox Football programs and wrote a regular column for MX.
He has made plenty of guest host and personality appearances on a range of shows including the children's broadcast 'Totally Wild', the witty panel chat show 'The Glass House' and the top rating sports variety show Channel 9's Footy Show.
Glenn has performed his own improv/comedy show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival winning the Best Improv award in 2007 with a return season for 2008. He loves thinking on his feet and performing live.
Glen's semi autobiography Dead Bolt (2004) further demonstrated that he is more than just a sportsperson. He has also released a football dictionary Mongrel Punts and Hard Ball Gets - an A-Z of Footy Speak (2006).
In 1999 he co-founded Whitelion, a not for profit organisation assisting youth in crisis within the juvenile justice system. The organisation offers a range of mentoring programs and Glen is hands on motivating and building self confidence in young people in custodial centres. Glenn is one of Australia's most sought after Corporate motivation speakers.
Even though Glenn isn't playing AFL these days, he still trains every day, is extremely fit and thrives on competition. Any excuse to test his muscle, stamina and endurance, and he's up for it.
