InsiderPosted | Category: #BRMLegends, BRM Philosophy, BRMConnect Virtual | Contributed


We are thrilled to announce one of this year’s keynote speakers for the World BRMConnect Virtual Conference, Glenn Remoreras.

It all began with a declaration in 2018 at BRMConnect, San Diego. There, Glenn shared he aspired to become a CIO. Glenn believes visualizing your goals and desires solidifies your intention. Solid intention opens your heart and mind to the people, resources, and the help needed to realize them.

Just two short years later, that goal became a reality. In his upcoming keynote at the World BRMConnect Virtual 2020 conference, Glenn wants to share not only his journey to become CIO, but just how much BRM accelerated his personal and professional achievements.

I began volunteering in 2013, the year BRM Institute was established. It was my way of giving back and supporting the single, global BRM community. Little did I know, this experience would transform me as a technology professional, as an individual and as a leader. Through BRM, I found my purpose and built lasting relationships. BRM changed my mindset which strengthened my leadership capacity.” – Glenn Remoreras

Read on if you want to learn more about Glenn, his professional evolution, and to get a sneak peek at what he plans to share with the world!

Cultivating the Right Mindset

For Glenn, language is a lens into one’s behavior. Meaning, the words you use to communicate are a precursor to your actions. Through the process of advancing BRM capabilities and philosophies, Glenn began to change the way he “speaks IT”.

This internal shift in language usage began a mindset cultivation process which then caused Glenn to approach technology requirements and business problems differently and more effectively.

Ultimately, Glenn discovered his CIO potential through developing his BRM mindset and competency.

Building Lasting Relationships

Through his volunteerism dating back to 2013, Glenn made it impossible to not be impacted by the relationships he was building within the BRM community. While giving his time and energies to something he believes in, Glenn experienced genuine mentorship which propelled his professional development forward.

BRM has taught Glenn how and why to be relationship-centered in all aspects of life and especially in organizations; it promotes trusted teams, a mindful focus on authentic relationships, increased personal power and fearless creativity.

Driving Evolutionary Leadership

Aspiring to become a CIO is no small feat and most certainly requires excellent leadership abilities. So, just how does BRM cultivate such evolutionary leadership? Glenn will touch on these areas of impactful leadership in his keynote:

  • Helping BRM professionals find their purpose
  • Listening to learn
  • Teaching to develop others

These things and more are how BRM drives leadership that is convergent, collaborative, collective, and compassionate.

Coming Full Circle: Your Purpose

Do you feel pressure to identify your singular purpose in life? Glenn dives deep on this topic and shares how purpose isn’t a singular and unchanging thing, but rather like an onion. As your journey through life changes, so may your purpose. It’s just a matter of peeling back the next layer.

In his keynote, Glenn will share a framework for you to identify your purpose at any stage in life and how he used it in his own journey.

“In BRM, I’ve found my purpose, lasting relationships, and have discovered the methodologies to cultivate a mindset to drive great results.” – Glenn Remoreras
