About Our Trainer

The Trainer has a degree in Mechanical Engineering and has worked in the pump industry for more than 20 years. He originally spent ten years working with a specialist manufacturer of engineered pumps for the oil and gas industries. This was an ideal environment for learning about pumps, both hydraulically and mechanically. The oil and gas industries have a very wide variety of pumping applications, including large variations in temperatures, pressures, the type of liquid being pumped and the system design. In those years he gained experience in many areas of pump design, manufacture, application and sales. He now has his own training and consulting company. He regularly runs training courses all around Australia and has run courses and presented papers in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and New Zealand. He has completed an MBA in Technology Management and has gained experience in many areas of business, including; contract management, project management, quality assurance, purchasing, inspection and expediting, job review and process improvement, IT management, budgeting and forecasting and strategic planning.

Glenn now has his own training and consulting company and offers the following services:
• Pump system review
• Specifi cation writing, tender evaluation and purchasing
• Pump trouble shooting
• Pump & System Training Courses

His consulting jobs have included work in the mining, minerals processing, water, waste water, power and oil and gas industries. Some of his clients include: Unocal, Shell Refining, BP Refineries, BHPBilliton, Rio Tinto, Water Corporation (Western Australia), Orica, Alcoa World Alumina, Kvaener, Fluor, Worley Parsons, Petronas, TNB, Power Seraya, PUB, Singapore Petroleum Co and many more…...
