PAUL GLOVER - Speaker. Consultant. Educator. - Member of the National Speakers Association

Paul Glover is a professional speaker who engages audiences with his extensive knowledge of current workplace issues in the area of human resources and labor relations. His ability to deliver meaningful information in an entertaining fashion makes him an effective presenter for any business audience.

A labor leader until 1992 and a practicing labor/employment law attorney until 1995, Paul founded the Management Consulting firm of Glover & Associates in 1992. His unique background as a former union official gives him atypical insight into the world of work, allowing him to effectively assist companies and their employees in reaching acceptable resolutions to workplace issues. Using his unique ability to view the world of work from two equal, but often diametrically opposed points of view - management and labor - Paul has conducted effective presentations, workshops, and seminars on diversity, conflict resolution, negotiations, communications, organizational ethics, and other workplace and employee related issues, all of which focus on achieving measurable improvement in the workplace.

Paul has a Bachelor of Arts in English from DePaul University, a Masters in Labor Law from Chicago Kent Law School, and a Juris Doctorate from DePaul University College of Law. Paul currently teaches management issues, employment/labor law, and negotiations and communications at the University of St. Francis, the University of Phoenix, Lewis University, and the College of Lake County.
