Cites Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as his inspiration
Career: Senior Design Engineer
When the role of Project Manager was discussed, Glenn admitted that he’d had experience by meekly telling the others, ‘I was a driver’s mate, picking the rubbish up, no further than that’. He quickly opted out of the leadership role after Zoe had put her case forward so forcefully.
When Glenn was elected Project Manager by Lord Sugar, he confidently declared that, ‘I’m better than everyone else in this process’ and even went as far as to describe himself as a ‘catalyst’. So, it would seem that the task of creating, marketing and pitching a brand of cat food was in more than safe paws.
Glenn started off his venture into the beauty business with a hot curling tong and a dangerous amount of determination. Eagerly getting involved with the beauty manufacturers’ products, he went on to curl Susan’s hair, talk nail polish colours and enjoy a thoroughly relaxing foot rub.
During the shake up of the teams, Glenn found himself on team Venture, led by Project Manager Susan. Using powers of deduction that would have put Miss Marple to shame, Glenn identified the mystery ‘cloche’ item as a ‘metal lid’ and headed off with Jim’s sub-team to search for the other items on the hotel’s list.
Senior Design Engineer Glenn, was delighted to have his idea for an ‘accent imitator’ mobile phone App enthusiastically accepted by the other boys, claiming it was a ‘simple, cheeky, easy little App for people to have a bit of fun with’. Fun was the name of the game when he put his Liverpool and London accents to the test, recording the sound-bites and taking to the loud speaker at the games fair to push downloads.
After it was announced that the boys had lost the task, Glenn received a further blow when Project Manager Leon changed his mind at the last minute and brought him back into the boardroom.
Lord Sugar questioned if Glenn had the ability to be ‘technical and a good business man’, but decided against firing him.

Glenn was responsible for the team name Logic, claiming it was ‘clean and simple’, much to the agreement of the other boys. The boys decided on producing a liquid lunch of orange juice and soup, then set about acquiring the ingredients. After the juicing equipment failed, the boys were tasked with squeezing 1400 oranges by hand.
Edward’s lack of planning and the fact that they had missed the breakfast rush angered Glenn, who took it into his own hands to ‘man up’ and give the squeezers his own motivational speech.
This didn’t go down well with Edward. In the boardroom Glenn accused Edward of making ‘random decisions without any backing’. However, when it was announced that the team had lost, Glenn was spared a second trip to the boardroom and was sent back to the house.
Glenn was on losing team Logic. Their total profit was £432.13.
Glenn Ward took apart and rebuilt an entire computer aged 8 and his entrepreneurial streak ensued when he began washing cars in his local area at age 14. An amateur footballer, Glenn cites Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as his inspiration and describes himself as ‘an intelligent man with a dry sense of humour’ who can ‘read between the lines’.
