One Team, One Dream
This is not just a job. We’re changing the world for good so we always think and act ‘company first’. That means we share wins and support each other when the going gets tough. We think and communicate globally, collaborate and leverage each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
Always share ideas for improvements - big or small. Never walk past a chance to make things better and welcome questions at all levels of the business. Take time to learn – from each other and about the industry.
Live and Breathe It
Walk the walk and talk the talk. That means looking out for each other’s health and wellbeing; constantly searching for ways to be more productive and healthier; and focusing on our personal growth and development. Go hard – and go home.
We know that to be great, we need people to show us our weaknesses. So we welcome the challenge and being challenged. We don’t let frustrations build; instead, we tackle them head on. We look clients in the eye, tell them the truth, and we never walk away from a problem that we can fix.
We fly our flags and bring our whole selves to work. Our enthusiasm is infectious and we impress by being experts, not by being important. We celebrate our successes, don’t take ourselves too seriously, and leave our egos at the door.
We thrive on being accountable: we keep our promises, whatever it takes, and don’t promise things we can’t deliver. Our work is important and we treat it accordingly. As a result, we deliver in style, on both client and member expectations.

Behind the scenes, Glenn is married with three children. He is an avid runner who firmly believes that habit change, just like running, is a marathon – not a sprint.
Tom joined the Global Challenge (formerly known as the GCC) in 2007 and is tasked with guiding the organization towards its goal of changing the lives of a million people in a single year.
His leadership draws on seven years in senior management at Nestle, the world’s largest food and nutrition company, and his understanding of what drives consumers’ choices on what they put into their bodies. His passionate dedication to the GCC mission is built on his degree in biological science from Oxford University. A father of two and a keen runner, Tom is motivated by the vision of a world that understands that the keys to health and happiness are the little choices we make, not the pills or potions we take.
From day one John was responsible for developing and executing the Global Challenge?s unique creative strategy and ensuring that the Global Challenge?s scientific rigor is perfectly balanced with creativity and entertainment – because we all know that you can’t bore people into changing their habits.
In July 2014 John handed over the creative reigns to focus on his love of painting...canvasses not houses.
