The Building Better Humans project was founded by Glenn Azar after he left the Australian Army where he spent 17 years working predominantly as an Aeromedical Evacuation Medic.
Having experienced the amazing resilience of humans when on Operational and Non-Operational Deployments around the world Glenn started to immerse himself in Personal Development and the study of Human Behaviour.
In 2010, immediately after discharging from the military he commenced his own adventure company, Adventure Professionals, where he leads people on adventure trekking programs all around the world to destinations in PNG, Africa, Russia, Nepal, Canada, South America and Australia.
In 2016 he commenced a podcast titled The Building Better Humans Project which now surpasses 500,000 downloads per year and growing.
Glenn operates as a personal mentor and coach to professional athletes, corporate CFO’s and CEO’s, and everyday people wanting to make changes and improvements in their lives. His philosophy is simple, if you’re willing to do the work he can assist you in getting the most out of yourself. If you’re mot willing to do the work then no-one can help you. You’re the magic ingredient in change and success. . . .
In 2016 his daughter Alyssa Azar became the youngest Australian to summit Mt Everest at the age of 19yo. She made the summit again in 2018 at 21yo making her the youngest woman in the world to summit from both the north and south routes. Understanding what drives high performance and how you apply these tools in any area were very clear to Glenn during the years it took for Alyssa to prepare for these amazing achievements. Glenn is a qualified Registered Nurse, Life Coach and is currently undertaking a Psychology Degree. He is committed to a lifetime of learning and growing so he can be the change other require of him.

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT LEADER
Glenn has a passion for delivering personal development to a younger demographic in what he calls ‘Up Stream Programs’.

Glenn is the host of the Building Better Humans Project podcast which has grown a large audience and records more than 500,000 downloads every year. Through this podcast he is able to provide personal and professional development tips to help everyday people through challenges and growth every day.
Believing that health and fitness is a key pillar in the building of a Solid Human Foundation Glenn founded Project 180, a gym in Brisbane which focuses on Building Better Humans through fitness, mindset and adventure.
After moving out of home around the age of 15yo Glenn eventually enlisted in the Australian Army where he served for 17 years. He attributes the many experiences in this time to why he believes in the unlimited potential of all humans and the very reason he founded the Building Better Humans Project in the first place. Through resilience comes growth.
This month our organisation engaged Glenn Azar to help reshape our culture and provide some personal development to our leaders and staff giving them the foundational learnings to help us on our culture transformation. Glenn brings with him a lifetime of experience and knowledge and has a unique way of embedding his messages through real stories that are relatable and inspiring. His passion to build better humans through personal and professional development is evident in every engagement. His ability to read a room, engage his audience and entrench his message is outstanding. Our leaders and staff all took something away from their experience with Glenn which will help pave the way for our future success. We are excited to continue to work with Glenn into the future and we are excited to provide our staff with the Building Better Human’s experience. Glenn Azar is certainly building better humans!
It is in the journey where the challenge lies and this is where we grow the most. The first step takes courage, persistence gets you through the rest. Your boots get grit, but so do you! I have learned more on a mountain than I have anywhere else. Glenn’s wisdom and life lessons are priceless. Alyssa’s inspiring actions are motivating on every adventure. Exploring the world with these two awesome humans is something for which I am forever grateful.
I met Glenn at a crucial time in my life. I had lost all passion for my career (Rugby League), I was single a party boy. I had lost an NRL career due to drug usage. I was suicidal and just couldn't see a way out of the funk I had found myself in. 12 months later I am reading regularly, I have found my passion for life, I am running camps and doing talks with Glenn to help build future generations and I have found the woman of my dreams who I intend to spend the rest of my life with. One chance meeting, a shift in mindset and your whole world can change. I have experienced it first hand.
DCB has been involved with Glenn Azar nearing 18 months and has been a back bone of support for Dan, myself and our team especially the last 8 months during COVID 19! We finished off the year with a 12 week program (Personal & Professional Coaching) focusing on the individual. Personally this was an epic program as we sometimes lose sight and focus of the why! Our business is all about people and what a better way to grow each other to be a better Leader intern team member.
"Glenn, where do I start? Far out the energy and inspiration you brought to the room on the weekend was like nothing I have experienced before. I am super grateful for the experience and the knowledge you have imparted on us. Thanks also for yesterday mate, I was kind of pinching myself at lunch. To be talking to the bloke I had been listening to since July was one of the highlights of this year for me so thanks again."
