My name is Glenn Walker, general manager, Skateboarding Australia.

My main role at Skateboarding Australia is planning and strategy, business development and branding and marketing.

In 2004 I joined Skateboarding Australia as a project manager, straight from Southern Cross University.

I really enjoy the opportunity to work with a distinct, unique culture. The opportunity to travel and experience new things. And the opportunity to make a positive difference in so many people's lives.

I studied at Lismore Campus Southern Cross University, that is in northern New South Wales. I did a Bachelor of Sport Tourism Management, from 2001 to 2003.

I guess, when I was in high school, I grew up playing a lot of sport, so I was pretty focused on just having fun with my sport. And kind of retrospectively applied for uni and was lucky enough to get in, it all just went from there.

My course helped me turn my passion for sport into the business of sport, and that was through the education and learning from the degree. So, very specific and up to date contemporary with its learnings and took my passion for sport and turned into a job.

I'm Glenn Walker and that's my story.
