I share a few things in common with today’s esteemed guest on Uncorking a Story. Glenn Kaplan and I both worked at Foote, Cone, and Belding and we both live in Connecticut, but only one of us has made the New York Times Bestseller List (hint, it’s not me). He recently joined me to discuss his latest book Angel of Ambition.

Meet Glenn Kaplan

Glenn is the NY Times bestselling author of Evil Inc. and Poison Pill. He’s worked in the international art world and as creative director in global advertising agencies and a Fortune 500 company. 

Key Topics:

  1. How a lunch at a prestigious club in the early 1980s led to a deal for his first book, The Big Time: How Success Really Works in 14 Top Business Careers.
  2. Glenn’s experience being orphaned at a large publishing house.
  3. Why his ability to write believable female characters is a key ingredient to the recipe of his success.
  4. The story behind Angel of Ambition, Glenn’s most recent release.
  5. Why he’d tell his younger self to not strive for perfection during the writing process.
