John Shanahan

The Glasshouse Report was created by John Shanahan, the creator and marketer of the wildly successful “Hooked on Phonics” reading program, with over a billion dollars in sales. Mr. Shanahan also owned and syndicated the “Doctor Laura Radio Show”, one of the most successful syndications in the history of Radio… and he was noted by “Advertising Age” as one of the top 100 marketers in the U.S.

Along with his other accomplishments, he is also a published author, ‘Harper Collins’, “The Most Brilliant Thoughts of All Time” and his restaurant in Dublin, Ireland, “Shanahan’s on the Green” was recently voted as one of the top ten steak houses in the world. To quote Mr. Shanahan, “The world’s a pretty big place.”  As his many successes demonstrate, he takes business seriously.

He came up with The Glasshouse Report concept after he, and his many companies’ fought their way through costly, debilitating, frivolous, employment lawsuits. And, now, after three years of development and testing, The Glasshouse Report, as unique in its approach to risk management, and employment lawsuit prevention, as “Hooked on Phonics” was to teaching reading…has been launched to great acclaim.
