Neil Glass works for Gemini Consulting, designing and launching major performance improvement programs for private and public sector organizations throughout Europe and America. He has wide-ranging experience in many key industries including railways, aerospace and defense, cars, satellites, financial services, fast moving consumer goods, pharmaceuticals, healthcare and foods.

In his 2005 book Rip-Off!: the scandalous inside story of the management consulting money machine he criticised the greed and sharp practice of consultants. His next book Plundering the Public Sector: how New Labour are letting consultants run off with £70 billion of our money was co-authored by Richard Brooks and addressed consultancy in the public sector. In April 2008 he published Squandered: how Gordon Brown is wasting over one trillion pounds of our money.

He adopted a pseudonym, and created the publishing house "The Original Book Company", to publish Rip-off! after it was turned down by conventional publishers "for fear, he says, that it might upset the wrong people". After it sold 10,000 copies his next two books were published by commercial publisher Constable, but he kept the pseudonym to benefit from the first book's success.

Neil Glass studied at Cambridge University and Warwick Business School.
