Will Greenblatt has been acting professionally since he was seven years old, initially starring in “The Homecoming” with Academy Award Winner Anne Bancroft, and receiving a nomination for Ensemble Acting with his co-stars. He worked throughout his childhood, appearing in Disney Channel shows like “Life With Derek”, “Radio Free Roscoe” and “In A Heartbeat”, and playing the lead role in YTV’s Screech Owls based on the book series by Canadian author Roy MacGregor about a hockey team who solves mysteries.

After studying philosophy, history, and literature at the prestigious Foundation Year Program (FYP) at the University of King’s College, Will Greenblatt decided to go to theatre school to hone his craft and become a professional actor full-time. He graduated from the National Theatre School of Canada in 2010, but the toxic environment of the program took a toll on him and his classmates; in the pre-MeToo era, this program was full of emotional and psychological abuse that had a negative effect on his mental health, already suffering from some traumatic events in high school, he quit acting. However,  Will Greenblatt learned a lot about navigating intense relationships, performing under pressure, what not to do as an educator and the lessons that he uses and teaches today.

In 2012,  Will Greenblatt moved to Spain where he discovered his love for teaching English. He lived, taught, and travelled in Europe for almost 2 years, and then dived into the world of entrepreneurship, co-founding an English/Business Training company in China. His first experience as a business owner, starting a Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise in China, raising $250K in angel investment with no business experience, and navigating seven co-founders was a crash course all on its own. The company ultimately pivoted and they parted ways, but again Will Greenblatt learned valuable lessons about leadership, pitching, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills that he wouldn’t trade for anything. What brought him back to Canada, was his back, which he severely injured during the stressful 80-hour work weeks on his startup.

Will Greenblatt returned home, unable to walk, work or take care of himself for the better part of a year, and found himself confronted with every emotional and psychological issue he’d been running from in Europe and Asia. He finally decided to go to therapy and change the way he communicated with himself and others, building emotional honesty, resilience, self-confidence, and clarity, which led him to his current path.

Along with his acting mentor, award-winning actress Nicky Guadagni,  Will Greenblatt co-founded OutLoud Speakers School, an agency of actors teaching public speaking & communication skills to entrepreneurs and executives. He has repeatedly spoken and coached at Google, Wayfair, Boston Dynamics, TechStars, Founder Institute, and Ericsson, as well as providing coaching to over 4500 individuals virtually worldwide. OutLoud’s clients have won numerous pitch competitions and raised over USD 200 million in investment. When he’s not running OutLoud, he still acts in film, television, theatre, and video games. Will is also a performing and recording musician, with his albums Borden Street EP and City Folk available on all streaming platforms. Will Greenblatt speaks 4 international languages, including Mandarin Chinese, and is currently learning his 5th, Urdu, to speak with his wife’s family.
