Who are you? Danny Wyrwoll

What does it say on your business card? Sales & Marketing Director


What is Glide? Glide are a white labelled energy provider who exist to make managing utilities simple and easy for Tenants, Landlords and Letting agents. We have bespoke systems and teams that help in consolidating all services into one straightforward bill. We do this for landlords with a portfolio of properties and students in shared housed. This removes the hassle of dealing with multiple suppliers and worrying about unpaid bills.

How do you help landlords and property investors?

Glide enables landlords to offer a simple solution to bills-inclusive rent through bundled utilities and service packages where landlords can receive a single itemized monthly bill for their portfolio of properties, cutting admin and attracting more tenants. Glide provides everything needed in a household including: Gas, Electricity, Water, Telephone, Unlimited Broadband and TV Licence.

Alternatively, Glide are able to bill individual tenants directly so that responsibility is shared amongst housemates and landlords receive commissions for the referrals.

What services do you provide?

We provide energy and manage utilities such as broadband, water & TV Licenses. We offer a bills inclusive approach to rents, or the ability for landlords to refer tenants to Glide and we’ll contact the tenants to offer our services and take the pain away from them directly .

Does Glide benefit tenants, too? Absolutely. We take the stress and pain away from tenants having to call multiple suppliers and set up energy and utilities themselves. We bundle all services into a single bill and split it evenly between tenants. This means no single tenant has to volunteer their bank card to pay the bills and rely on housemates paying. In the current energy market, this is especially important as it removes the financial burden from one tenant.

What advice would you give to landlords during the current volatility of the energy market?

Acceptance is key!! Energy is going to cost more, we all need to understand and accept this. Once the SVT catches up with the wholesale pricing then it’s about fixing in with a stable provider and product. Just because someone is the cheapest, it doesn’t mean they are sustainable in the current energy space. Just look at what happened in Autumn ’21 when so many energy companies went out of business. You can take advantage of the chaos offering bills inclusive rent. This allows you to offer a premium rental service, which is what people are looking for at the moment

What is your greatest achievement in your current role and what made it so special?

Re shaping and motivating the team here at Glides Shared Living division. Anyone working in energy has been through a tough time in  the last few months. I think it’s key to not only have the right people in the right places, but to ensure they enjoy coming to work and look at challenges in a positive way. Life’s too short to be uptight and stressed….

What is the most satisfying part of your job?

Meeting new people and constructing new commercial deals

What do you see as the biggest challenge facing landlords at the moment?

The continued changes to legislation, coupled with a highly competitive market makes it hard for landlords to keep up to date, and keep their properties full of happy tenants.

What is your property prediction for the remainder of 2022?

The market has to stabilize, if not decline slightly. We are not going into a boom, we are heading into more challenging times with the rising cost of living etc. The housing market needs to reflect this and settle down.
