I speak a lot for events within my industry, but I stepped out of my comfort zone and accepted a speaking gig for a female entrepreneur group. They asked me to come in and speak as an expert on social media storytelling. I was so nervous–but I’m proud to say I knocked it out of the park and got incredible feedback! It was mainly thanks to Colin’s tips, especially the tip to describe “a scene rather than a movie.” It translated SO well–I built my entire talk around that concept! I wouldn’t have had these tools, or felt as equipped as I did, without Colin’s guidance! And bonus win–they’ve already talked about bringing me back on for future topics!

Colin truly hears and sees the people he works with. He helps you to show up powerfully on stage and open doors for more speaking opportunities. Colin reminds me that people need to hear my unique voice, and helps me remove the barriers in my way. I always leave our conversations feeling more confident in my abilities and more empowered to share my message.

I got further on my speech in one conversation with Colin than I’ve gotten in the last 6 months. Colin’s feedback has been invaluable. He helped me sit in the audience and understand what I would want to learn from me.
