“‘Financial literacy’ and ‘comedian’ don’t usually go together, but Colin was great!!! He brought in a large crowd of parents and teens, and they had a great time. Colin showed us how saving money can help us reach our goals and make a difference in the world, all with humor and great slides. His only negative review: ‘I wish this presentation was longer.’ I want Colin to speak in every library in America!” Cathleen

Director, Troy Public Library, Michigan

“I loved how much I could relate to Colin’s stories.”
“It felt like a motivational talk without trying -not preach-y or lecture-y at all.”
“I could not get over how inspired I felt after Colin’s speech.”
College Reviews
“We were super impressed with how engaged our students were in Colin’s message, and how willing they were to share. Colin brings that out in people with his authentic and relatable way of talking to the crowd.”

– Mary, Director of Career Services, University of Vermont

“I could not get over how inspired I felt after Colin’s speech. Going to this event completely changed my view about my career path. Now I want to one day find a career where I feel as confident and comfortable as Colin does.”

– Will, Student, University of Vermont 

High School Reviews
“I’ve seen financial literacy programs shell out a hundred mini calculators, logo pens, and budget sheets and still not have the same kind of impact Colin had with my students. Colin was able to connect with them and apply the concepts to their own lives. And being a comedian increases his coolness factor by two. While few seem able to get this information across to teenagers, Colin had no trouble.”

 – Mercedes, High School Teacher

“Far from just another motivational speaker, Colin really connected with the 150 students and advisors of our Future Business Leaders of America conference. His message touched the audience because, as a former coward who is now a fearless comedian, Colin is funny, he is real, and he speaks from the heart.”

– Betsy, Director, Future Business Leaders of America

“Colin’s take on life, money, and our careers was amazing. I honestly never thought about my future in that way before. I now understand that if I save my money I won’t be giving up the joy that buying things gets me, but instead I’ll be receiving time and opportunities. For me this is a big thing, because I love to shop and spend all the money I have. Colin talked about something he was passionate about, and it made his message much more interesting and real. I believe that Colin is the best speaker I have ever listened to.”
