“Our audience participants scored Colin as one of their favorite speakers of the [2016 Wisconsin Credit Union League Annual Convention]. I attribute that to Colin’s approachability, his ability to engage our audience [of 300], and his courage in telling his own authentic story. Colin’s speech helped people see exactly how they can connect and gain common ground with the people they serve, building relationships where people will feel comfortable enough to be open about their finances.”

“In our first seminar since Colin’s training, our new personal stories and stronger visuals created a much more relaxed atmosphere. We not only got more follow-up requests than we’d expected, but the audience clapped at the end, which I’d not seen happen before.”

– Annie M., New England Federal Credit Union

“Colin’s style of speaking is very engaging and interesting – lots of great humor and sarcasm. 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. Our team was inspired to change it up and try some new things!

– Rae G., Simple

“People went crazy for Colin’s wonderful session at The Collaborative, which was not surprising for those of us who chose him as speaker. We appreciated how much value he provided for our attendees.”
