Speaking Topics

Executive Presence: Leading with Humor and Heart

Executive presence is everything from how you conduct yourself on a daily basis, to how you react to conflict, to how you treat people when they are not in the room, to how you give a presentation when it matters most. Mastering the 3 pillars of presence – approachable expertise, confident vulnerability, and permissional leadership – will revolutionize the way you speak, show up, lead, and earn the trust of your customers and co-workers.

A Comedic Guide to Money

A healthier relationship with money requires more than just financial knowledge – it takes skills, resources, and the courage to act. Colin uses humor and storytelling to bring money to life, and to show you how you can manage money to create the life you want.
