Colin is an inspiration! He was the keynote speaker at our company’s leadership training and development offsite for our ed-tech startup. His experience building leadership at Salesforce and dealing powerfully with obstacles and failure in his adventure races was the highlight of the day. Colin is a storyteller who motivates while imparting tangible tools and tactics teams can use to drive success. The insights he shared to build and drive accountability, create transparency, and communicate effectively are already being implemented across our teams with a positive impact.

Success starts with a choice.
The choices I have made have taken me to the pinnacle of the sales profession. Selling, leading teams and mastering my craft by teaching back.
Through 20+ years of selling and running the toughest adventure races on earth, I have learned the fundamentals of high performance.
I am choosing to give them all away.
I started my first job working on 100% commission selling copiers door to door. It was soul-sucking and pride-swallowing work, but it laid my foundation.
Because of that choice, I learned to be ok with rejection.
In 2009 I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and found a connection to nature, with a purpose greater than myself. For the next decade, I would run over one thousand miles through the harshest of climates in six continents. These miles put me on the road towards my life’s purpose:
To inspire people on how to grow and perform at their highest possible level
Whether it’s climbing to the top of a sales organization, learning how to manage people, leading and teaching leaders or conquering your own adventure: everything starts with a choice.
We wake-up with the ability to make choices every day.
What choice will you make today?
