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.

Colin’s approach to coaching, like his own speaking, is powerful because of its emphasis on authenticity. He promotes no formula. He has no “shtick.” He focuses instead on discerning, drawing out, and fully developing a client’s voice and message so that it can be heard. It is what makes Colin a terrific resource for seasoned speakers and for those terrified of an audience.

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.

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!

If you had told me 7 years ago that speaking and presenting would be a regular part of my business, I would have said you're crazy. Except that I'm married to Colin. He took me from panic attacks to confidence in a few months time. I never thought I'd get over the butterflies, or know how to shape my message in an impactful way, but here I am getting hired to speak! When he says he can help, he really means it.

Colin's energy and humor are contagious and one can easily see why he is so in demand as a speaking coach!

Colin was an energetic and altogether encouraging speaker. His inclusion of the two case study speakers was a very generous gesture that also helped demonstrate Colin’s storytelling techniques.

Phenomenal session. Content was specific, clear and concise. Tangible, applicable steps. Awesome case studies. Colin was a superb speaker and I love that his content is so easily to apply.

From the laptop of Colin Ryan

Hi there!

My name is Colin. I’ve been speaking for more than 10 years, to hundreds of thousands of students and adults about a very challenging subject: personal finance. Yikes.

Which means most of my career is about making a first impression that gets results, especially when the stakes are high.

From the beginning I knew it would take every ounce of my effort and creativity and determination to find a way to make such a boring, confusing, depressing, subject into a memorable, accessible, inviting, practical, and conversational experience.

And, it wasn’t an option. This topic is too important to *hope* they’d stay with me. I knew I needed to engage them from the very beginning with my introduction. I figured out if I started by choosing what I wanted my audience to do next and designing a story showing how I learned the same lesson in a memorable way, I could combat the negative emotion my important message brings.

The result: not only have people in my audiences learned how to hack bad habits, they’ve learned to let go of shame, laugh in times of stress, and take hold of their power to reframe their mistakes into meaningful lessons they can share with others.

Sometimes audience-members will share things with me – in front of hundreds of people – that they’ve never told to anyone. I’m honored every time it happens.

But I know why it does. And I know exactly how you too can get people to open up on any subject.

In this 5 day challenge, I’ll show you how to share your unforgettable intro story and see the difference immediately!
