Colin and his team are masters at planning and carrying out complex projects that bring together business, academic and government partners. He is not afraid to ask questions and has time to make sure everyone understands what is needed.
Professor and Physician at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (U of T)
I have personally worked with Colin as an Executive Coach and have realized the benefit of his process and coaching to assist me in dealing with specific predicaments that I was facing at that time. His ability to very quickly connect and reflect the situation back to me in way that allows me to view the situation in a new light empowered me to move forward and make powerful decisions that I was having difficulty doing in isolation.
Colin is a great thinking partner and mentor for someone in a senior role that may not have always have other individuals for sensitive issues to act as a sounding board. Colin has also been an excellent coach to one of my employees where I have seen immediate and impactful outcomes that have had bottom line results!
Scotia Wealth - Portfolio Manager
Colin has been a pleasure to collaborate with. I have benefitted both professionally and personally from his coaching. He has a wealth of knowledge and insight to share with regards to improving behaviors, priorities and outcomes. His professional demeanour and amazing interpersonal skills allow for rich, open and honest discussion that both keep the sessions focused and relaxed. Colin has a very powerful way of holding his clients capable rather than accountable and inspires action and different ways of thinking. I would recommend his service to others.

Colin is a professional in his role as an executive coach. He quickly develops rapport, knows his subjects well, generates trust and follows up quickly.

I would highly recommend the experience of receiving coaching from Colin.

Colin is excellent at listening and interpreting bigger picture issues. He is thoughtful and is able to generate thought provoking responses at the right time. Beneficial changes resulting from our engagement were my ability to clearly articulate what I want in a negotiation with confidence and be more open to negotiating each opportunity and not discarding options too quickly. This has significant value for me at this juncture in my personal and professional life.
