With a master’s in Human Behavior and a fascination with communication trends, Colette delivers the latest research letting the facts support the fun. She engages an audience with her energetic style, inspirational anecdotes and quick sense of humor. At the core of Colette’s presentation is her passion for sharing the tools, terminology and techniques that encourage people to excel.
Colette learned her message the hard way. She started out a big, fat liar. Literally! Only by telling the truth on herself and admitting her fears did she break through her complacency, lose 50 pounds, embrace healthy risks and enjoy success.
Colette found the courage to leave the safety net of a monthly paycheck and boldly step into the livelihood of commission-only sales. Working for sales legend Tom Hopkins, she quickly ascended to become the #1 sales producer. Her immediate success led to an opportunity to join sales guru Brian Tracy’s international organization, and shortly thereafter she became a National Sales Trainer for US West.
Knowing that it is more fun to learn through play, than to discover truths the hard way, Colette eases the audience into a heartfelt, humorous look into their own lives, bringing about the self-awareness that begins real change.
