I absolutely love hearing people say, ‘We are working with Colin Pearce’. That means we are both working.
Nothing works if you don’t, goes the old saying.
And I love working with a company or a person whose intent is to be so good they can’t be ignored.
It could be you.
All you need is a commitment to being so good they can’t ignore you – and a few dollars.
We need to connect. Working with Colin Pearce is not hard.
Five ways to engage
1. Working with Colin Pearce as your star maker, for speaking or sales.
Speaker Coaching: Do you have a speaking engagement or product presentation to give? It’s common to be apprehensive and not know what to do or what to say and in what order. I have to say IMHO I am really good at getting the best out of any speaker. Tell me about it and send this automatically completed email.
I’ve been giving presentations all my life. I was a high school teacher and a TV performer in Gladiators so I always felt natural on my feet in front of a crowd. However. Working with Colin Pearce as a speaking coach took me to a new level. With a combination of observation, face to face feedback and coaching on Skype, he helped me craft and perfect my personal story into my presentations where I am getting amazing results and sales – and further bookings.

I started working with Colin Pearce through a network of Australia’s most distinguished speakers of the Professional Speakers Association. Colin offered his valuable time to coach and mentor me as part of the associations up and coming speaker development through the Kerry Nairn Scholarship in 2011. It was for my first major speech which was in Parliament House in the Grand Hall. I spoke in front of many distinguished guests and as a 21-year old, I was very inexperienced with sharing a story and getting a message across. Colin persevered with my inexperience and built the confidence from within me to present a memorable speech that I still hear about today. The way Colin can identify one’s uniqueness, and encourage them to share authentically is something that I will always cherish. Colin’s skills as a speaker and a speaker trainer is suitable for the seasoned veteran to the novice first-time speaker.

Taking a series of speech coaching lessons with Colin is like learning to read and write all over again only this time I had enough understanding and maturity to appreciate the benefits that were coming my way! My skin was thick enough, my voice deep enough and my spirit strong enough to absorb the constructive, insightful (and ‘politically incorrect’ admonishment) that leads to rapid learning. All my listeners are thankful that Colin took me under his spell of articulating everything splendidly.

You don’t have to live in my city, Adelaide. You’d be surprised at how easy it is to do this on Skype. If you are local, we can work out a way to get together.
However, I’m busy and accordingly I charge like a brain surgeon. If you feel you would benefit from working with me on a speech or business issue, send this email. Coaching inquiry. and I will see if I have room in my schedule. I’ll need all your details in your email signature. Work place, your role, phone, email, web site if it’s yours.
2. Enrol in a sales/communication course at my online school.

5. Working with Colin Pearce as your speaker
This has been my main activity for three decades so I have the procedures nailed down for you. Go to these pages to see my topics and the easy four step booking arrangements here. If you want to taste and try before you buy, have a look at some of the videos on my YouTube Channel
I gave my first public performance at the age of four as Wee Willie Winkle in the kindergarten Christmas play wearing a nightie and carrying a candle. The candle blew out and I forgot my lines. So I vowed that I would never speak in public again dressed in a nightie holding a candle.
But the stage and the spotlight became my life.
From my teen years I grew up to become an MC, preacher, teacher, television performer, actor, news reader, story teller, ventriloquist, sales trainer and motivational speaker, travelling all over Australia, New Zealand and 15 countries, including 28 states of the US. I’ve been at it professionally since 1976 – or earlier.
I’m a bit choosier these days.
I used to be like the legendary hobo. I’d go anywhere, eat anything, sleep anywhere, wake up not knowing where I was, and accept whatever money people gave me and not know where the next meal was coming from.
These days I’m a bit selective about where I go and how long I need to be away from home. But if you have an event in mind where you might need a rousing and entertaining provocateur, read the Book Colin pages and complete a booking inquiry. I’ll consider it and let you know.
