Colleen is driven by a passion for sales - and results. A successful sales leader for over 20 years, she understands the particular challenges of selling in today's crowded, confusing market, and that business leaders can no longer rely on approaches to sales based on techniques from decades ago—or even last year.

Colleen works with business and sales leaders to synergize the sales DNA of the organization to seize market opportunities. Whether designing strategy to target a new market or working with a team to improve its productivity, Colleen's results have attracted clients such as Merck, Abbott, Merrill Lynch, Royal Bank, Dow, Adecco, Trend Micro, NCR, Chevron, and thousands of other global organizations.

Time and time again, clients who work with Colleen note her frank, no-nonsense approach to accelerate sales while reducing effort and increasing profits. Colleen's practical strategies deliver immediate and lasting results.

Colleen is an award-winning writer and consultant, bestselling author, and member of the Speaking Hall of Fame. Recognized annually as the thought leader on the future of selling by leading publications world wide, Sales and Marketing Magazine has also called Colleen and Engage Selling: one of the top 5 most effective sales training organizations in the market today!
