He recently launched KeepMovingForward.ca, to bring his years of in-person training experience to the online learning platform.
Colin has heard and seen the many challenges that face employment seekers today. “I’ve witnessed the desperation of people who have been without work for a long time or are employed in jobs they hate. I have also seen the elation of people who – armed with the right information and support – achieve their ultimate career victory. It’s an incredible experience that I want to help more people find!”
Colin’s wide range of career development experience led to the publication of “A Funny Thing Happened On the Way To… My Career!”, a creative self-help guide that uses his humor and illustration talents to help job seekers hone the skills they need to find work, even in challenging economic times.
Colin has an honors graduate diploma in Marketing and Business Administration, a certification in Adult & Continuing Education and Teaching. He is also a Competent Toastmaster, motivational speaker and a published author and illustrator.
