I provide encouragement and inspiration to mobile career adventurers of all ages and life stages through my free talk Navigating Your Career.

I was honoured to be asked to speak at the Undutchables International Meeting Day in 2009 in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Here is what Ardelle Mertens had to say about this experience:

“We hired Colleen in 2009 to participate in our International Meeting Day for expats who are searching for work in The Netherlands. The day was a great success and Colleen was an integral part of this success. From our first meeting until the event Colleen was personable, great to work with and delivered on all of her promises. She gave a 1 hour presentation to approximately 80 participants and was able to hold their attention and encourage participation with her informative and interactive presentation. I can highly recommend Colleen as a professional and knowledgeable consultant.”
Top qualities: Great Results , Personable , Expert
