About Colin D Ellis

Colin D Ellis is an award-winning international speaker, best-selling author and renowned workplace culture and project management expert who delivers speeches around the world that inspire, motivate and entertain!

Able to draw on more than 30 years of public and private sector leadership experience in the UK, New Zealand and Australia, Colin peppers his presentations with anecdotes, statistics, practical insights and plenty of English humour to ensure that audiences are engaged and laughing during and after the event!

He gets people talking through his emphasis on people being the best version of themselves and creating teams and communities they can be proud of. There’s often an assumption that everybody knows how to do this and that it’s easy to do. This is not the case and all too often the behaviours don’t match the positions that people hold.

Colin is originally from Liverpool in the UK and now lives in Melbourne, Australia following six years in New Zealand. He is known for his snappy dressing, sense of humour and love of karaoke.


Wow, Wow and Wow! Colin delivered a truly motivating, real and thought-provoking talk. I don't believe we have ever had a speaker who has had such a profound effect on colleagues, the energy he ignited on the day continues more than a week later.


In a different league! Outstanding presentations – highly visual, engaging and inspiring.
