Colleen Francis’ background

Colleen Francis is driven by a passion for sales and results. A successful sales leader for over 20 years, she understands the 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. As a keynote speaker, she inspires, educates and engages with her audiences helping them to deliver results.

Colleen works with business and sales leaders to synergise the sales DNA of the organisation to seize market opportunities. Some of her most successful projects have been to design a strategy to target a new market and she has worked with many teams to improve their productivity.

Her experience and results have attracted global brands including Merck, Abbott, Merrill Lynch, Royal Bank, Dow, Adecco, Trend Micro, NCR and Chevron.

As a speaker, she is known for her frank, no-nonsense style and approach to accelerating sales and reducing effort while increasing profits. Colleen’s practical strategies deliver immediate and long-lasting results.


She has been recognised as a Certified Sales Professional (C.S.P.), is a past President of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers and is a member of the Canadian Speaking Hall of Fame.

Colleen and Engage Selling have also been called by Sales and Marketing Magazine as “one of the top 5 most effective sales training organisations in the market today!”
