Colin D Smith
Colin is ‘The Listener’, a listening skills specialist and the ‘go-to’ person for those who wish to be heard, think smarter, and transform their business and personal relationships through active listening.
Colin has an innate ability to actively listen to people, and works privately with individuals, enabling them to articulate their creative ideas, address their personal concerns, express their feelings more easily, and to achieve their personal, professional and higher goals.
He also works with business teams, facilitating the development and improvement of listening and thinking skills for them to address their Client, business relationship and innovation challenges.
Colin has had a varied and successful career in consultancy, business development, IT and customer support, across many sectors, including finance, motor, retail and the NHS. In looking back he realises that much of his success was due to his listening and connecting abilities.
His inquisitive and curious mind also enables him to explore, with others, unusual, thought provoking, yet grounded, observations and alternative approaches to business, people, systems and change. To make things happen, and to take ideas and thinking further, he connects his Clients with his trusted network of entrepreneurs, consultants, thought leaders, free thinkers, coaches and change makers.
