Let one of the most popular TEDx speakers ever inspire and challenge your group through humor and thought-provoking analysis.
Best known for "How Movies Teach Manhood," a popular talk about what boys and girls learn from children's movies posted on TED.com, Colin weaves together cultural milestones that everyone knows, from "The Wizard of Oz" to "Star Wars," along with personal stories and urgent social and business issues, to make topics like racism, sexism, privilege, and diversity accessible. Audiences from major film studios to high school assemblies, from church groups to international symposia, acclaim Colin's entertaining and enlightening presentations.
Colin's speaking career launched in high school, when he was a national champion orator. He graduated from Harvard and pursued acting in New York City and stages across the country, where he learned how a well-told story can soothe an audience into complacency—or inspire them to transform their understanding of the world. He moved into into organizational communications, focused on the non-profit world, leading marketing and culture functions for education reform organizations. His three talks at TEDxBeaconStreet have been viewed more than 9 million times combined.
