Colin Kingsmill


Helping find humanity in a complex world


Colin was able to disintegrate every single issue form one on another and he managed to give all of my issue a specific space and place. By ranking it from the most important to the least important. What was so exceptional is that he manages to ask the questions so relevant that all of a sudden you realize that all your issues or obstacles are mainly linked to one personality trait. And once that is identified he naturally proposes positive actions and thoughts to tackle this on a daily basis. In additional to his great sense of listening, he has developed a characteristic in which you trust him fully with all your thoughts, issues and obstacles. Due to his unlimited patience he then explores these on all sides, which often gives you a much wider and much more positive aspect to your actual obstacle. Throughout this training and due to his training, I realize that some of his words pop in my mind when in doubt, or when in hesitation to take the next step forward. He is truly an inspirational personality on which you can build upon. I truly believe that the transition from my old entrepreneur career to my new corporate position could have not been such a success without him by my side.

Creativity and Intellectual Muscle

Colin clearly has exceptional flair in his field of expertise. His breadth of knowledge, combined with acute analytical skills make him stand out in a crowded market.  He works with creativity and intellectual muscle to offer insightful guidance.  Naturally positive in his approach, he doesn’t shy from bold lines of questioning to get a deeper sense of the issues at stake.  He uses engaging tools to explore brand concepts and encourages me to look harder before making key decisions at this critical strategic stage. It has been a joy to work with him thus far in my journey towards starting a business.

New Possibilities

Working with Colin has given me the clarity and confidence to move forward with achieving my goals. He has a gift for cutting through confusion to shine a clear, focused light on previously hidden possibilities. Colin brings broad personal experience and highly respected professional credentials to be the guy you want in your corner.  With innate wisdom and humour, Colin eased the stress and fear of facing needed change.

About Me

The day that changed my life forever began with a whisper.
At age thirty-five, I held a prestigious decade-long career in Swiss banking. To the outside world, I possessed all the enviable signs of success: an Italian bespoke wardrobe, two German luxury cars, and a high-end watch collection.
Inside, I was dying.
In a moment of clarity, I made radical decision. On April 6, 2001, I pressed the reset button on my life.

Suddenly, I stopped being a prisoner of my past, and became the creator of my future.

That decision transformed my life.

Within days, I gave away virtually everything I owned. I did not want any memories of the old status-seeking me.

In the spring of 2001 I moved back to Canada. I left Switzerland with almost nothing. It was extremely scary. I had no plan or idea of what was coming next in my new life. All I knew was that I did not want any part of the old life I was leaving behind.

I thought Vancouver would be a good place to start over. The city was known for its healthy quality of life.

I began to chart a course of accepting the unknown and deciding not to be afraid of what was to come next.

Every chance I could, I stepped into the unknown. At work, without hesitation, I changed divisions and responsibilities, changed countries and projects. With each change and new experience I have grown personally and professionally. I have travelled and enjoyed life and new friends in ways I could have never imagined just a few years earlier.

I have lived in Canada, Switzerland, The United States, The Maldives, Thailand, The United Kingdom and Montenegro. My clients have taken me even farther afield, working in places from Bora Bora to Dubrovnik, and many more in between.

Today, I have friends around the world who say “I want your job,” or others who say “you should write a book.”

And so, once more, I step into the unknown. I am now dedicating my work and life experience to coaching, mentoring and helping others navigate this complex world. Life, it turns out, is great.
