Colin Bockman

It’s quite surprising. He’s an achiever who literally started at the bottom. He has progressed hands-on Manufacturing to Sales Manager to National Sales Manager and at the time when he decided to leave the corporate scene to create his own consultancy, he was a Marketing Executive.

Melbourne-based, Colin Bockman is an Innovative Business Thinker, Professional Speaker and Consultant to leading companies in the formulation and application of successful Marketing Strategies. His clients range retail to manufacturers and include such names as Toyota Australia, Fuji, Bob Jane T-Marts, Kwik Kopy, Hungry Jacks, Cenovis and many more since 1984.

Toyota New Zealand has also benefitted Colin’s strategic approach by utilising his services to successfully launch their Direct Marketing strategy to the Dealer Network and Sales Teams. He also created their Customer Follow-up and Prospecting programs, resulting in significant sales growth.

Having experienced starting at the bottom, to Sales Management to Executive status, Colin is able to truly relate to his audiences – his Consulting and Speaking success are further reinforcement of his road-tested formulas. He is a living example of what is possible in Australia.

When you Really Need a Specific Outcome

“It is indeed a great credit to you that you managed to hold the attention of our entire audience at such an early hour on a Sunday morning. We have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback. A number of our Maxilab owners have already planned changes to the way they conduct their businesses and become far more customer-driven as a direct result of your stimulating ideas and novel approach. Thank you also for your skilful handling of our Open Forum or as you call it ‘Customer Focus Group’. After your highly motivating concluding segment all participants ended the day on a high.”
