Specialist Communication and Performance for Sales and Leadership Teams
Dominic Colenso is a speaker who knows a thing or two about the highs and lows of performance. By the time he was 26 he had flown a Thunderbird, lost one million dollars and been fired by Simon Cowell. Beginning his career as a professional actor, he worked extensively on stage and screen before training as a director at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.
Performing in many of the UK’s leading theatres including The National Theatre and The Royal Court, Dominic has appeared on film in everything from BBC period dramas to big budget action movies. He is best known for playing Virgil Tracy in the Hollywood adaptation of Thunderbirds with Bill Paxton and Sir Ben Kingsley.
Dominic Colenso’s experience and fascination in how the body, breath and voice can influence performance led him to set up his communication skills training consultancy In Flow and to write his bestselling book “IMPACT: How to be more confident, increase your influence and know what to say under pressure”. Dominic now works with organisations around the world to help individuals, teams and leaders take centre stage and deliver outstanding performances.

“We have worked with Dominic and in flow for several years with a wide variety of cohorts. Initially we worked with a group of our aspiring leaders on impact and more recently with our senior leaders on the Accelerator programme. We have also found Dominic brings a professional approach to the sessions and the teams leave with more insight on their roles as leaders. We look forward to continuing to work with the inflow team into the future.”

"Dominic delivered a dynamic and highly engaging keynote on Storytelling for our recent Leadership event. Practical and interactive everyone left the session with tangible tools to take back into the business. There was a real buzz in the room and the feedback from the team has been excellent".

“Dominic’s virtual keynote was a hit with our audience. The context was full of actionable takeaways and Dominic’s experience as a screen actor shines through on video. The feedback was so good we immediately rebooked him for a second session, where he customised and realigned his content for a specific industry sector. Highly recommended.”
