About Ovation

Brian Collins, actor, spokesman, and corporate coach was born and raised in Chicago, and attended the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. He did his postgraduate work in nuclear physics, and then served in the submarine force for seven years while traveling extensively in Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.


Brian began his acting career on stage in San Francisco, and has since appeared in Simon and Simon, Falconcrest, The Young and the Restless, General Hospital and many other soaps, series and movies. He has represented corporations in thousands of industrial film, trade show and convention presentations. Check out his full resume at Ovation.tv.


In 1986, he founded Ovation, a training company that has helped thousands of business executives, politicians, and other professionals become dynamic public speakers.
Brian has perfected the Earprompter, a cutting edge system for delivering speeches word-for-word without using notes or memorizing. It is a dynamic presentation tool – once used only by actors – that is easy to learn, easy to use, and helps others “Speak Like A Pro” whether in the boardroom, the classroom or on stage. One of the few Earprompter experts, Brian offers the training and the equipment necessary to make it happen for you.

In 2009 Brian officially teamed up with Louie Stevens, to form Ovation.TV, a company that produces films from concept and writing, thru videoing and post production, to delivery. The films are dynamite, the testimonials are glowing, and the prices are reasonable, especially considering that between them, they have garnered over 30 international film awards (and counting).
