Speaking ENDORSEMENTS

MELANIE LARSON

Manager of Outpatient Nutrition Services, Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa

"Colleen's arrival to Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa has been long awaited. Colleen was able to reach over 150 members and community participants with her graceful message supporting plant-based diets, but more importantly teaching both groups that it is easier than one thinks if you whole-heartedly choose this lifestyle. Colleen's support of every participant at any stage of change around plant based eating also sent home a message that anyone can do this and move their diet in this direction. Her compassionate, humorous, educational and honest perspective was very well received and appreciated."

MICHAEL WEBERMAN

Executive Director, Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM)

“Out of hundreds of individual presentations, Colleen’s plenary speech at the Animal Rights National Conference was one of the highest praised of the entire event.”

SHERRY COLB

Professor of Law and Charles Evans Hughes Scholar, Cornell University

"Colleen Patrick-Goudreau is that rare individual who manages to make everyone around her feel safe and comfortable, even as she challenges each of us to take a clear-eyed look at the painful truths that hide in plain sight. She ably inspires audiences to do what we can to make the world a safer place for everyone, human and nonhuman alike. I was very impressed when she spoke to my students at Cornell, as she engaged both their hearts and their minds, speaking her truth in clear and compelling terms while remaining warm, open and fully present for the students’ own perspectives and questions. She is a fresh voice on the horizon, a woman who will awaken our slumbering conscience while providing the support and encouragement needed to succeed. When Colleen talks, people listen!"

LEIGH SALUZZI

Executive Director, Atlanta Veg Fest

"Colleen has such a relatable, clever, and common sense way of approaching an audience that her presentation feels like real-talk with a good friend. Then she breaks out the hard-hitting facts with such a cool confidence that you can practically see people turning vegan in their seats.”

JOHN REID

Executive Director, Healthy You Network

"AtExecutive Director, Healthy You Network our event in Tucson, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau confirmed her reputation as a truly engaging speaker who is able to articulate the true meaning of compassion with clarity, humor, and conviction. In a world too full of people whose advocacy for a cause or point of view often comes across as convenient or faddish, Colleen’s passion for the welfare of all sentient beings was evident to everyone in the audience. Her ability to detail the role healthy, responsible nutrition can and must play in improving the lives of all animals, as well as the health of the planet, was deeply appreciated and was rewarded by a standing ovation.”

ERICA MEIER

Executive Director, Compassion Over Killing

"After Colleen spoke at the D.C. VegFest, people continued to mention her and her talk as a highlight that inspired them to change their food choices."

LINDA MIDDLESWORTH

Organizer of the Sacramento Vegan Society

"Colleen Patrick Goudreau is an internationally known author, lecturer and appears on National TV for a good reason. She knows how to change current worldviews by exposing the truth. Knowing her for many years, I have had my own clients make the switch to veganism after hearing just one of her phenomenal talks, which cover animal welfare, plant-based eating and the environmental impact of our food choices. She explains the existing world wide animal holocaust with her common-sense analogies, scientific facts and cultural exposes.”
