​Colleen Pelar is a superb speaker! I have heard her present numerous times at very large conferences and in smaller meetings, and she has excelled each time. She is well-prepared, knows her material, speaks from the heart, and includes great humor. She is both profound and practical. There are many people who share my assessment of her, and in fact, I have heard only excellent comments from others who have heard her speak as well. I give her my unreserved and highest recommendation.

​If you haven’t heard Colleen Pelar present, you’re missing out! Banish the days of monotone speakers in a darkened room boring everyone to tears. Colleen is a passionate educator with a great presentation style that’s engaging, relatable, and fun. You’ll learn and almost certainly laugh out loud. I’ve heard her speak in multiple venues from a horse barn to a state-of-the-art conference center and regardless of whether she’s talking to 10 people or 200, she is a master at connecting with her audience and energizing the room. I recommend her wholeheartedly!
