Colin Beavan is frequently invited to speak to businesses, conventions, schools, and colleges. Previous appearances include eBay, Clif Bar, the California Academy of Sciences, New York University, and Texas State University.
"Colin's talk was a hit with our employees. They found his down-to-earth style both accessible and inspirational. We ran out of books in about five minutes!"
- Jennifer Freitas, Human Resources Manager, Clif Bar & Company
"The members of the Albany Roundtable thoroughly enjoyed Colin Beavan’s presentation in May. To be better citizens, we must all grapple with the question Beavan asked in his book and movie: ‘Is it true that (someone) like me can’t make a difference? Or am I just too lazy or frightened to try?’"
- Colleen M. Ryan, President, Albany Roundtable
"Colin's book and his on-air interview with us at AM760 inspired us to organize our own Low Impact Week, and it was a great success. His leadership and inspiration motivated our community to start taking responsibility for environmental stewardship, one person at a time."
- David Sirota, "The David Sirota Show," AM760 Progressive Talk, Denver
"Colin Beavan was not only the eco-leader we were looking for, but also a wise soul sharing his wholeness with us all. During the keynote speech for the 2010 GreenWeek Houston he talked about believing in yourself; believing you are so powerful that you can make a difference. His message goes beyond being ‘green’ to being universal; one with the world and with each other."
- Maria Pesantez, United States Green Building Council Emerging Professionals, Houston
“Colin Beavan’s visit to IUPUI was an outstanding success. Colin and his staff were terrific to work with throughout the process. Colin’s public presentation to students, faculty, staff, and local community members was excellent. I was, however, especially pleased with how effectively, kindly, and inspirationally Colin worked with our students. We provided several opportunities for Colin to meet with small groups of students, who are working on sustainability issues on our campus. In every venue, Colin was generous with his time and extremely patient in responding to the students’ many questions. As a result, the students absolutely loved him. We hope that Colin will visit IUPUI again soon.”
