Colleen speaks around the world to audiences both academic and popular, religious and secular, young and young at heart. Since 2002, approximately 60,000 people have heard her speak at some 150 events.
Colleen serves most often as a keynote speaker at large Christian and women’s conferences. She also has delivered commencement addresses at universities, endowed lectures at colleges and hospitals, day-long retreats at military bases and keynotes at youth rallies, fundraisers and national gatherings of media, political and religious leaders.
Her reach is ecumenical: Colleen has headlined official diocesan events in dozens of Catholic dioceses, as well as speaking at evangelical and mainline Protestant churches and conferences sponsored by groups ranging from the National Council of Churches to the Gaither Praise Gathering and C.S. Lewis Institute. She has received invitations to speak at the White House and Capitol Hill, has served as a delegate to a Vatican congress and recently keynoted an international gathering of scholars at the University of Ávila in Spain to commemorate the 500th anniversary of St. Teresa of Ávila’s birth.
Colleen’s favorite topics are her books and issues related to Christian spirituality, culture and women. She can’t accept as many invitations as she’d like, but she’s always grateful for the chance to consider them.
