Speaking Testimonials

“After attending Kathleen Minogue’s presentation on Crowdfunding as a business tool I was blown away. Kathleen speaks eloquently and passionately about a subject she clearly is an expert on. My company has helped to produce videos for different Kickstarter or IndieGoGo campaigns in the past, and considered myself reasonably knowledgeable about the subject of crowdfunding until I sat in Kathleen’s presentation for 10 minutes, then realized I didn’t know the half of it. If you get the chance to attend a class or presentation, do it, better yet just skip straight to the call.” Ryan Oswald, Executive Producer & COO – Fire Department Sim Solutions

“Kathleen, yours was the most important workshop I attended to make my crowdfunding better. Thank YOU!”  Matia Karrell, Producer/Director – The Red Door Films

“Kathleen’s presentation at our 2016 Funders Forum in Culver City, CA was loved by all in attendance. The comments and reviews received on our post-event surveys all indicated that everyone left energized, informed and empowered – ready to build their individual giving programs through crowdfunding. Thanks Kathleen!” – Eric L. Moore, Founder & Executive Director – Educate California

“You’re like a walking TED talk!” – Mikery Hatfield, Executive Chef – Radisson Hotel Los Angeles Midtown at USC

“I invited Kathleen to speak at my MASTERMIND AGENCY GROUPS for Entrepreneurial Voice, LLC after learning of her expertise in CROWDFUNDING. The groups of women entrepreneurs were in different stages of business from getting ready to launch to having established businesses and not everyone believed the subject necessarily applied to them. However, Kathleen used her expertise to showcase how CROWDFUNDING and the principles behind it could benefit every business and shared new developments and insights into CROWDFUNDING that makes every business a candidate for developing their own crowdfunding campaign. Everyone can benefit from Kathleen and her expertise.” 
Jan McCarthy, Founder – Entrepreneurial Voice, Ladies Who Launch LA & OC, CRAVE LA
