Kathleen Ventura is a conscious branding consultant, sustainability manager and TEDx speaker. She is a passionate environmentalist, feminist and advocate for plant-based eating.

Making a move that would terrify even the bravest of non-conformists, she quit her high-pressure sales job in 2012, sold everything, and set out to ride her bike across the United States.

Kathleen now supports leaders and businesses who understand that adopting a triple bottom line and showcasing social responsibility and sustainability as core components of their brand is what is going to give them a competitive edge and elevate their impact.  

She is on a mission to equip and inspire all personal brands to become conscious entrepreneurs, and has a vision for leaders mobilizing an entire generation into action to solve current global challenges. Her weekly podcast, Beyond Business, showcases brands already embracing social responsibility and explores the conversation about the importance of radical personal accountability. 

Talking and Teaching Points

Social Entrepreneurship – This is the new business-as-usual, and every personal brand and company should be embracing their unique opportunity (and responsibility) to stand for something and use their influence to inspire/educate/advance/show solutions to social and environmental issues. It’s time to be part of the solution.

Conscious Branding – This is the terminology I use to describe the effective and creative communication of a brands social responsibility and/or environmental sustainability. 78% of Americans want businesses to stand up for important social justice issues, if you aren’t communicating your business’s efforts through your branding you are leaving money on the table.

Environmentalism/Climate Crisis – This is everyone’s problem, but it is one that gets me out of bed every day and influences every single choice I make in my life and business. I can talk all day about causes, solutions, data, policy and just about anything else around this topic.

My plant-based, intentional lifestyle – It dictates everything I do. I am the healthiest I’ve ever been in my life, it is the most impactful way to combat climate change and, of course, it is the most compassionate way to live. I live intentionally by making every choice based on my unique values and priorities.

Living Intentionally – I truly believe that if more people were awake making intentional choices, actively participating in creating a lifestyle in alignment with their own values and priorities, that it would change the world. If we had everyone living a life full of things, people, events, jobs, health that they truly wanted we’d live in a much different world.

“I had the opportunity to work with Kathleen on an interview series event, and she BLEW me away start to finish. The moment I spoke with Kathleen, there was an energy about her that was completely contagious. Kathleen brings love, enthusiasm, and excitement into everything she does. She is able to beautifully articulate her unique story in a way that draws you in immediately. Kathleen is a storyteller, but above anything else, she is a role model and leader. Thank you Kathleen! You rock, woman!”

– Meg Kathleen Worldwide, Women’s Empowerment Coach

“One of the most impressive and admirable things about Kathleen is she lives such an intentional life. Every action, decision and insight she gives is done with intention, she doesn’t say or do things “willy-nilly,” which is one of the reasons I respect her so much. She walks her talk and it is evident. She is a world-class business and life coach and she encourages female entrepreneurs every single day to live their truth, take action and be intentional in all areas of their life.”
