What others are saying

This was the first time in our company’s history they they’ve given a speaker a standing ovation.” Esther Jeong, Diversity & Inclusion Manager, Moody’s Corporation, New York

This is one of the best speaker events we have hosted here in San Francisco – inspiring and eye-opening! We owe Alex Quade a much bigger thank you.”  — Lu Chen, Risk Specialist, Moody’s Analytics  

On behalf of the Employee Resource Groups, I’m writing to thank Alex Quade for visiting Moody’s in San Francisco. It was really nice meeting her.  I enjoyed hearing about her career, life experiences as well as the potential different takeaways applicable to the corporate world. Alex’s presentation and videos were engaging and interesting.” Clara Bernard, Research Data Analyst, Quantitative Research Group, Moody’s Analytics

Thank you, Alex Quade, for doing such a great job as MC at our annual Washington Women Veterans Summit! We look forward to having you back again next year!” — Lourdes E. Alvarado Ramos (Alfie), Director,Washington State Department of Veteran Affairs

At the heart of effective storytelling is the ability to build trust with — and connect to — compelling groups of people. In journalism classes, we call it ‘the human element,’ or the answer to ‘why should WE care.’  War reporter Alex Quade is answering that question in her own work, by finding relatable stories about people who are often shrouded in secrecy and whose stories often don’t return home to the U.S. with them.  Alex Quade is inspiring new generations of journalists.” Caley Cook, University of Washington, Department of Communication

I have known Alex Quade for about 8 years. In that time I have contracted work from Ms. Quade as a speaker, conference organizer and coordinator (introducing all speakers and acting as panel moderator).  My personal and professional endeavors are in the marketing, strategy areas for profit and nonprofit organizations. We privately and to small groups present contemporary “salons” on a variety of topics of keen interest to select parties. Alex Quade presents herself personally and professionally in a manner that is warm, engaging, thoughtful, appropriate to the audience and topic (death, dying for example was handled sensitively in a way that brought out audience participation in depth…life changing experience for some).” Parker J. Collier

Alex’s talk was wonderful, it was genuine and empowering – so thank you.  Our students really enjoyed it, them staying late to pepper Alex with questions afterwards is a sign of that.  I hope they didn’t keep Alex too late – it was wonderful that she stayed an extra hour afterwards until the last question was answered, as the students were really interested in everything Alex discussed.” — Negar Elmieh, Quest University Canada, MPH, Ph.D. Professor & Division Coordinator, Life Sciences.

We appreciated Alex speaking to us, and her efforts.  Her fearless determination, her stalwartness as she strives to enlighten us about the realities of war and those who make the ultimate sacrifices.”  — Lou Morris, HATCH EXPERIENCE, Hatch Organizer

What a great speech you gave to our Special Operations Association Reunion in Las Vegas, Alex!  I admire your audacity, covering these combat situations, and if you don’t know it, giving the men a great morale boost. You’re the prettiest combat reporter I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Normally I stayed away from anyone with the press, most out of orders to do so. I’m glad the powers that be, let you go with these forces so as to document, some of what we do. As you know, what we did in SOG, wasn’t DECLASSIFIED, until 2001. I only wish I could go with you on one of your assignments to share the experiences. I envy you. Take care and God Bless.”  — Bill Barclay, Special Operations Association

Thanks Alex for all you do…Your interviews bring it home to all of us that still have skin in the game.   May God bless and keep you safe!!!” — Larry Page, Special Operations Association
