Kathryn Colas


Kathryn Colas – Respected voice and speaker on the Menopause.

Kathryn Colas resigned from a senior executive role in hotel management because of an unknown challenge that she was totally unprepared for.  Menopause, the debilitating symptoms, lack of awareness and the dense shroud of taboo were totally unexpected and difficult to accept. As someone who had always relied on her inner resilience, perseverance and bounce back approach, Kathryn decided to pursue answers to all of the questions that simply didn’t make any sense.

Kathryn Colas began to investigate, starting with a series of why’s, including why this natural transition was not on any workplace agenda and why women were simply expected to put up and shut up.

In 2012 she founded her first business, the women’s advice and support service Simply Hormones, and became a sought-after media commentator and public speaker, recognised for her work with NGOs, public and private sector organisations in improving understanding of menopausal symptoms; empowering women with better information while influencing policy and practices in the workplace.

Kathryn Colas became the first and only lay person to be appointed to the medical advisory committee of the British Menopause Society.

Kathryn’s media appearances include the BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour, BBC Breakfast tv and numerous national newspapers and magazines. She is also a member of the executive committee for Wishes – Action and Support for Invisible Illness.

In 2020 Simply Hormones evolved into a menopause training business, the Kathryn Colas Academy

Her keynote speeches include – “How to Survive Menopause Without Losing Your Mind” (and her book is also called How to Survive the Menopause)

We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.

Matthew Fisher and I have worked together for many number of years. I have always found Matt to be honest, good natured and willing to work hard always carefully selecting the best appearances to suit my personality and lifestyle. The work Matthew has delivered for me over the years has varied from schools, colleges, attending film premiers, guest speaking  to name a few all of which I have lots of memories and thoroughly enjoyed.
