|"Hank Cardello is a smart, captivating speaker. Having watched him deliver 6-8 talks to global food company leaders, he is a leader in meshing concerns of the global food and beverage world with the concerns and needs of the public health and research world. He is a thoughtful, energetic forceful speaker."
— Barry Popkin, Distinguished Professor Global Nutrition; Director, UNC Interdisciplinary Obesity Center
|"Mr. Cardello gave our audience energizing commentary on how the food industry can contribute to obesity reduction and prevention, and how advocates can encourage the industry to do so. His emphasis on all sectors – public health, government, community and industry – working together to combat obesity in the southern region of the United States was particularly thoughtful. Most encouraging for the participants, though, was Mr. Cardello’s suggestion that development of a ‘Southern Block’ of states would create a broad and influential body that can change governmental and organizational policies in the region. Mr. Cardello’s content was very beneficial to the audience and helped set the agenda for participants when they left the Southern Obesity Summit."

|"I and the Library Committee cannot thank you enough for providing us with such a provocative and entertaining evening at our author event on March 31st. The feedback was just terrific. Some of the members told me that they can't wait for your next book to come out so we can get you back to the club. They thought the Cardello/Garr tag team fielding questions was the perfect touch. Thanks again for a superlative effort and best of luck with your book and the remainder of your tour engagements."

|"Hank Cardello was an engaging and prepared speaker. He offered a business perspective to the public health obesity epidemic. His presentation on Stuffed: An Insider’s Look at Who's Really Making America Fat, provided a very fresh view on the inter-workings of the food industry. I would welcome him to speak again to the Raleigh District Dietetic Association on the progress he has had on encouraging food industries on taking a more responsible role in the health and well-being of Americans."
— Lindsay Hecht, MS, RD, Raleigh District Dietetic Association President
|"Your talk on working with the food industry was right on target and…your suggestions will no doubt help us get even more partners at the table seeking meaningful solution. You offer a fresh approach as to how to work with and not against the food industry. I would like to commend you for your poise at answering some very hard questions."|
