Speaker

A (Typically) Painful Process, Made (Untypically) Easy

After spending countless hours coordinating events in a previous professional role and currently in a community volunteer role, I know the challenges involved with finding and booking great talent for an event.

In my experience, the quality of the speaker sets the tone for much of the success of a conference or learning event. If the speaker is well-prepared, connects to the audience, and delivers meaningful, relatable content, the event will be a raving success! If not, people leave feeling as though they got less than they paid for.

My hope is that this page will provide you with what you need to make the best choice for you and the people attending your event.

Thank you for dropping in. Thank you for considering me as a speaker. I’m humbled and honored.

A Bit About Me

Most of my professional experience has been in the people development industry, offering corporate training in a more formal classroom setting.

Taking that experience from the classroom to the stage has been one of the most exciting transitions of my life. Being able to dig deep and share what’s on my heart as a mother, wife, business owner and friend allows me to create a lasting connection with my audiences.

My typical audiences are women’s groups, leadership teams, and rural communities. I speak about living B.I.G. which gives audiences an inspirational roadmap to follow to better love themselves, their people, and their lives, regardless of their circumstances.

We’ll laugh a lot, we may cry a little, and we’re certain to connect.

My Commitment

Select me as your speaker, and I will give you 100% of my energy and attention. I will act as a connector for your event, engaging audience members, and helping to create a welcoming environment. Your success is my success.

What Others Are Saying

Rebecca’s insightful presentation was exactly what I needed to hear to steer my small, rural business in the right direction. I left feeling motivated, proud of what I have accomplished and couldn’t wait to dig deeper into the delicious tidbits of important business information served with a heaping side of humor!

I am a self-employed, massage therapist in the same small town I grew up in, and I had the opportunity to recently hear Rebecca speak at a gathering for women in a neighboring community. I went ready for motivation, but didn’t expect that her talk would affect me on so many levels. Her words made me evaluate different aspects of my life and inspired me to want to grow as a mother, wife, friend, business owner and just me as an individual…..for myself. I believe we have so many benefits when it comes to small town living, but I think every little dot on the map could use a push to dream big and to open their minds to growth and change which will only secure the unity and the economic future of our safe haven small town living. Thanks Rebecca for helping me take the time to do some evaluating of where I’ve been and where I hope to go from here on my journey!!

After a year of considerable challenge and change, we invited Rebecca Undem to address our leadership team. Her presentation focused our team on setting their goals, especially when the journey is difficult. I recommend Rebecca’s presentation without hesitation to any group that needs the extra boost to take the next step in their journey.

Rebecca’s message was heartfelt, entertaining and fun. Rebecca’s style of using humor and passionate storytelling moved CCRI’s team members from laughter to tears. Her message awakened their soul. Leaving the event team members truly felt inspired to live each day to the fullest.

Thank you Rebecca for reminding us perseverance is as much as a habit as failing is, and that adversity and change can become opportunities with positive outcomes.

I had the pleasure of hiring Rebecca Undem as a presenter for our Ignite Forums – a speaker series for women business owners and leaders. The Women’s Business Alliance provides resources for business growth to the region’s women entrepreneurs. We sought speakers for the Ignite series who could provide perspectives that spark fresh thoughts and translate into growth and change – both personally and professionally. Our goals are to strengthen leadership competencies and provide a platform for connections.

The information, resources and videos on Rebecca’s website (www. rebeccaundem.com) indicated she was the type of speaker we were looking for. Our clients live and own businesses in rural northern Minnesota and her message of not letting size of place limit potential held real value.

From my first conversation with Rebecca – through her second presentation – she clearly understood our audiences and presented program content that appealed to them. The size of our geographical coverage area is large – so Rebecca agreed to give two back-to-back presentations in two communities. At the end of both events every evaluation for Rebecca showed a rating of excellent or very good!

In addition to an energetic, fun and engaging talk, Rebecca was an active forum participant – making herself available to women with questions or comments during the time designated for networking. It was obvious that she connected with our clients and enjoyed speaking with them as much as they appreciated the insights she provided.

I highly recommend Rebecca Undem as a presenter. The success of our forum was directly related to the quality of her presentation and the valuable message she delivered to our audience of women leaders and entrepreneurs. It was a pleasure to work with Rebecca and I’m happy to speak with anyone regarding our event and her contributions.
