Erin Brockovich (Virtual Keynote)

A formerly-unknown legal researcher who became a 20th century icon overnight thanks to Julia Roberts’ Oscar-winning tour de force, ERIN BROCKOVICH’s dogged persistence was the impelling force behind the largest medical settlement lawsuit in history. A modern-day “David” who loves a good brawl with today’s “Goliaths,” Erin thrives on being the voice for those who don’t know how to yell. She is a rebel, an environmentalist, and a mother. She is also a strong believer that it only takes one person to make a difference. And so in engagements around the world, Erin uses her life experiences to motivate and bring inspiration to audiences, providing lessons on her four steps to success, her motto for resilience and perseverance, and advocacy for causes that matter.

Since her investigation uncovered that Pacific Gas & Electric had been poisoning the small town of Hinkley’s Water for over 30 years– leading to the largest direct action lawsuit of its kind that resulted in the utility giant paying $333 million in damages to more than 600 Hinkley residents– Erin has leant her voice to other key issues such as the Flint Water Crisis. Celebrated for her charisma and insight, at engagements she receives out of this world reviews, such as: “Erin was wonderful! She is an exceptional speaker who spoke with heart” (Benton Area Chamber of Commerce); “We received such great feedback… our launch was a huge success!” (LegalTube); “She was a spectacular hit! Not only is she so down to earth and lovely, her talk was so inspirational! We think that everyone who heard will be adopting her mantra of ‘sticktoitiveness.'”
