Rebecca is a nationally renowned speaker who has travelled the world training candidates to run for elected office. Her most popular speaking topics include:

Failing Forward: How to Lose an Election Without Losing Yourself: Most candidates don’t win their elections the first time they run. Yet many don’t think about (or plan for) a potential loss.

  • Create a post-election self care plan (whether you win or lose)
  • Stay in touch with donors and supporters
