"Speak Up. Even If Your Voice Shakes"
I live for dialogue - raw, real and authentic. I am deeply passionate about and well-versed in a range of topics including grief, loss, death, spirituality, race + diversity, burnout, women's issues, entrepreneurship, law and so much more!
If you're looking for a speaker for your event, I would love to jam out on ways we can work together. Hit me up below.
Praise from Past Speaking EventS...
"I got to know Rachel Ricketts through the Tight Club Town Hall event in honour of International Women's Day, where she was a panelist. As a group, we discussed privilege, gender, race, art and politics. Rachel made me think about intersectionality and white privilege in a way that I hadn't considered. It changed my perspective and left an indelible impression...
Each time I hear her speak, I feel as though she pulls out a little part of me that I consciously or unconsciously suppress..."
- Kate Lollar, Brand Manager @ AG Hair Re Townhall In Honour of Int'l Women's Day @ Tight Club Athletics
"It was such a beautiful night! I am so grateful for [Rachel] coming and holding the space for all of us. I know that it created a shift inside my heart and the tools I learned I feel like I can go out and spread this conversation in a more understanding and confident way."
- Courtney Thomas, Creator, Bodhi Studios Re the Time to Talks on Race + Racism Event @ Bodhi Studios
"I'm always on the hunt for the most powerful voices in town, who can tell a story from the gut and keep a room in the palm of their hand...Rachel came recommended by a number of contacts, namely for her work in the grief space and her dynamic personality. At the [Record Club] event Rachel quieted a full venue of 20 - 40 something city-dwellers, people leaned into the stage to hear her next word as she shared her powerful story of losing her mother, and bringing in larger themes of her work...
Multiple people came up to me after the event asking how to connect with her and her work, everyone in the room could feel her radical openness, understanding of story and real desire to impact community. I'm on the edge of my seat to see what she is up to next."
