BROCKOVICH |Erin Brockovich
Author, TV Host, Consumer Advocate
Say the name “Erin Brockovich” and you think, strong, tough, stubborn and sexy. You also might think of the Oscar-winning film by the same name. A rebel, a fighter, someone who is an advocate for truth–that’s Erin.
Erin’s own story as a legal researcher whose dogged persistence was the force behind the largest medical settlement lawsuit in history, became a powerhouse film and made Erin a household name. Julia Roberts won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Erin, who is every bit as tenacious and gutsy as the film depicted.
SPEECH TITLES AND DESCRIPTIONS
RAM: Realization, Assessment, and Motivation
Erin lives according to the guidelines she likes to call RAM. The R is for Realization. She believes you have to realize who YOU are, good and bad, before you can begin to know where you are going. A is for Assessment. You have to take stock in what you have. Look at your skills, weakness, strengths and applying traits where they need to be and let go of the bad ones. M is for Motivation. It’s hard to stay motivated in the world today and motivation is the steam that keeps us going. Motivation is about taking time for self renewal. We all need our batteries charged yet never take the time to do it and then just burn out.
Erin’s ability to continue the good work she has done on behalf of other people is due to her belief in the above and she shares her story and tools for success with audiences nationwide.
The Power of One
Erin Brockovich is one of those rare individuals whose own true story has become part of our public consciousness. Seen by millions as a symbol of American justice and the importance of fighting for the truth, Brockovich continues to speak out on behalf of those who can’t. After uncovering a 30-year long history of poisoning the groundwater in Hinkley, CA by PG&E, Brockovich dug in and didn’t give up until she had exposed the truth—and had gotten justice for its victims. She truly is proof that one person can make a difference, and she believes that everyone—in their own way—can do the same.
