Meet the Keynote Speaker: Rebecca Fleetwood Hessionkeynote speaker

With nearly three decades of experience, a $35M sales track record, a popular TEDx talk, a best-selling business book, and 15 years in the esteemed President’s Club at FranklinCovey, you could say Rebecca has lived a little! She’s also navigated divorce, co-parenting, raising a couple of amazing humans, including one with ADHD, and launching a business. What she knows to be true is that there’s always head trash, our uniqueness matters most, business is human, and striving and comparison are dream killers.

Rebecca is back by popular demand! We heard you loud and clear, and we are excited for everyone to experience this powerhouse as one of our keynote speakers.
