Event Planner Testimonials 2018-06-10T23:38:01+00:00

The following testimonials are from Event Planners who hired Becky Olson, motivational humorist, to speak at their events. Most of these quotes speak to her use of humor as well as to her inspiration and impact on the audience.


“We had a wonderful experience working with Becky Olson. She and her agent were easy to communicate with and very professional. Becky checked in often in the time leading up to our event to review her talk, our audience demographics, our goals for the program, etc. so that we would be satisfied. And we were. Becky’s talk was engaging, vulnerable, and humourous. She really struck a chord with many of our survivors. She wrapped the event in a very touching way that really unified the whole audience and left them feeling connected and supported.”

“Becky has been our speaker 3 times over the last 12 years…the audience has loved her each time.  She is amazing and even though she interjects humor… Her zest for life is evident as she relates how she coped and things she did to get through it all.”

“Becky has an inspiring and uplifting story to tell and does it with grace and humor. She was a perfect speaker for our annual Komen Houston Survivor Party!”

Annie Stafford
Susan G. Komen for the Cure – Houston, TX

“…Becky created the perfect ambiance at this event by sharing her powerful story. The feedback I received from our constituents has been nothing but positive from the events Becky attended. (We loved her so much we brought her back for the second event.) They appreciated her lighthearted humor and said it was just the kind of speaker they wanted to hear. My experience with Becky is that she is easy to work with, prompt in returning calls and e-mails and is very organized. I received her presentation and a/v requirements in ample time to coordinate with the event venue. She came in a day ahead and showed up at the venue in plenty of time to do a sound-check and get her program materials set up. I have enjoyed getting to know Becky and find her to be very kind. Her incredible personality makes her a pleasure to be around.”

“Becky spoke twice at the National Consortium of Breast Center’s 2014 convention in Las Vegas. She has been invited back for next year’s convention. She weaves words into a mixture of laughter, sensitivity and wisdom. You will laugh, cry, and then laugh again as you feel intimately pulled into Becky’s world. You will grow as a human being to hear her speak. Add to that mixture, now that I have heard her sing, and fall in love with her all over again! I highly recommend Becky for any speaking engagement designed to empower women and men.”

“We knew when we asked Becky to speak at our Women’s Series event that she would bring something special to the evening, but we were not prepared for just how amazing she would be. Her message truly touched every person in attendance, both men and women. …She had me laughing so hard I was crying….To put it simply, Becky was magical.”
