Consumer Advocate, Author, TV Host & Environmental Activist

Erin Brockovich is an American legal clerk, consumer advocate, and environmental activist, who, despite her lack of education in the law, was instrumental in building a case against the Pacific Gas and Electric Company of California in 1993. Her successful lawsuit was the subject of a 2000 film, Erin Brockovich, which starred Julia Roberts. Since then, Brockovich has become a media personality as well, hosting the TV series "Challenge America with Erin Brockovich" on ABC and "Final Justice" on Zone Reality. She is the president of Brockovich Research & Consulting.

Brockovich had a more extensive role in the 2012 documentary "Last Call at the Oasis", which focused on not only water pollution but also the overall state of water scarcity as it relates to water policy in the United States.

Speech Topics


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. Take stock, not in what you have, but in who you are. 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.
