“Mellissa Rempfer spoke to Fremont Rotary recently. Her presentation was incredibly informative, inspiring and motivating. Combining knowledge, humor and strategic thinking, Mellissa’s half hour talk passed way too quickly. We all came away with a renewed sense of how to go forth with our fund-raising goals. Do not fail to recruit Mellissa for your future speaking needs. You won’t be sorry that you did!”

“Since our Rotary club is always looking for fundraising ideas, Mellissa’s presentation highlighted the importance of a heartfelt connection as opposed to “just show me the money”. She gave us some excellent tips on the art of raising money by connecting with the emotional side of potential donors.”

Mellissa did an especially nice job getting an important and difficult message about money out to everyone in the room and did it with the perfect blend of charm and humor!”
~ Amy Dawson, ABWA, Bay Area Business Express Network

“We enjoyed Mellissa’s presentation, and I believe that we took away several good ideas for our Club fundraising. Her power point was well-done and accentuated her speaking points. She was well-prepared, quite congenial and stayed after the presentation to answer questions. I definitely can recommend her as a speaker.”
