Rachel Paige Goldstein on That's Total Mom Sense with Kanika Chadda-Gupta

Sure it seems like we won’t be assembling for conferences, summits, or concerts anytime soon, but know that this is a blip in time. We will enjoy events and human connection again. I got a chance to interview Rachel Paige Goldstein prior to the pandemic.

An event production veteran with over 25 years of experience, Rachel is a Partner and Executive Vice President of Matter Unlimited. She is a masterful facilitator and connector of people, using her diverse background and perspective as a New York City native to cultivate experiences and opportunities for her clients. In her former role, as the Founder and CEO of Agent of Change Events, Rachel inspired global change by producing live events that created impact by leading strategic buzz strategy campaigns that celebrated today’s most influential voices. She curated dynamic panels and high-profile speaker engagements as well as led influencer outreach campaigns for a variety of mission-driven clients which have achieved over 1 billion social media imprints. The Agent of Change Events fundraising events reached over $70 million for various initiatives related to women’s rights, veterans’ issues, political advocacy, peace initiatives, social justice, and the arts. Additionally, Rachel uses her 300 hour yoga certification and mindfulness certifications to create dynamic wellness event experiences.

Rachel was a strategic advisor of the inaugural Women’s March on Washington and is a senior advisor at the Milken Institute. She is the co-founder and executive producer of the annual Dot2Dot Summit, a movement to convene powerful young leaders to inspire and challenge their generation to take ownership and action. Rachel proudly sits on the Advisory Board of the Rise of Broken Women and the Holistic Life Foundation.
