Keynote Topics: “No Free Lunch in Sales: Corporate Influence in American Medicine”, Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher, Drugging our Children to Death
Events: Health fairs and seminars, corporate sales meetings, fundraisers, professional conventions, medical conferences and workshops
Audiences: Gwen frequently speaks to groups of professionals, entrepreneurs, health and human rights activists, and the general public. Her message is a poignant, if sometimes unpopular, wake up call to the current dangers existing in our healthcare system. Gwen advocates that it is a social responsibility to protect our children from greedy corporations and their corrupt agendas, and inspires others to become proactively involved in their health and mental wellness. An enthralling storyteller with a “shoot-from-the-hip” style of delivery, Gwen moves her audiences to laughter as well as tears with her anecdotal stories from her life as a 15-year-veteran Pharma rep.
Our Association wanted a thought provoking keynote speaker who would energize our conference by challenging the traditional beliefs of pharmacy professionals regarding overuse of pharmaceuticals. Gwen’s message was provocative and passionate and supported with solid clinical evidence. She resonated strongly with many of our attendees, was not embraced by others and yet was often interrupted by spontaneous applause. Even if you don’t agree with everything Gwen says, you are moved by the power of her knowledge, conviction and experience.

Joining The Wealth Masters lineup of health experts, Gwen Olsen grabbed our attention with shocking revelations about the dark side of the pharmaceutical industry. Gwen’s philosophy is that we can’t be at our best mentally, physically or spiritually when we’re under the control of dangerous toxins. Expanding on secrets revealed in her book, Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher, Gwen presented a convincing argument that our current system is less about curing illness and more about maximizing profits by keeping as many people as possible dependent on expensive (and often unnecessary) medications. When companies can’t sell enough pills for their intended use, Gwen described the sinister practice of prescribing “off label” uses of the drugs for patients who may be unaware of their dangerous health risks. Although her message is serious and urgent, she managed to frame it in a positive and heartwarming call to action that challenged us all to make more informed choices and reclaim our personal power over our health and well-being.

Wow! Gwen Olsen is a dynamic speaker who captivates her entire audience. Listening to her speak as a former phamaceutical sales representative and hearing that the companies care more about the bottom line than the health and well-being of the customers, was both enlightening and frightening. It’s apparent that neither the regulators, nor the pharmaceutical compies nor most family physicians, are concerned about how prescription drugs really impact the general public. Gwen related how prescription drugs are being treated like an up sale. Instead of being super sized in the restaurant world, the drug companies are using our doctors to say, “Would you like Prozac with that?” She also showed the effects that certain prescription drugs have on our young people and the drastic consequences that are the result. She is a woman on a mission. Everyone needs to hear her story and then help her turn this situation around!

The Chicago Health Freedom Expo was pleased to have Gwen Olsen join the lecture series this year. She was part of the Family Health Panel which covered the broad range topic of the over drugging of America. Additionally she lectured about her personal experience as a former insider in the pharmaceutical industry that resulted in her becoming a health activist. She brought fresh insight to the growing problem of encouraged abuse of pharmaceutical drugs in America. As a former top performer in the industry, she was privy to the long term strategic planning of Big Pharmato create a population that is dependent on prescription drugs for a lifetime. Her personal insights coupled with her insider knowledge held the audiences spell bound. It is rare that an individual has the courage to speak out in support of their principles in the face of eminent dire financial consequences. Gwen is that rare person. What she shares gives others hope and sheds light on a new way of living without a dependency on drugs.
“Gwen Olsen was a keynote speaker at our recent WAVE event attended by 1,300 people. Her message was compelling, timely and very well received.
She was one of the highest ranked speakers at our event (out of 35 speakers), and I strongly recommend her for a speaking engagement if you are speaking the truth to a rational approach to health care.”
Dr Brian Kelly, President – Life Chiropractic College West
“Gwen Olsen is a breath of fresh air in the truths she shares and in her relentless fight to curb prescription drug abuse. Her knowledge base is astounding; she’s done her homework and her courage in sharing the truths most manage to avoid or are completely oblivious to is way beyond admirable. Gwen’s presentation as the keynote speaker during our “Overdosed America” community awareness event in San Ramon, CA earlier this year was highly impactful. Those who attended were given a huge wakeup call about not only how we have become a “pill for every ill” society, but most importantly, what we can do individually to keep ourselves and our families safe from medications that are having a devastating impact on every community in America”.
