Rebekka Mikkola is a CEO, speaker and wellness expert who is at the forefront of a rapidly expanding sector. Alongside her co-founder, she has grown Nordic Cuddle into a recognised and admired brand, with press features in major outlets spanning over 20 countries.
She is often the expert that media outlets such as Sky News, The Guardian, GQ Magazine, BBC Radio 4, Business Insider, Marie Claire, Thrive Global and many others go to for comments about platonic touch, wellness and entrepreneurship.
Rebekka is an accomplished speaker with a natural flair for engaging audiences on a range of subjects and utilises her broad experience to give relatable examples and practicable advice. Her first TEDx talk was about how ‘Cuddling can make us better human beings’.
She has since presented at Samsung KX, Snapchat HQ, Sunderland University in London, Warwick University’s Tech Startup Day and the first ever Health Optimisation Summit at the London Olympia alongside keynote speakers such as John Gray and Dave Asprey. Rebekka has also been a panel guest for EWD’s Big Vision Conference. Her earlier talks about entrepreneurship and lean leadership are subjects that Rebekka has a deep understanding of, thanks to her role at Nordic Cuddle.
