About me as your speaker
I’m an expert in digital entrepreneurship with a uniquely European flair.
I worked my way up through the ranks – from McDonald’s cashier in Denmark to an esteemed expert in digital entrepreneurship.
My strengths lie in my endearing personality, with a knack for innovative and logical problem-solving, conjuring up and executing big ideas, and sharing my ingenious business solutions with clients, students and friends.
My journey hasn’t always been a bed of roses. I’ve travelled through hell and high water to get to where I am today.
I celebrate these challenges because now I can teach people how to avoid making the mistakes I did.
In 1997 I started my very first business – building computers and websites and online shops for clients.
Some of my early entrepreneurial adventures include coming up with cutting-edge solutions for various companies e.g. developing SMS reminders for Danish bookstores, libraries, and beauty salons.
I even developed a world-wide document scanning service and even a full-service intranet for McDonald’s.
In 2012 I began teaching online marketing at VIA University College, Denmark’s largest university of applied science.
Since then I have been lecturing and teaching at various events and is now based in Malta.
Today, I’m best known for my ability to help aspiring entrepreneurs build successful businesses online and how to design their digital nomad lifestyle.
One of my greatest talents lies in online strategies and company and tax optimization, helping my clients make the most profit from their hard-earned money.
To date, I’ve educated thousands of students and consulted hundreds of clients.
I’ve created the Ricco Mortensen Foundation, a nonprofit educational organization, aimed at teaching as many people as possible how to have entrepreneurial success.
The foundation is offering various educational programmes specially designed for the digital entrepreneur.
In addition to my teachings, I’m an inspiring speaker too!
The often asked questions and answers
After submitting an enquiry, am I guaranteed to have you speak at my event?
While I love saying yes to all speaking engagements, I simply don’t have time to speak at every event. Even though I’d really love to do so! For this reason, there are no guarantees.
What criteria make my request a good fit?
I take my time to consider whether your event is a good fit for me. I typically say yes if an event provides me and the foundation with an ideal opportunity to inspire as many entrepreneurs as we possibly can. Events with fewer than 30 attendees aren’t typically a great match. If a speaking engagement takes places outside of Malta, greater travel time is required which makes it preferable for there to be upwards of 200 attendees. I also take into consideration the main topic of your event, type of audience and travel time.
What’s the price?
The type of event, number of participants and travel costs will determine the price. You will get a price when once I have all the details. Then we sign a contract and the invoice must be paid before the date of the event.
What topics do I talk about?
I’m an expert in digital entrepreneurship, which means I can speak on any topic within the realm of online marketing, digital nomad lifestyle and everything related to entrepreneurship. This includes designing your entrepreneurial life, making money on autopilot, becoming a digital nomad, overcoming challenges and creating solutions when running a business online. I also cover social media, SEO, email marketing, using the right tools, sales funnels, company formation, tax planning and much more!
Send an enquiry
The first step is a phone call or an email exchange where we’ll clarify the topics you want your audience to be presented for.
My task then is to come up with a seminar or lecture that will inspire your audience. The purpose is to have them learn something new as well as and go home with an exciting experience.
A speaking event can be both a source of inspiration and motivation as well as hands-on learning. Consider whether your audience needs motivation or learning. I teach almost daily and I can do both.
I will get back to you within 24 hours after you’ve submitted the form.
