Hi, my name is Rebekah Lambert.
With over seven years as a product manager and five years as a business manager in Australia and New Zealand, I’ve had the privilege of working with big names in IT and entertainment at the agency level. Now that I’m a veteran freelancer, I use this experience to improve organisational relationships with the freelance scene.
I started freelancing in 2010. In my role as a freelance virtual marketer, strategist, content writer, community creator, and business coach at Unashamedly Creative, I collaborate with startups, organisations, small businesses and micro businesses to find their strengths and amplify their stories. I use storytelling to foster empathy and understanding across diverse audiences.
Plumbing the depths is what I am good at. This includes a specialisation in end-of-life, mental health, trauma-informed, and workaholism.
In 2012, I founded the Freelance Jungle, a thriving community that supports over 6700 freelancers across Australia and New Zealand. Through this grassroots community, I advocate for freelance recognition, workplace inclusion, and mental health awareness within the freelance community, earning recognition such as the 2019 Wayahead Workplace Wellbeing Award.
Drawing on my experience as a freelancer and freelance advocate, I also help companies make the most of Australian and New Zealand freelancers. I’m here to help organizations tap into the power of freelance talent by connecting them with skilled professionals and showing them how to create workplaces that are freelance-friendly.
Driven by a passion for social impact and community engagement, I’ve spearheaded various initiatives and campaigns, including virtual festivals and education programs aimed at supporting freelancers thrive during challenging times.
