What an inspirational speaker I found in Ramunda Lark Young at the Women’s Business Leadership Conference! The energy that Ramunda exudes is motivating and anyone that has the opportunity to hear her can definitely benefit from listening about her life lessons as well as her creativity that she has developed in being the business woman she is today. What a great speaker!

Thank you for an awesome presentation at our recent Team WIN meeting—everyone is still singing your praises! Your presentation, Building Effective Business Relationships, was timely and on target to help the members of our group be better relationship builders in order to grow their businesses. The practical tips you shared are easy to remember and implement. For me personally, the biggest take away was the concept of “follow-up or fail” – taking the time to follow up with a new connection after an event is crucial to the success of networking! Without that, it’s essentially ineffective. More specifically, I liked your tip about making notes on the back of the business card about where and when you met someone, along with personal details about your connection with them for use later when connecting. Thanks again for a wonderful presentation!

Ramunda is the ultimate connector. She lives and breathes relationship building, which multiplies her impact. By connecting myself and my foundation with power players, she has increased our exposure, helping us move closer to our goal of helping more African-Americans get their seat at the political table.

Even though I considered myself a “connector” already, I received valuable insight and tips from Ramunda Young in her “Networking, It’s Not About You” workshop at the Prince William Chamber Business Academy! Thanks to Ramunda’s valuable networking tip, I’m now much happier to make a few “REAL connections” at an event, rather than work the room” and collect cards. Her techniques certainly contributed to my success but this is not about me! As a keynote speaker and presenter, Ramunda is both engaging and interesting. I highly recommend Ramunda Young for any organization or individual that struggles with success in business networking. I promise you will benefit professionally and personally!

I had the opportunity to speak with Ramunda and interview her for a blog (DMV CEO) that I manage. She was referred to me by a colleague that recommended I connect with her because of all the great things she was doing. After conducting the interview, I could see why. It’s always a gift to the world when someone is able to build a business while simultaneously uplifting and building the community. So often people are constantly looking for what they can get out of a relationship or a situation, but it was evident during the interview Ramunda was focused on giving! It was without a doubt one of my favorite interviews and I appreciate her leadership and the impact she’s having on the world.

I have been an entrepreneur for years and early on I was looking for a new way to expand my business. After sharing my goals with Ramunda, she was able to remove my concerns and crystallize what I wanted in a creating a successful business. She introduced me to a new network of people who became my bridge to immediate results! Working with her has opened by eyes to many solutions that I have overlooked throughout my career. I highly recommend the value she brings to the table.

Ramunda’s seminar was informative from start to finish. She wove her own experience of building authentic relationships throughout by providing valuable tips on how to make those connections. I highly recommend utilizing Ramunda’s expertise for your own personal and professional growth!

Ramunda has created tremendous circle of influential movers and shakers. I’d recently moved to Washington, DC and she invited me to a private networking brunch with people with entrepreneurial spirit. She introduced me to a friend also in the film industry. In three months, I was working as an Assistant Director on a short film that went on to win domestic and international awards. Ramunda has a great network of people from all walks of life. She has the knack for timing and connection and I will always be grateful for her assistance in finding my tribe locally. Her connections are still working today as I move toward my own documentary, “Black Mardi Gras.”
