July Luncheon – Desiree Young

The next American Business Women’s Association (ABWA) luncheon will be held on July 14, 2016  from 11:00 -1:00 at Ralph Brennan’s Heritage Grill (111 Veterans Blvd), and our guest speaker will be Desiree Young of VentureWalk Business Partners. Desiree helps small businesses gain clarity and grown clients. In her July talk, she will present, “Your Fortune is in Your Follow-Up: Simple Steps to Cure Follow-Up Failure and Close More Sales.”

As a business owner or professional, you’ve learned how to respond to hot leads, the problem is that only 3-5% of the people that contact you is ready to buy, today. In this seminar Desiree H. Young of VentureWalk discusses what to do after you pitch, how to stop interested prospects from falling through the cracks and when to approach them again without feeling like a pest.

Desiree has advised businesses in over 27 different industries, helped to raise over $5.9M in funding and trained thousands of business owners, professionals and organization leaders on how to develop profitable enterprises that honor their values and serve their community. Desiree is passionate about education and has created proprietary programs like her Business GPS Action Circle and Pitch-to-Win System. She’s also developed and delivered programs for Capital One Bank’s Getting Down to Business and Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programs to enable businesses to get clarity, grow clients and gain control while becoming the best marketer and manager of their messages. She earned her engineering degree from Boston University and an MBA in entrepreneurship and marketing from Southern Methodist University and ESADE in Barcelona, Spain. Desiree believes that entrepreneurship is the path that leads to personal and financial freedom and is on a mission to empower people, worldwide, to improve their quality of life and work through profitable entrepreneurship both on the job and off.
