||Emmy M. Vickers
Chief Executive Officer / National Trainer & Key Note Speaker
2009 EPNET Legacy Female Entrepreneur
of the Year Award recipient
Emmy M. Vickers is a nationally acclaimed speaker
and charismatic business leader who gains joy
from inspiring and teaching others how to use
their most effective communications technology…the
mouth…to grow a more productive business
network. All too often, companies of all sizes
neglect to embrace the power of networking as
an effective marketing and productivity tool.
Sometimes the neglect stems from a lack of knowledge;
from fear, or sometimes from being bogged down
in the daily details of operating a business.
After years of running EMVI
Services, LLC (a
business solutions and graphic design company)
and four years of public speaking, Emmy found
business executives throughout the country
to raise their net worth through building their
net work.™” Hence, June 2008 Emmy
founded Emmy Vickers Enterprises.
Emmy has trained thousands of entrepreneurs, company executives and sales professionals since 2004 from MD, DC, VA,
CA, to Las Vegas and Clearwater, FL. She is the
author of the highly anticipated word of mouth
book “Out of the Box and Into the Black,” which
is set to be released in 2009.
In addition, Emmy developed and created what
she calls the “DPF 6 Step Process for Attending
Any Networking Event” which assists business
professionals to "raise their net worth through
strategically building their net work™."
Emmy is now enjoying the extreme privilege of
being coached by and working directly with some
of the greatest business minds of our time including
Bartmann Enterprises, Dan Vega of Vega
Bob Yates of Circle
of Champions, and author
Emmy practices what she teaches in her workshops.
In fact, using her love for helping others, Emmy
overcame her own shyness through being an Ambassador,
and then Sr. Director of Business Network International
(BNI) for Prince Georges County, Maryland, the
largest international word-of-mouth business
referral organization. As of June 2008, Emmy
accepted the role of Special Liaison/Regional
Trainer for BNI Maryland/DC, where she helps
professionals build quality working relationships
that grow businesses.
Emmy believes that business should be fun and
that individuals should be empowered to make
decisions over their work. This is why, through
coaching and at her workshops, you become the
ringmaster while learning how to network with
pizzazz in a non-threatening, compassionate,
and nourishing environment. Emmy believes in
thinking BIG, seeing beyond what is in front
of you and helping as many people as you can.
Emmy guides her audience to dream big, envision,
and take action! She motivates, inspires and
Emmy’s two-fold dream in the next 5 years
(beginning 2009) is to form dynamic partnerships;
touch and impact the lives of 300,000 people
around the world through teaching them how to
improve the way they build word of mouth networks
both personally and professionally. In addition,
help over 100,000 abandoned and starving children
throughout the United States. Emmy is also a
long time events volunteer for the Make-A-Wish
Foundation of the Mid-Atlantic, Inc., where she
would like to help hundreds of children’s
dreams come true through large contributions.
