Lillian Lambert visited Freddie Mac to discuss her road to success. Many of us left the presentation extremely inspired by her story. I was reminded of how often successful people overcome bumps along the path to success.

Lillian Lambert served as the featured speaker for the Walker’s Legacy: A Women in Business Lecture Series in Washington, DC and was remarkable. Her knowledge of business, her passion and her commitment were infectious to the audience and were complimented by a “down-to-earthness” that resonated well with all who attended.

We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from her session and many of the women felt connected to Lambert’s story of perseverance. She was a motivation to all who attended and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to inspire and inform.

The responses I received when Lillian spoke to the luncheon my organization hosted, were almost always preceded with, “WOW!” Lillian gave a presentation that informed but most of all inspired each person in the room.

One attendee said, “The luncheons have always been phenomenal, but this one was hit out of the park.” We can hardly wait until her book comes out to read even more about the life of this extraordinary woman. She truly is a role model for all of us.

My definition of a first rate speaker is one who is easy to listen to, witty and very wise. Lillian Lambert is such a speaker. Thanks to education, courage and the blessing of time, Lillian shared her road to success. I could tell from the eyes of our audience how engaged they were, how quickly the time flew and how much they enjoyed her stories.

You have devoted a lifetime to building relationships and have made a tremendous difference in the lives of many. Thank you for your words of wisdom, your enlightenment and your encouragement. We were certainly inspired and went away with the knowledge and the fortitude to strive to reach far beyond our highest dreams.

Her authentic style and inspiring story made for yet another successful RMA luncheon.
