In the second decade she founded and led International Speakers Bureau; Recognized by Sprint as #1 Small Business in America, along with Bank One’s Top Female Entrepreneur in the United States. Her expertise included representation of international leaders, such as President George Bush; business leaders, such as Sir Richard Branson; and global thought leaders, such as John Kotter. Ms. Lemmons-Poscente also lent her talents to international board positions with Young Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) and Young President’s Organization (YPO).
Blending into the third decade, Ms. Lemmons-Poscente scaled both her talents and her businesses. Her networks surrounding corporate development, speaking, books, television and intellectual property, opened the door for her to co-found ISB New Media; a fully integrated brand strategy and representation firm. Then, by connecting extraordinary people, leading edge business models with financial opportunity, she inevitably co-created the first global leadership platform which connects member to member CEO’s with communities, capital and commerce. She has served on the board of The SMU Doak Walker Sports Lecture Series at Southern Methodist University, and is presently a member of the World President’s Organization’s Maverick Chapter.
