Lynne Golodner, founder of public relations/marketing firm Your People, uses her communications talents as a force for good.
In 2016, she founded One Earth Writing, a nonprofit working to develop confidence in teens through writing, conversation and leadership development. The next year, the U.S. State Department named Golodner a Fulbright Specialist, a professional eligible for grant opportunities as an expert consultant at educational institutions around the country.
Golodner, who is a Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses certificate recipient, the author of eight books and a writing teacher at University of Detroit Mercy, frequently speaks about using stories, relationships and a higher purpose to build one’s business.
“Lynne is a dynamic speaker. She delivers exactly what she promises and does it in a way that is compelling and entertaining,” said Tonya McNeal-Weary, executive director of Michigan Association for Female Entrepreneurs.
Golodner also puts her words into action at work by providing twice yearly retreats and professional development opportunities for her staff, mentoring young professional women and those in high school and college, and going beyond to encourage her clients.
“Lynne helped open my heart and my legal practice and now both are full, growing and booming. Lynne is constantly improving herself and as her client, I benefit from her continuous growth and development,” said Alisa Peskin-Shepherd, principal at Transitions Legal PLLC.
