What our clients say
“Marine Marketers of America was seeking a professional speaker for our bi-annual national conference and membership meeting to present on the topic of luxury marketing. After researching a variety of options, we were thrilled to connect with Christopher P. Ramey and engaged him to customize a keynote for our audience of leading marine marketing professionals.
In my 35+ year career (which includes booking marketing speakers for numerous marine manufacturers, organizations and associations), I have to say my experience in working with Chris was among the very best. He was highly responsive to my questions and directives. He also invested time to research and better understand my audience, along with the consumers we serve. In addition, Chris did an outstanding job of sharing compelling facts, coupled with strategies, that resonated with our audience. He did a terrific job of engaging our members throughout the presentation, keeping it fast-paced and upbeat. He also successfully integrated our event sponsors in a clever, non-commercial way that was cool and scored big points!
However, the real test of a speaker’s success is whether they impart valued techniques, tips, strategies or tactics that can be deployed by the audience post-presentation. I asked our association members from the podium if they had at least three to five solid takeaways they could immediately apply to their business and every hand in the room shot up, followed by a rousing round of applause.
Thanks, Chris, for doing such an awesome job and for sharing your expertise with our association. We all learned a lot in a short amount of time … and I would fully expect we will invite you back for more in the days ahead. You’re a Rockstar!”

“Chris is an amazing charismatic speaker. He is a subject matter expert in luxury marketing and strategies who can deliver powerful speeches to small and large audiences. I have seen Chris in action where he got over 400 people on their feet playing and participating. He is a magician with audiences and his sense of humor is second to none. I highly recommend Chris to organizations who need a boost in their premium positioning, in their luxury branding and who need a great speaker to wake up spirits.“

“My name is Jon Spector and I am the Strategic Board Chairman/President of Dornbracht Americas. Dornbracht is a world-recognized leader in the manufacture and brand marketing of luxury bath fittings and accessories. I have recently attended Chris(topher) Ramey’s presentation on “Selling Luxury in the New Economy”. Having been in the luxury industry for over 25 years, I have worked with numerous people who each have their own idea as to luxury and affluence, and how to communicate with and sell to this target group in an effective way. Unfortunately, many miss the mark. Chris does (hit the mark), and does so in an energetic, passionate and dynamic fashion. His seminar defined clearly this select consumer, their perspectives, their wants and their needs. I found the presentation to be a brilliant combination of statistics, insight and interaction that resulted in a learning experience that was well-worth my time and attention. I highly recommend Chris as not only a speaker, but as a facilitator for the audience so they may absorb the information presented and to open their minds to the new world we all face today.”

“When I became president of the SMA, I suggested Chris as our keynote speaker for our biggest event ever, our 30th anniversary conference in Santa Fe. Chris delivered. He’s got energy, inspiration and insight that people will act on. What’s more, he consulted with me in the months before the event to make sure he understood our association’s constituency thoroughly.
I heard Chris speak at luxury design events I had attended in the past. In every case he was highly inspiring, with hard data to back up his message. In Santa Fe he was able to motivate our people and inspire them to new aspirations in their careers and businesses. Myself included.
Stairbuilders & Manufacturers Association (SMA)
Recently I had the opportunity to hear Chris conduct the keynote speech at the Stairbuilders and Manufacturer’s Association annual conference. Chris is full of insights on how the affluent members of society make purchases and in one hour offered actionable tips that participants could implement immediately.
During the weekend conference I had the opportunity to speak with Chris 1:1 several times. Chris is funny, interesting and knowledgeable but most of all – he is genuine and a man of integrity. My 14 year old daughter was with me and he was able to speak with her and relate with her as well as he was able to relate to a master craftsperson who was attending the conference. If you are working to reach clients in today’s internet/social/mobile world with luxury in home items that cost in the high 5, 6 or even 7 digits – I recommend that you consult with Chris or have him speak at your event.
Thank you for your wonderful presentation… Your insights were great and I am happy that I was able to listen to you speak and take something away from your presentation. Again thank you.”
