Lawrence Watkins Gives Speaking Tips for Huffington Post
Great Black Speakers name is getting around and Huffington Post asked me to contribute to their piece about breaking into the public speaking market and grow your brand.

In exchange for you speaking, the organization will need to provide you with a professional recording of your speech. While at the event, record video testimonials from the audience on your phone. A quality demo video and testimonials will take you a long way in nabbing other engagements that are paid.”
A question to event planners. What do you look for when you are booking a speaker for an engagement?

"I called several companies and got promises for information on speakers. GBS was the first company who delivered without a return phone call. I was impressed by the level of professionalism and the willingness they offered to help us in selecting a speaker who could fit our corporate needs. Turnaround time for answers and documents was never more than 24 hours."
