When it comes to life, effective communication is one of the most essential skills that individuals should master. What do Malcolm X, Madame C.J. Walker, Marcus Garvey, Steve Jobs, and Oprah Winfrey all have in common? They are all excellent speakers who knew how to communicate their ideas clearly, empathetically, and with a passion to connect with their audience. The difference? They all were using their gift of speaking for different ends ranging from growing an empire to recruiting for a revolution.

Your goal may not be any of these things, but one truth stays the same. To gain the influence necessary to shape the world around you, you MUST learn how to communicate. Speaking is the number one form of communication for humanity. The Great Pro Speakers class was created for the following people:

  • Leaders who are passionate about empowering, inspiring, and helping others to succeed through their message.
  • People that want to create an additional source of income to build wealth for their families.
  • Corporate & academic professionals who want to increase visibility and establish credibility to attract new opportunities.
  • Individuals unsatisfied with their current employment and want to escape to a life of greater freedom & independence.
  • Legacy builders who wish to leave a brand family name for future generations to use.
  • Entrepreneurs who need to communicate their vision to grow their companies.

Over the span of 10 weeks, we are going to teach you the strategies and tactics necessary to make professional speaking work for you in your life. Specifically, here is what we're going to cover:

  1. The Biggest Dreamkiller: How to Overcome Fear and Gain the Confidence that You Need to Become a Great Public Communicator.

The Great Pro Speakers Masterclass is taught by two friends who have built careers in the speaking industry in two very different ways. Lawrence Watkins is the Founder of Great Black Speakers, the #1 African-American owned speakers' bureau in the nation. Al Duncan has built a multiple 6-figure per year business by leveraging his expertise in soft skills for youth development. Combined, they have close to 30 years of experience in the speaking industry and are excited to share their knowledge with The Black Business School community.

Usually, this class is valued at $499, but we have a special holiday offer of 60% off for those who join this 10-week masterclass before December 26, 2018. THIS COURSE WILL NEVER BE OFFERED AT THIS PRICE AGAIN. As this is the first run-through of the content to the BBS audience, we are temporarily lowering the price to get as much feedback from you as possible as well as to provide initial support to grow your speaking businesses. The instructors have taught this material many times in other venues but wanted to create a course directly relevant to the upliftment of the Black Community.

IMPORTANT: This course is comprised of ten 45 minute to one-hour lectures with Q&A afterward. The course will begin on January 7, 2019 and end on March 11, 2019. The customers of this initial course will also have the ability to shape the future direction of this program as we will eventually build it out to something bigger. This is the ground floor of The Black Business School's expert speaking track.

As an additional bonus to prepare for 2019, we will include immediate access to The Black Keys to Greatness: How to Manage Your Time, Implement Your Strategies, and Achieve Your Goals by Any Means Necessary. As you are building out your professional speaking toolset, time management and productivity are keys to getting everything done with manageable effort. It is excellent information to review before we get started with the Great Pro Speakers Masterclass on Monday, June 7th.

If you are dedicated to influencing the world around you and building a legacy of generational wealth for you and your family, then strongly consider this class. A $199 investment is immediately offset multiple times over with one speaking engagement, new sale, or business opportunity. What do you really have to lose?
