The April issue of Speakers Magazine is out online and the printed copies will be distributed to all attendees at the two-day “Discover Your Power Voice” annual speakers event hosted by Les Brown in Deerfield Beach, Florida. In addition, Speakers Magazine publisher and PR coach, Pam Perry will be onsite doing podcasts, live-stream videos and real-time social media updates.
Readers of the magazine, which is the official magazine of the Black Speakers Network, can download the issue for free from the website at www.speakersmagazine.net. According to Perry, the magazine is a vehicle that “feeds and features speakers.”
“Just about every speaker in America aspires to have a speaking career like Les. He is the iconic successful motivational speaker – who happens to be African American. With him on our cover and being at his event is the reason why we started the magazine – to inspire other African American speakers, publish monthly articles about the trade and provide a behind-the-scenes seat via social media of all the cover-story events we hand select,” said Perry.
Readers and followers of Speakers magazine are privy to unique content, upcoming events and fresh, dynamic speakers not often covered by traditional media.
“Being in the public relations field for more than two decades, I see how competitive it is for speakers to get press. Typically, the media likes to cover their favorites and it makes it hard for new people to break into the media. My vision for the magazine is to give those amazing new voices a vehicle to attract speaking gigs as well as other media opportunities. Many of our speakers have done that. They’ve leveraged our magazine to get into places they would not have otherwise. That was the plan. To get them in front of as many eyes and ears as possible – online and offline,” said Perry.
Last month, Speakers Magazine was at the Win Rock & Rule Women’s Empowerment event in Newark, New Jersey hosted by March cover story, Dee C. Marshall. The publisher’s page of this issue recaps pictures from that sold out event – which was sponsored by Prudential.
