The Las Vegas Convention Speakers Bureau
is currently seeking professional speakers – experts in their field – to become coauthors in the THIRD edition of The Power of the Platform: Speakers on Life
. This hugely successful speaker anthology series helps speakers to define themselves as experts while providing them with an outstanding "back-of-the-room" package to offer their audiences.
"It's a shame for any speaker to work without a book. Being published helps speakers to share their message in a deep lasting way," says Robin Jay
, president and founder of the Las Vegas Convention Speakers Bureau
"Any speaker who doesn't have a book is missing out on the very best opportunity to earn more every time they speak. Plus, books can be great negotiating tools…they are an excellent resource for adding value to any speaking contract. Plus, speakers can use their books as a brochure; they make excellent marketing tools"
Jay explains, "Many speakers are overwhelmed at the thought of having to write an entire book. But, it doesn't have to be that hard. I know what a challenge writing a book can be. That is just one of the reasons that I decided to create The Power of the Platform
series of anthologies for professional, speakers, coaches, and trainers"
As owner of a speakers bureau, Jay was in touch with some of the greatest speakers of our time including Jack Canfield, Brian Tracy, Les Brown, Keith Ferrazzi,
and more. She thought, "Why not give other speakers the opportunity to elevate themselves on the shoulders of these speakers by helping them to become coauthors in an outstanding anthology?" She adds, "I knew I could offer tremendous value, make it easier and more affordable than self-publishing, and make it fast. These books come together in less than six months. Traditional publishing deals, which typically take more than a year, can't even come close!
"Unlike most books of this genre, the Las Vegas Convention Speakers Bureau
is committed to helping their speakers and their coauthors succeed. Each coauthor in the series receives the publisher's permission to sell ALL editions of the series' e-books (three, so far) at no additional cost. They can bundle the e-books with the paperbacks. Plus, each coauthor will be featured on the Las Vegas Convention Speakers Bureau website. This exposure is priceless for speakers – whether they are seasoned or just starting out"
As an award-winning author, Jay personally edits the anthologies for comprehension, cohesiveness, and continuity before having them professionally edited for grammar. For those speakers who are already published authors or who have self-published a book, being published along side of nationally recognized speakers will elevate their stature and credibility. This book, along with the e-books, will add tremendous value when bundled along a speaker's signature work. And those speakers, coaches, and consultants who haven't yet been published will be amazed at how easy it is to have an important book they can offer proudly.
The newest book in the anthology series for speakers will be subtitled Speakers on Life
and will encompass all aspects of life: business, home, relationships, overcoming challenges – information and tips that readers and audiences want to know. If you are an expert in your field, this book is your opportunity to invest in yourself and assure greater speaking success.
Space in the next edition is limited. Napoleon Hill said that being decisive was one of the most important characteristics of successful people.
Here is a sample of what some of the Power of the Platform
speakers are saying about their experience as coauthors to this outstanding series and what it has meant to them: "Accepting the invitation to contribute a chapter to Power of the Platform was a great decision for my speaking career. Being positioned alongside a stellar group of speakers/authors has provided both enhanced credibility and profitability. Being a featured author in Power of the Platform is one of the key reasons why my public speaking calendar has soared"

Her personal attention to the editing made a tremendous difference in the way the book flows, offering something for everyone. The feedback I've had from my clients has been phenomenal; everyone agrees it offers tremendous insights, entertaining stories, and lessons we can all use. I love having this book as a marketing tool. Almost immediately, the books have helped me to generate leads for several paid speaking engagements!
