The Las Vegas Convention Speakers Bureau
announced today the release of "The Power of the Platform: Speakers on Life,"
the newest edition in the anthology series that features messages from some of today's most outstanding speakers. The foreword was written by Tanya Brown
, sister of Nicole Brown Simpson
"It's purely a coincidence that the books are being released during the anniversary week of Nicole Brown Simpson
's murder," said publisher and speakers bureau president Robin Jay
. "I've been working on this book since last November. This is the third edition in the series. Pulling together such an incredible line-up of speakers and experts typically takes between four and six months to complete. When Tanya
said she would like to be a part of the book, I invited her to write the foreword. I'm delighted with her contribution. As a Mental Health Advocate,
Tanya's message is exactly what readers want to know – and her message set the stage for what is a truly remarkable collection of motivation, inspiration, and business how-to."
Jay shared, "Nearly everyone remembers the murder case of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, for which Simpson's ex-husband, O. J. Simpson, was tried and acquitted." Simpson was later found liable in civil court and later arrested and convicted for a robbery in Las Vegas, Nevada. "But," continued Jay, "most people don't realize the wake of trauma that was caused by the murders and subsequent events, particularly for Nicole's and Ron Goldman's families."
While Tanya originally joined forces with her sisters in speaking out against domestic violence, her personal journey took her down a different path – one that led her to become an advocate for positive mental health. Tanya discovered coping skills that would saved her own life after she found herself unable to move forward. She had not only lost her sister, but had also suffered many other personal tragedies.
Jay said, "Having Tanya write the foreword in this very important book will mean so much to so many. Her message is one of victory and I know the readers will identify with her story and come away stronger for having had this glimpse into what it takes to be a survivor."
Tanya Brown's foreword is just the beginning of a book that will transform lives. The professional speakers and coauthors who contributed to "The Power of the Platform: Speakers on Life" offer messages of personal development that will help people to find their passion, develop a greater sense of belief in themselves and others, and there are several chapters that will help readers to achieve greater success in business. This is the third book in the series. The first two, "Speakers on Success"
and "Speakers on Purpose,"
have already sold more than 20,000 copies. All three books are also available in e-book format.
Each of the books feature messages from personal development and success experts Jack Canfield, Brian Tracy,
and Les Brown
. The various editions also feature chapters from other notable professional speakers including Keith Ferrazzi, Marci Shimoff, Tom Stone, Arielle Ford, Dr. Tony Alessandra
, and more.
