This is the number #1 asked question by potential GBS speakers. The time frame varies widely from when a speaker joins until the time that they get their first speaking engagement. We've seen some get booked in 2 weeks while others may take 2 years. Our goal is to make sure that every organization knows about Great Black Speakers and has interest in booking a speaker through our service. Since we very rarely market individual speakers, there is a level of internal competition among our speakers. Therefore, it is important that you have a complete profile and you do everything in your power to continue to grow your name recognition.
