We started Latino Speakers Bureau 6 years ago, in response to the frustration about the type of media coverage that our community was getting. Our Hispanic success stories, who are voices of hope and inspiration are still not getting the visiblity they deserve and our keynote speakers are often overlooked. Best selling authors, professionals overcoming the odds, personal journeys of success...when will we hear them with the same frequency of "drive-bys" or immigration issues? Joachim de Posada, a Latino motivational speaker has sold 2 million books. How many times do you hear his name mentioned? He is just an example. Showcase our successes in your own conversations. We need a grassroots success movement. It's overdue.
