MasterClass Business Essays For Our Time” is a new book
that has the likes of Conrad Black, CTV News anchor Lisa
LaFlamme, and others singing its praises.
The book was produced by Jim Keating, CEO of Speakers
Forum in Toronto.
Like many businesses around the world, his Leaders Lecture
Series had to go dark as the pandemic surged.
In 2021, one of his former speakers, the entertaining CNN
television personality Larry King passed away.
Keating recalled the great memories of King’s visit to
Speakers Forum and spontaneously wrote up a short story,
an appreciation of the man.
Well, it hit a chord with friends & colleagues and
inspired him to produce OutSpoken: 15 MasterClass Business
Essays, bringing together great past keynote speakers to
write about today’s important topics.
And if they could not all meet in person, they could
certainly bring all their ideas together in a book.
The 15 Masterclass Essays include works by such notables
“What Makes a Speech Great” by President Clinton’s Chief
Speechwriter, David Kusnet
“No Mountain Too High: Learning the Lessons of Everest” by
Mount Everest expedition leader John Amatt
“What Makes a Bestseller” by acclaimed author Jeffrey
“The Media is You, Like It or Not” by the Honourable
Pamela Wallin, O.C., S.O.M.
“Work Is So Much More Than a Paycheque” by Dr. Sherry
Cooper, Chief Economist, Dominion Lending Centres
“The Defence Never Rests” by Renowned Defence Attorney F.
The book is already catching the eye of several notable public
figures, who have this to say:
“Jeffrey Archer’s chapter is a delightful read! A
first-hand glimpse into the writer’s craft from one of the
most successful authors in the business.” Editor and
writer Rosalind Stefanac
“Speakers Forum is always a wonderful time where I learn
so much from so many high-profile people. The compelling
aspects of the keynote speakers is that many are history’s
decision makers and influencers which takes audiences
‘inside’ the stories. Thanks for the opportunity and the
education.” Long-time MC Gord Martineau, News Anchor
“Readers will easily see why F. Lee Bailey is one of the
legendarily talented and persuasive barristers in the
United States of the last fifty years. His powers of
persuasion and advocacy are almost as formidable in print
as in person.” Conrad Black
“What a great memory Jim. I actually seemto recall those
suspenders on him! Larry King truly was the best
‘Everyman’ on TV. Thank you for sharing such a fabulous
story – love the mix-up between Larry the Painter and
Larry the King!” Lisa LaFlamme, Chief Anchor/Senior
Editor, CTV National News
