John William Templeton, co-founder of National Black Business Month, leaves his listeners tingling with practical knowledge on how to address the most serious issues affecting black communities.
As author of Walls Come Tumbling Down: State of Black Business, sixth edition, Silicon Ceiling 9 (set for release in November 2009), Freedom Riders of the Cutting Edge and Success Secrets of Black Executives among two dozen books and documentaries, he brings the credibility of one of the country’s most respected business editors.
Dr. Grant Venerable, formerly provost of Chicago State University and Lincoln (PA) University says of him:
“John W. Templeton is an “impressario” like entrepreneur of the media world who sees future possibilities long before they occur. This is especially true in the world of creative media and innovative educational concepts. He brings together the right people at the right time to create new synergies that enable him to succeed in his always expansive objectives.”
His keynotes and speeches generate extensive press coverage and attract new stakeholders to the organizations he touches, such as the attached photo of the Northeast Florida Economic Opportunity Summit or his kickoff for the Golden Gate National Recreational Area’s Black History Month observance.
