Numerous talent shows have been released on TV, focusing on finding the next powerhouse in singing, dancing, acting, and more. But there has never been a mainstream show dedicated to shining light on the most exceptional speakers. This coming Fall of 2021, OnStage Plus, a digital TV network on a mission to produce content that brings the stage to the homes of people around the world, will launch a new original series called The Next Greatest Speaker. And it will be spearheaded by renowned personalities, Shawn Fair, Les Brown, and David Watts.
As co-hosts, Shawn Fair and Les Brown will take the lead as the show gives speakers from all across the country an opportunity to audition with a one-minute motivational talk challenge. This twelve-week series will feature ten selected participants who will take on different challenges designed to bring out the best in them.
At the helm of this one-of-a-kind content, Shawn Fair will serve as a coach to each of the contestants, gauging their performance in each of the challenges and offering them much-needed guidance. As a globally acknowledged leader in the motivational speaking and training industry, this sought-after household name is an expert in the areas of corporate leadership vision, consultation, business development, and coaching. He has made a mark in countless people across the United States, Canada, and Europe by helping individuals realize that change is a requisite in personal and commercial growth.
With his unique ability to engage, motivate, and inspire leaders of all levels to translate their vision into reality, Shawn Fair has earned recognition as one of the best motivational and inspirational speaking coaches in the country.
Together with Shawn Fair is the premier keynote speaker Les Brown, who will provide contestants with group coaching. Well-respected for being an authority on achievement, Les Brown addresses audiences as large as eighty thousand people and has the ability to successfully hold the rapt attention of crowds, energizing them to see challenges as surmountable. With his skill in weaving his compelling life story in the context of people’s everyday lives, this impressive figure manages to be a relatable source of guidance in the pursuit of making an impact on the world.
And behind this network that calls the digital platform ROKU its home is David Watts. Currently serving as a partner at OnStage Plus, he has been in the marketing and entertainment industry since he was nineteen. Not only has he been exposed to the nitty-gritty of the industry, but he has also worked with some of its stars, including the A-list celebrities Louis Grossette Jr., Les Brown, Vivica A. Fox, Mario Van Peebles, and Denzel Washington, as well as with top athletes and directors from all over the world.
With its goal of providing speakers with a platform that will highlight their stories and create opportunities that will elevate their careers, OnStage Plus’s The Next Greatest Speaker will introduce a must-watch series to viewers. Most importantly, this show and its faces — Shawn Fair, Les Brown, and David Watts — will give people the chance to hear inspirational messages on every episode and an exclusive look into how to become excellent speakers themselves.
