Speakers Magazine Challenges Black CEOs to Speak Up About Racial Injustices

Honoring the Legacy of George Floyd

Speakers Magazine with Velma Trayham on the cover

Detroit, MI — The June issue of Speakers Magazine is online and features Dr. Velma Trayham who grew up in Houston and knew George Floyd, who was also from Houston. “The entire world witnessed in horror George’s murder in the hands of Minneapolis police officers. I am so hurt by what has taken place. George Floyd was near and dear to my heart – we grew up on the same street,” said Trayham.

Dr. Trayham, who is an award-winning business owner of Thinkzilla Consulting Group out of Atlanta, speaks on leadership, entrepreneurship, and women’s empowerment across the nation. “Now is the time for us to embrace responsibility and build a just and fair society for our children’s children. As a mother of black boys, I am praying and seeking divine intervention, solutions, and wisdom from God.”

Dr. Trayham is about action. She pioneered a nonprofit in 2017, the Millionaire Mastermind Academy, to educate and support the women-owned businesses – which she believes strengthens the economic impact of their community.

As an industry leader and an award-winning entrepreneur working the major brands and Fortune 500 companies, she has devoted herself to helping others achieve the same success. “My message is about resiliency and faith. I tell my story in my book, When God Says Go.”

Dr. Trayham’s journey to success began in poverty and with traditional education combined with real-world experience. “I had three business failures, but I did not give up. I found that my personal experiences taught me how to fail forward, fast.”
