President’s Welcome

Whether you’re new to the world of professional speaking or an established and successful speaker – Welcome.

The Professional Speaking Association is the trade body for those who speak for a living, whether delivering a keynote, a training session or a coaching programme.

We are an association of around 700 colleagues who all have unique businesses but all of whom deliver our expertise through the spoken word and it’s my honour to be the PSA’s National President for 2019/2020.

I joined the PSA as an Associate in 2013, working my way up to Professional Member and now Fellow and I can safely say that my business has benefitted hugely from my membership of the Association. I have had the opportunity to learn how to ‘Speak More and Speak Better’ from some of the best speakers from around the world and have seen the return on the investment of both time and money where it matters – on the bottom line.

My theme for my presidential year is ‘More Business, Better Business’ as I want to ensure every speaker, at whatever stage of their speaking career, is building a successful, sustainable and profitable speaking business.

Make sure you put 9-11 October 2020 into your diaries for The Speaking Business Summit, our annual convention, taking place in Warwick. In two and a half days of exiting, focused and practical content, you’ll hear from some of the best speaking business brains from around the world who will help you to find more business and build a better business. You’ll also have a chance to meet and get to know your PSA colleagues. See for full details and to secure your ticket.

I also hope to meet you at one of our many regional events around the country – we have well over 100 events every year, but in the meantime explore this site to find out more about the PSA and what it can do for your speaker business.
