4th July 2022: Famous For Five

4th July is PSA Birmingham’s final online regional event, and we are going offline with a bang! You could say it’s our Independence Day…

Can you speak on your topic for five minutes? Or perhaps you’d like to practice your Speaker Factor talk? Then get yourself to along to our event!

We’ll be welcoming our esteemed National President Dr. Lynda Shaw, who will be getting us all excited about what’s to come at the Global Speakers Summit in October.

We are also joined by our wonderful PSA Foundation Director Mike Pagan, who will be giving an insight about the role of the PSA Foundation and how it can support our members.

The mic then passes to you: whether you’d like to try out some new material or refine some existing content, we will make space for you on our virtual stage. There’s the option to also receive feedback from your fellow guests to help you hone your messages even further.

The caveat – you speak for five minutes.

This might sound simple but, as many of us know, delivering a 5-minute talk can be more challenging than delivering a 30-minute talk.

If you’re up for that challenge and would like the chance to be ‘famous for five’ then reach out to our Regional President, Darren Harris in advance to be considered – [email protected]

Here’s our full agenda:
5:45 Networking
6:00 Welcome & Updates
6:10 Dr.Lynda Shaw – GSS update
6:15 Mike Pagan – PSA Foundation update
6:20 Famous for five
7:30 Close

See you online this July!

Members get to takeaway practical speaking tips, test their own material and network with like minded individuals.

Visitors are made to feel welcome by the PSA community and  can attend up to three meetings as a guest.
