Andrew Pain is passionate about developing the narrative on domestic abuse, so not only are support services for women improved and expanded, but also, the forgotten faces of domestic abuse have support and a voice, including; parents abused by children, the LGBTQ+ community and male survivors of female perpetrated abuse.

What domestic violence taught me about critical decision making

Purpose of session: Whether it’s personal goals, close relationships or business aspirations, making clear decisions sounds like it should be easy for decisive, proactive people (like business leaders) but throw in the pressure of; responsibility, the pull of hope, fear of loss and personal pride, then actually, critical decision making is a huge challenge, often keeping us awake at night, causing untold stress and making us unsure of ourselves when we most need to be decisive.

In his showcase, Andrew will examine the first of 3 mind-bending dilemmas, which both survivors of domestic violence and business leaders wrestle with, simply because of the roles they undertake, and he will do so, in order to help you make better decisions, more quickly and with less stress.

Key Learning Points:
– Why our natural human biases undermine wise decisions and how to spot the 3 nastiest culprits.
– Why boundaries form the foundation of effective decision making and self mastery.
– How to create your personal boundaries, so you no longer get pulled into things you’d rather avoid, you no longer tolerate things you know to be wrong and you no longer get stuck when you most need to move.

Welcome to PSA East Midlands

The East Midlands is the newest region of the Professional Speaking Association. Formed for speakers in Derby, Nottingham, Leicester and South Yorkshire – and visitors from other places – we have been creating fun-filled valuable events since December 2018.

At an East Midlands PSA meeting you’ll get:

  • A warm and friendly welcome
  • Great food
  • Easy and useful networking chats with other speakers from the region and elsewhere
  • Speakers practicing new material and inviting audience feedback (showcases)
  • Experienced speakers, often visiting Fellows from other regions and other countries, offering a ‘keynote’ which helps develop one of the two PSA aims
  • PSA aims: To speak more (building your speaking business) and to speak better (improve the quality of your content and delivery).

Each PSA region is run by members and Fellows of the Association who offer their time voluntarily to make the events worthwhile and enjoyable. Being a part of the committee is a great way to get to know everyone and expand your network.

If you are a member or a Fellow of the PSA and would like to speak at our East Midlands event, we’d be delighted to receive your information via the form.

If you have any questions, please drop us a line via email: [email protected]

We look forward to welcoming you to a fabulous event soon!
