7th July 2021: Jaunty July

We’re looking forward to a Jaunty July event at PSA East Midlands, as well as our regional heat of Speaker Factor!

Keynote – Jackie Handy
The Power of I

‘The Power of I’ refers to the power that inclusion gives the world, as well as the small steps that ‘I’ have the power to take to create positive, sustainable change.

In this interactive session, Jackie will share her powerful story and shows that inclusion can be simple if we all commit to taking those steps. She believes that when we all do a little, the world can change a lot. Furthermore, when you focus on the diversity in your audience and make small changes in your delivery, you create deeper connections with them – and that will leave them coming back for more!

Takeaways Are:

  • Know how our unique map of the world influences our behaviour and language
  • Recognise how privilege and micro aggressions show up and what impact they have
  • Practical steps speakers can take right now, to become more inclusive and attractive to your clients

Jackie Handy has supported hundreds of individuals in organisations around the world to accelerate their performance. Formerly a top performing manager for 2 decades, she now works with businesses to give back the recipe for leadership and inclusion success. Through her corporate work as well as her own personal journey, Jackie has developed a deeper understanding of human behaviour. Why we do what we do, as well as how accepting we are about the behaviour of others. Her session will help demystify diversity & inclusion as well as providing some simple ways you can instantly become more inclusive in your speaking business.

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!
