1st June 2022: Are you focusing on the IMPORTANT stuff?

The PSA East Midlands is delighted to invite you to our next fabulous event where you will learn all about how to focus on the Important Stuff… AND learn what, exactly, the important stuff is! This is not one to be missed!

We have two incredible speakers lined up to help you learn how to Speak Better and Speak More PLUS an opportunity to mastermind with like-minded professional speakers.

Showcase Speaker – Isi Dixon – Increase your focus to improve your life

Are you proud of your ability to multitask but wondering why you’re stressed all the time?
Do you find that some days you’re getting so much more done than others, and time almost seems to stand still?

The ability to focus is at the heart of improving your productivity at work and key to gaining a more conscious and deliberate life overall.

Isi will be sharing tips on how to reduce distractions so that focus becomes possible.

Grow your speaking business by making it personal – A keynote by Alastair Greener

Sometimes we spend so much time and resources on marketing that we forget about the clients we already have. By nurturing our business relationships, we can make ourselves more memorable and referable while growing our speaking brands.

In this keynote, Alastair will share 5 ways of personalising the way we communicate with our clients that will help our speaking businesses grow.

Packed with valuable and practical tips, this talk will teach you:
– How to make your interactions with new and existing clients more personal.
– How the quality of your communication makes as much difference as the quantity.
– How small gestures can make a huge impact.

Speak More, Speak Better Masterminding

Learning how to ‘Speak More’ and ‘Speak Better’ is a forever journey and it takes focus, discipline and accountability. In order to support you with that, we are giving you the opportunity to mastermind on all things Speaking with like-minded professional speakers just like you.

“The quality of a person’s life is most often a direct reflection of the expectations of their peer group. To reach the top of the mountain, you need to surround yourself not only with those who have been there, but also those who want to go there.” Tony Robbins

This part of the evening will provide a space for you to share a current speaking goal or challenge and receive guidance, support and encouragement on the way forward from the rest of your mastermind group.

Time to focus on the important stuff of getting your ticket booked so you can come and join us!

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!
