How to podcast with Purpose and create positive GLOBAL ripple effects
– A keynote and Q&A by Amy Rowlinson

Imagine a space where your content has an evergreen life span, is freely accessible 24/7 globally, where you can demonstrate your expertise and provide value to your targeted audience.

You don’t need to imagine this space. Podcasting is this space! With a podcast you have the opportunity to speak on one of the largest stages in the world.

When you think commercially about your approach to podcasting from day one and understand how podcasting fits into your speaking business ecosystem, there are three key questions to ask yourself and 10 key components to consider.

Are you ready to perform to a global audience in what could be the biggest speaking gig you’ll ever have in your speaking career?

Podcasting is Amy’s preferred speaker business model and in this interactive Q&A session, she is going to share with you three key aspects of podcasting:
– How to podcast with purpose
– How to stand out from the crowd
– How to grow your podcast from a single seed and create positive global ripple effects

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.

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!
