Saturday 15th January 2022: Get your Speaking Business off to a Strong Start

As we start 2022, our goal for PSA Ireland is to Start Strong.

This year, we’re going to build on, grow and support our community, the fastest growing region of the PSA!

We’re also going to continue to help speakers, trainers, consultants to become better speakers and grow their speaking business.

So I am terribly excited to bring you two super speakers:

If we want to reach a larger audience with our message, then we need to rely on video way more than we ever did. Johnny Beirne will speak to us about Standing out on Screen, how we can build the trust factor in our videos, which will catapult our reach, likeability and professionalism.

To grow our business, the simple fact is that we need to make more sales. Stuart Harris will share tips on making The Ultimate Sales Call. Lets face it, nobody (well most of us) likes making calls so Stuart will help us avoid messy mistakes and give us techniques so we can’t wait for Monday to arrive to make our sales calls.

We’ve also got a showcase from one of our members, Aoife Gaffney.

We continue to be in the Zoom room so no travel involved this month.


9.00-10.15 – Member-Only Meeting
This year, we’re looking to build on our community, to come together to support one another and to learn from each other as we embark on an exciting year ahead. There is so much knowledge and experience among the members of our region so I’m looking forward to harnessing all of it!

Expect networking and tailored masterminding to start strong for 2022.


Our first Keynote of the day is by Johnny Beirne, who will help us to Stand Out on Screen.

No matter what we’re selling – speaking gigs, training, consulting – we need to use videos in our marketing.

It’s well known that people have to go through the know-like-trust process before they will buy.

Trust is a key part of this and nothing builds trust quicker then authentic videos.

In this master class, you will learn how to set up professional videos, when used properly, will generate more online sales, enquiries and impress more people.

Johnny will speak to us about:
1. Simple Studio Set Up for Professional and Engaging Videos
2. An equipment list that will suit every budget
3. Tips and Techniques that will make viewers want to buy.


Our member showcase this month is by Aoife Gaffney.

The member showcase section is where a member can practice a new talk or try out a new version of a talk in front of their peers.

In a talk entitled ‘Trust’, Aoife will speak about learning to listen to your instincts and trust your own intuition for success and well-being.


Our final keynote of the day sees our Celtic Cousin Stuart Harris, aka The Tartan Trainer join us from Scotland to talk to us about The Ultimate Sales Call.

Do YOU make these 2 Massive Mistakes?

In his 30 years of Training & Coaching sales and customer service Consultants, our final Keynote Speaker of 2022 has noticed
2 MASSIVE Mistakes that many business owners make.


They either meander through their calls with no clear direction, so, they fail to reach a successful outcome.

They stick to a very strict Call Script that minimises the chance of building rapport, spotting confusion in the customer’s voice and even missing crucial Buying Signals and verbal nods of approval.

In this engaging session, Stuart will share with you tons of tips, tools and sales call strategies that you can put into practice in your very next call.


We close at 1pm officially but stay on for a bit longer for some further chats.

This is an online event on Zoom so you have to buy a ticket to get the link.

If you have any questions about the event, please get in touch with our Regional President, Denise Fay

We look forward to welcoming you online on 15th January 2022!
