18th November 2021: Are you proud of your speaker contract?

We are delighted to say we are back in the room this November at Holiday Inn Warrington!

When it comes to your speaker contract, do you just cross your fingers and hope for the best? In the way it’s worded, do you feel it’s a touch heavy handed? And maybe you’re secretly embarrassed whenever you get asked for it?

If so, you need the PSA NW on 18th November…

That’s where lawyer and contracts expert Sarah Fox comes in. She’ll share her wisdom and practical experience in her talk, Creating Trust and Covering Your Backside – The Professional Way.

You’ll learn:

• The four cornerstones of great content
• How to adapt your contracts into the new normal
• Nudging others not to breach your IP rights
• The importance of your contract sounding like you (not a lawyer)

Sarah Fox is a lawyer who is an expert in writing contracts in just 500 words. Having spent years training people on complex contracts, she realised they were simply shoved in a drawer and nobody cared. So she’s leading a one-woman revolution for contracts that you can read, understand and use, whatever your line of business. Frankly, as no-one takes her seriously, she has had to write books to prove it actually can be done.

We will also hear from an up and coming PSA member in our showcasers slot:

Simone Vincenzi, who helps you think about becoming an authority figure in your field, is on the hunt for feedback and support to help take his speaking further.

As the host of PSA events, we have taken all reasonable and appropriate precautions and followed the latest government guidelines when planning this event.

As a delegate at a PSA event, you must (1) follow the latest government guidelines; (2) take a lateral flow test before attending unless you have been fully vaccinated (we also recommend this for the safety of other delegates even where you have been fully vaccinated); (3) not attend if the test is positive or if you have any of the recognised symptoms of Covid.

Please read our PSA Events Policy for Covid for more details.

Welcome to PSA North West

The PSA NW is a dynamic and friendly region. Our members speak for a living in a number of ways, as trainers, coaches, consultants, employees whose job involves a lot of presenting and full-time conference/keynote/school speakers.

There is so much more to speaking than just standing up in front of groups of people and sharing your ideas. We support members to ‘speak more and speak better’ as professionals in the event industry, so each monthly meeting schedules a variety of speakers to help us do that.

We focus on the business of speaking – so you keep getting the work. And we focus on the performance side of speaking – to stay current and help meet the challenges of the future of the speaking profession. Our members are incredibly generous with their time and expertise, and truly understand the power of community in this competitive market.

Our meetings take place on a Wednesday or Thursday evening, mid-month. Depending on local restrictions we meet either on Zoom or at a hotel in Lymm (WA13), which is close to the M6/M62/M56 and Warrington train stations.

Guests are always made welcome – so come and check out our meetings and meet others in the speaking business. You can attend as a guest two times before taking up membership.

We look forward to getting to know you and supporting you on your speaker journey!
