17th February 2021: Forget Valentines, You’re Going To Love This Month’s PSA NW Event!

‘Brilliant and Resilient’ are two words that sum up this month’s speakers, who you are going to love. So join us to be dazzled and inspired at what promises to be a fantastic evening with…


MICHELLE MILLS PORTER, expert in human communication, Master Behaviour Profiler, and the creator of the People Reader analysis tools, which help People Passionate organisations to “Unleash their People Power.”

Michelle takes us on a journey, to the depths of one of the biggest natural disasters in our living history. We’ll be there with her, living it, tasting it, smelling it… and feel the wretchedness and the despair of those who endured it. She then reveals something utterly beautiful – the heart of humanity. Michelle reveals the truth behind our motivation, the sheer power of collaboration and bring you to a heart-warming finish.


STEVE BUSTIN, PSA National President will be exploring how to get the best from the PSA and why we are ‘better together’. He shares valuable tips & tools for reaching out to others to network, collaborating and developing relationships within the PSA.


And PENNY HASLAM and JULIE HOLMES share how to create THE perfect showreel that you’re 100% proud to tout around, with examples and insights on what makes a stand out reel. It promises to be a ‘don’t-miss’ session to help you create this crucial part of your speaker marketing collateral that translates into bookings. Penny and Julie joined by TV director and cameraman STEVE BLEARS for his views on what makes impactful video and tips on cutting it together.

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!
