22nd July 2021: Fun Boy Three – It ain’t what you do it’s the way that you do it!

HEADLINING IN THE NORTH WEST THIS MONTH is funny man and Speaker Hall of Fame star, Terry Brock.

He joins us from Florida, USA to help us power up our pro-speaker businesses by showing us how to create compelling quality content that helps solve our customers’ problems.


We’ve also got two SHOWCASES – first off is Alex Williams who has over 16 years’ clinical experience assessing and treating mental illness within the NHS as well as taking the journey to overcome his own personal trauma.

He’s on a mission to improve the mental health of young adults and teenagers by helping them to re-discover their power, recognise their potential and regardless of what happens to them and to realise their dreams are still possible.


And then it’s the turn of ghost writer and pro-speaker Martin Morrison. Whether you want to write a book, get booked to speak, sell a product or service, or get hired for your expert knowledge, you must explain, in simple language, what your reader, customer or client will gain. Or you’re wasting your own time!

Martin shares a process that will show you what you are really selling, and explains why selling the sizzle (not the steak) is never enough.

Get ready to take notes!


PLUS PLUS PLUS! The hottest competition in town gets underway… three hungry-for-success emerging NW speakers try to get through to the Speaker Factor nationals, with their best ever 5 minutes of speaking! Come along to give your support and get to know our newest members.

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!
