26th May 2022: ‘I Am Inclusive, Aren’t I?’ – How to Ensure Your Business Doesn’t Exclude Potential Clients

Are you sure you are inclusive of all your potential clients and contacts?

We all want to be more relevant in our lives and businesses… but how do we ensure we’re not unintentionally excluding people?

It’s tough to stay relevant in today’s world. It’s easy to make mistakes that can turn away potential clients if you’re not aware of how inclusive you really are.

At PSA Scotland’s incredible May event, you learn how to better connect with people who are not exactly like you… and demonstrate your business is one they can trust. You’ll boost your own relevance and alignment within your society, business, and the clients that you serve and support.

Plus, you’ll learn how to better understand your existing clients and create a speaking business that appeals to an audience from different backgrounds.

The event will be in-person at the Apex Waterloo Place in Edinburgh.

“I am Diverse and Inclusive, aren’t I?” How to Ensure Your Business Doesn’t Accidentally Exclude People – with Joanne Lockwood

Diversity and Inclusion is not just a box to check. Diversity is in all of us. We all want to feel included and feel a sense of belonging. But many of us make mistakes that could unintentionally exclude potential clients, employees, or partners.

Are you making these mistakes in your business?

We know that with the right environment, people from all backgrounds and lived experiences can thrive as themselves. None of us wants to cover or mask a key part of our identity to conform and ‘culture fit’.

We want to create businesses that let our clients and networks feel they can be themselves, don’t we?

Joanne Lockwood, Founder and CEO of SEE Change Happen, is an Inclusion and Belonging specialist. In her keynote, she will share how we can make our speaking businesses more inclusive.

When you create and nurture your own awareness of diversity and inclusion, there are significant benefits to your business…
– Boosts your relevance and understanding of customers and clients.
– Creates an environment of peak performance through differences in perspective.
– Generates innovation, creativity, and better business practices for you and your clients.
– Helps society function at a higher level by promoting inclusion.

If you want to make sure your business stays relevant, you definitely will not want to miss this month’s incredible event!

Welcome to PSA Scotland!

Whether you are an aspiring or established speaker in Scotland looking to meet other like-minded professionals, or are interested in speaking at a PSA Scotland event, you can be assured of a warm welcome.

PSA Scotland region is dedicated to helping members ‘Speak More. Speak Better’. You might be a trainer, consultant, coach or event/keynote speaker or you might wish to promote your business through speaking. We can definitely help you with ‘the Business of Speaking’.

At PSA Scotland we meet monthly and our events typically involve a guest speaker and/or our own members speaking. We also have opportunities for members to try out new material and receive powerful, invaluable feedback from their colleagues and friends.

Most of our events are held in the evening. We often arrange our events around the availability of visiting speakers, so please let us know if you have a speaking gig in Central Scotland and would like to speak at one of our events. We’d love to hear from you!

We have an active committee of volunteers, led by the PSA Scotland Regional President. If you have any questions, please email [email protected].

Some of our event dates are listed below and you can book a ticket via the link. Please also join us on our open Facebook page for details of our upcoming events and helpful articles and news:
