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 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 in either Edinburgh (usually near Haymarket station) or Glasgow (near Queen Street station). 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, with a break for a light supper. We also have half-day or full-day day ‘Business Builder’ sessions as well as occasional full-day Saturday events.

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 PSA Scotland President Scott Johnston. If you have any questions, please email Scott at [email protected].

Some of our event dates are listed below and you can visit the Eventbrite link for more. Please also join us on our open Facebook page for details of our upcoming events and helpful articles and news: https://www.facebook.com/groups/psascotland.

 The PSA is a member organisation covering the UK and Ireland, with sister organisations across the world under the banner of the Global Speakers Federation. For more see the page on this site at https://www.thepsa.co.uk/gsf.
