13th September 2022: Live and In Person!

PSA South West is back in the room for September at Bristol Golf Club, St Swithins Park, Blackhorse Hill, Almondsbury, Bristol, BS10 7TP.

This month we welcome 3 incredible speakers who are going to show you how you can stand out as leaders in your field and create a real impact within your business and those you work with.

First up we welcome William Buist, author of the newly released “Intentional Mastery”, a Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association (where he is also Finance Director), and a Business Mentor.

In his masterclass titled: ‘Intentional Mastery – Step beyond your expertise and Build Better Business’

You will…
1. Gain an understanding of the journey to mastery, and what it takes.
2. Know what building better business will mean for you.
3. Leave with clear actions that make an immediate difference to your business.

Following this, Jo Lightfoot – aka the Human Battery Charger takes the stage to deliver her keynote. ‘Charge your creative batteries!’.

In which you’ll gain…
1. Awareness and allocation of your energy sources.
2. Insight into the most powerful of all energy sources and how tapping that will positively impact your speaking.
3. Specific techniques you can tap into that will get your creative juices flowing.

We then finish off with TEDx and event speaker, consultant, trainer, creator of the BRAVEwork inclusive leadership program, and author of ‘The little book of Belonging’, Jackie Handy.

From Jackie’s keynote titled ‘The Power of Inclusion’, you’ll learn to…

1. Truly understand what diversity, equity and inclusion is and why it matters.
2. Bust the myth of ‘privilege’ in order to take steps in your speaking business.
3. Recognize how your own ‘map of the world’ shapes your behaviour and language.
4. How to take small steps to be more inclusive in your life and in your business.

The event will be held at St Swithins Park, Blackhorse Hill, Almondsbury, Bristol, BS10 7TP, where sandwiches and refreshments are included with the purchase of a ticket.

We cannot wait to see you there!

Welcome to PSA South West

Our aims for the Region

The focus of the Regional events this year will be to bring the country’s most successful speaking professionals here to share their wisdom and experience and to encourage and nurture up-and-coming speakers in the South West area.
