South West Region

President: Phil Barber

The South West Region is the newest of the PSA Regions and is based in Bristol, drawing in members from within the city, as well as those as far south as Exeter and as far north as Cheltenham.

Bristol is a vibrant city, with the fastest growing economy outside London, named by the Sunday Times as one of the Top 10 best cities in the world in 2014.

Our aims for the Region

The focus of the Regional events in 2018 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.

Where we meet…

The South West region meets at the Radisson Blu in Central Bristol. We have open networking in the bar downstairs from 5.30-6.30 pm with the main event starting at 6.45 pm on the second floor.
