8th June 2021 – Who Is On Your Team?

No-one is an island. It takes a village to feed a speaker. It made a difference to this starfish…

When we work alone we have no-one to tell us how awful the first line of the email is – or help plan the workshop, or do the book-keeping, or make the tea!

Learning how and when to collaborate or add to your team is a key growth step for any business.

At PSA South West in June join us as we answer the question: Who is on your team?

Caroline Cavanagh will be bringing her Showcase then we have two fantastic keynote presentations from a pair of PSA Presidents: Roger Harrop and Lynda Shaw.

We will also have our regular Building Better Business moment with William Buist and round off the evening with a relaxing chat in the Green Room with Mark Faithfull.

Roger Harrop:
“I’ve now been in the speaking business for an amazing 20 years. I’ve spoken to over 30,000 business leaders in 50 countries. I’ve given keynote speeches and run seminars and masterclasses – from 12 minutes to three days with audiences from just 3 to 1500.

Along the way, I’ve learned some stuff about the business of speaking:
The dos and don’ts of how to get bookings
How to get your audience and your clients to love you and want to have you back How to anticipate problems that you might never believe might happen
How to up your income per booking
How to get paid
How to travel as painlessly as possible
– and how to to enrich your life, have fun and, let’s be honest, earn silly money doing it!

So, I’d like to share with you all that I can about what I’ve picked up along the way to help you to go along a similar journey – if that’s what you’d like to do!”.

Lynda Shaw – What’s the difference between a pushmi-pullyu, a pegasus and a statue?

One doesn’t know which way to go and is indecisive, one is powerful and flies high and the other stays still only
to get sat on and shat upon.

This fun, interactive talk will give you a whole new way of seeing your business and examine where you go from here.

You will leave this talk with a whole new way of seeing your business. It will open up options that you hadn’t thought were available to you… and you will have a lot of fun!

William Buist: Building Better Business

Having the right people around you is important for any endeavour. The best surround themselves with the right people, with the right skills, to ensure that they deliver at their best.

So who is on your team? Where are the gaps? We’ll cover asking for help and the power of mastermind groups to connect you with the skills and experience that you miss, and for your skills and experience to support others.

In the Green Room with Mark Faithfull
Join our speakers and the PSA SW gang for a relaxed open discussion in the Green Room after the main meeting. Bring your questions, problems, challenges and doubts and harness the wisdom of the room to guide you to speak more and speak better.

If you have any questions about the event, please contact Mark Faithfull on 07800 874665 or email [email protected]

We look forward to seeing you on 8th June at 3pm!
