14th June 2022: Show up, Create Partnerships, Get paid!

How do you go from being a great speaker to being a great speaker who gets paid by the right people?

Well at South West PSA, we return to the room for our second in-person event of the year where 3 incredible speakers will show you exactly what it takes to start building that speaking business you are truly capable of. You can find us at:

The Bristol Golf Club
St Swithins Park,
Blackhorse Hill,
Bristol, BS10 7TP

We welcome author and International speaker, Anthony Stears, also known as the ‘Telephone Assassin’ who in his 90-minute masterclass, ‘How to make money from speaking’ will share a variety of speaker business models that all make money, so you can see what suits your style and type of business best.

He’ll then give you his ‘5 Conversations Stears’ to show you how to take control of your conversations, and get people to take action as a result of speaking to you.

– How different speakers make their money.
– How to get people to listen.
– Build rapport quickly.
– Establish your credibility.
– Create urgency.
– and Prevent pipeline constipation.

We also have the Collaboration Junkie, Dave Plunkett who in his workshop ‘Mastering the Partnership Dance’ will guide you through his DANCE framework for effective lead generation partnerships. Enabling you to leverage your credibility to form partnerships that generate high-quality leads (that don’t shop around or haggle on price and convert quickly) on a consistent basis.

– WHO your ideal strategic partner is, and WHY they really want to partner with you.
– HOW to ensure your partnership gets off on the right foot and only gets stronger.
– WHAT support you should be providing to ensure your partners connect you to their audience.

And if you’re still not sure, then we have published author, national award winning coach, professional speaker, and clinical hypnotherapist, the ‘Anxiety Expert’ Caroline Cavanagh who will show you how you can get out of your way by implementing skills and practices to grow mentally stronger and perform at your best.

– A new understanding of the role of anxiety and how it can be used to grow and enhance your speaking business.
– A three-step process that can be used to address anxious, uncertain thoughts that can be put in place straight away.
– Practical experience of how to give the mind leadership of thoughts rather than thoughts controlling you.
– A tool to support personal and business growth by having the confidence to step out of your comfort zone.
