This month we have another packed online event for you!


Our keynote this month will be delivered by Mike Pagan.

The title of Mike’s presentation is:
Mental Wealth: Unlock your potential, enrich your life.

So many of us forget or neglect to look after ourselves and this makes us less wealthy. Is your mental wealth fit for purpose for you and your business?

Humans are social animals and we need the help of others to succeed in life and work. With collective wisdom, mutual support and a Mental Wealth team by your side you can:

• Power through obstacles and problems.
• Achieve more and expect success.
• Unleash creativity, improve decisions and eliminate isolation.
• Nurture your mind, body and soul and find resilience in challenging times.
• Navigate your own unique journey with purpose and passion.

Recognise your true potential, love what you do and live the life you choose with the support, encouragement and proactive potential of a Mental Wealth team.

In this inspiring and energising talk you’ll discover how to build a hand-picked Mental Wealth team of your own – one that spotlights your success, opens up opportunity and brings wisdom, inspiration and motivation to everything you do.

Mike Pagan is an author, speaker and superior executive coach with more than 25 years of business management, coaching and consulting experience. He is an expert in helping clients achieve positive mental wealth through building handpicked support networks and helping them unlock significant performance improvements.


At the PSA we encourage all of our Associate Members and Professional Members to work on improving their speaking skills, and one way we do that is to provide an opportunity for them to have a “showcase”. We provide the opportunity to our members to share part of a talk or a workshop, or perhaps try out a new beginning or a new ending to a talk, perhaps a new story or anything else we are working on to get really valuable constructive feedback from our friends and peers in a supportive, encouraging and professional environment.

If you would like an opportunity to deliver a showcase, please do contact Andrew, our Regional President.


Our showcase speaker this month is Sam Warner.

The title of Sam’s showcase is:
‘To TEDx or not to TEDx?’

Do you have an idea worth spreading?

If you’ve ever wondered if you could or should deliver a TEDx talk, then this session will be helpful to you. Running through all the preparation required and the different experiences you can have at the TEDx events will better fortify you against anxiety of the unknown and help you feel more confident about delivering a great talk.

Sam will share her insights from organising TEDx Telford in 2018 and 2019, coaching over 30 TEDx speakers and delivering her own TEDx talk at Malvern in September this year.


Finally, we’ll also have the chance to share our thoughts, key takeaways and actions from this year’s PSA Summit.


If you speak for a living (EG a professional speaker, trainer, presenter in the media) or aspire to do so, then this is the group for you! Also, if you regularly give professional presentations to help showcase or promote your business, this group could really benefit you.

Come ready to share, learn, give and receive feedback

Welcome to PSA Staffordshire!

If you speak publicly in any capacity (e.g. as a speaker, trainer, teacher, preacher or presenter) or aspire to do so then this is the association for you! Also, if you regularly give professional quality presentations to help showcase or promote your organisation or business then this friendly and supportive region in the middle of the country could really benefit you.     Come ready to share and to learn, to give and to receive feedback.     We gather every month, generally on the third Tuesday evening in each month; please see the PSA events page (from the link below) for the speakers that are lined up for our next event.     Timings for each event are as follows: Arrive at 18:00 for a 18:30 start. We aim to conclude the activities of the event at around 21:00 allowing time for some further networking until around 21:30.       Our face to face meetings are held just across the road from Stoke Station, at: The Potters Club Federation House Station Road Stoke-on-Trent ST4 2SA 01782 848869 https://thepottersclub.co.uk/ (see l4b.me/potters for directions)     Each evening involves one or more speakers testing material in front of their peers for constructive feedback, followed by a guest keynote speaker who either presents on a topic relevant for speaking professionally or delivers a particularly good live example of professional speaking (and usually both). We often have a ‘mastermind’ session where we all discuss, brainstorm and share experiences around topics relevant for professional speakers, and several times a year we have an afternoon workshop to explore a particular topic in more detail.  It is also a great opportunity to network with other speakers over coffee in the breaks.
