A KEYNOTE with PHIL INGLE on Speaking Professionally to Professionals!
Phil Ingle is both a PSA Fellow and a CIPD Fellow. In his capacity as Branch Chair for the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD) he schedules events for members of the HR and L&D professions so is also a ‘speaker booker’. He is constantly looking for speakers for events, both live and online.

WHY did we book Phil to speak at the PSA Yorkshire?
Your next client may be in the audience at a professional body event. Phil schedules events for members of the HR and L&D professions so is also a ‘speaker booker’.

In this session we will consider:
– Why professional bodies may be a route to your market
– What a ‘speaker booker’ is looking for
– How to engage with professional bodies by tuning your approach

Phil uses PSA Members and Fellows at CIPD events – not just because they are in the PSA. It is not how good as a speaker you are – it is your relevance, and how you put yourself across.
This is an updated version of a session Phil ran in October 2021 at the PSA Convention.
Phil will also share his experience of other professional bodies so you can consider how you as a speaker can help other professionals, which may lead to further opportunities for you.

WHO is Phil Ingle?
Phil develops new skills in business leaders so they can improve organisational sustainability. His speciality is making understanding finance easier.
He enhances skills by specifically designing workshops, seminars and learning events so management understands how their decisions affect overall performance.
Phil combines this with coaching and leadership skills, remembering that professionals in many organisations have to develop communication skills to match their responsibilities.
As well as being a FPSA, Phil is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development, Fellow of the Royal Society for Arts, & member of The London Institute of Banking & Finance.


A SHOWCASE by DIANA GRANT: Just say YES! Ways to create a life you love to live
Showing up for a life you love to live – your way. A snapshot view into how saying yes can be the catalyst to enjoying experiences that your own self-limiting beliefs might otherwise keep from you.
Diana will be sharing from her life, stories of moments when she has said yes, even when she was shaking in her boots with fear, and how those experiences have shaped her into living a fuller version of her potential.
The lessons she has learned are applicable for anyone and offer a route to true conscious living and never thinking ‘I wonder what could have been, if only I had done…’ Instead, just say YES!

WHAT are you going to learn from Diana Grant?
Learn how to spark:
– Creativity
– Connection &
– Confidence
for a richer life & career!

WHO is Diana Grant?
Self-Love Revolutionary Speaker, Author, Coach, a passionate agent for change, growth and transformation; helping people to create sustainable life balance and liberate their full personal power through authentic Self-Love and Conscious Living practices.
Diana Grant shares a revolutionary message that impacts you at your core and creates a once in a lifetime experience. Her raw honesty is balanced with immense empathy and strength and an ability to hold space for her clients and audiences to shift, that comes from her rich life experience.
