Gain from the Wisdom of Experienced Speakers

  • Wayne Berry(CSP) was one of the founders of NSAA in 1986. He's built a very successful speaking business, a training business, and was one of the first speakers in the world to transition his business into an almost exclusively online speaking, training, WebTV and business education business

  • Warwick Merry(CSP) is known as the Get More Guy. He’s a master MC, speaker and facilitator, renowned for his high-energy presentations and seminars.

On the night, each speaker will be interviewed to share their wisdom on the speaking business. We’ll also find out how they are planning for 2015 to maximise their results next year.  Get ready by writing down your questions for the speakers.

Following the interviews, we’ll hold a panel discussion and take questions from the floor.
