You've wondered how do they do it? How did they start speaking internationally? How did they make the most of it when they did?

This month Two experienced speakers share their stories on how they have built their international businesses and you can too! Join us for "The Beauty and the Beast."  

Tracey Hughes is an education "guru" in the hairdressing industry worldwide and has successfully built a speaking and training business in her niche market. Joining PSA in 2014 on the recommendation of an international colleague, 'The Beauty' has been travelling extensively. Tracey will share on how she nurtures relationships, excels in delivery and leverages opportunities in an industry where image is everything. 

The Beast, is none other than Lindsay Adams CSPGlobal, a veteran of the PSA and an accomplished international speaker. He has a very different story to tell and will share how he "stumbled into" working internationally ten years ago and succeeded to the point of owning his own Singaporean speaking and training company.

Two interesting stories, two amazing speakers.  Come along ready to ask questions as the Beauty and the Beast have allowed lots of time for Q&A, so you can kick start your international adventure.


Lindsay Adams CSPGlobal has been a professional speaker for 15 years.  He has spoken in ten countries around the world and has focused on working Internationally seriously for the last 10 years.  In this session he is going to share some of the triumphs and pitfalls of working internationally and will share how you too can speak overseas and even get well paid for the pleasure. 

Working internationally is not as glamorous as it sounds, with a combination of expensive marketing, long haul flights and immigration difficulties to cope with it can be hard work.  The rewards however are just as numerous as the perils.  

Lindsay guarantees that you will learn at least these 3 gems and hopefully many more.

1.  How to target the ideal market for you.

2.  How to get your first speaking engagement and multiply that to many more.

3.  How to leverage your fee to double your income on each overseas trip.
