Let's Get Down to Business! 

Are you constantly looking for new clients?

Do you seem to always get pressure to reduce your fee?

Would you like to make MORE money from fewer clients?

Then you MUST be at the October PSA meeting in Brisbane.

Our National Vice President, Warwick Merry CSP, will be delivering two sessions to help you make more money with less effort.

These are NOT his standard presentations but have specifically been designed for PSA members based on his 17 years experience in the business.

Session 1: Make More Money from Fewer Clients

In this session you will learn:

  • The importance of Marketing vs Speaking
  • What is the best language to use to seal the deal
  • Where is the best area to focus
  • Unique pricing strategies
  • Value add selling
  • How to bundle
  • What to bundle
  • How to remove barriers to the deal

You will also get a chance to have all of your questions answered even if you have to swamp Warwick over the dinner break.

Session 2: How to Create Priceless Products for Next to Nothing

One of the biggest challenges we face as speakers is that we trade time for money. It is challenging to leverage that time. One of the key ways we can do this is via products.

But how do you write a book when you have no idea what to write about or can’t fill more than 20 pages (and that is using a lot of diagrams)?

Books are just one element of the product range and they are the one that takes significant effort.

During this session you will discover at least 12 different products you can easily and affordably produce.

Warwick will cover:

  • Pros and cons of different products
  • What gets great traction
  • What ones are easy to produce
  • The keys elements of each product
  • The most important factor in ALL products
  • What you can do with product
  • What products to be wary of
  • When to sell your product
  • How to sell your product

As an additional bonus two lucky attendees will have produced for them a product of their own, focussed on their topic and their expertise with a retail value of $40 that they can then sell or give away.


Come along early and join Warwick for an informal chat about the industry, PSA, financial security, insurance coverage, motorbikes, poodles or anything else you would like.
