Knowing exactly what next step is most efficient, is vital for all speakers at all levels.

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”.  Lao Tzu

As we start the new year I’m sure that we are all keen to take our speaking skills and businesses to the next level.

One of the best things about PSA is the amount of great information you get. The hard thing is knowing how it all fits together and what to do next!

So, to start the year off right – and for my first event at the President’s helm – I’d like to give you what neither Gary nor I had early in our careers:  a really clear and achievable Roadmap to your speaking success.

Working together with Sally Curtis, we’ve put together the Professional Speakers Roadmap. Based on our 50+ years of combined experience in speaking, marketing and business, the Roadmap will help you to integrate everything you learn and clearly mark out the next steps for your speaking success through 2018. 

The evening will be a Workshop in two parts:

  • 6pm sharp I’ll introduce the Speakers Roadmap workbook and show you how it works
  • After dinner Gary, Sally and I will lead you through each part of the Roadmap as you work with others on your table about where you are at and what you need to do in the next 30 days and the next 90 days

If you are just starting out as a Professional Speaker,  aspire to be one, or want to expand your influence further, you can - this is your opportunity to:

  • Avoid the mistakes that the leaders in the field have all made before
  • Sleep at night knowing you are on the right path – for you
  • Fast track to building your speaking career

Speakers Roadmap is the perfect vehicle for you if you want to:

  1. learn what to do to develop your business
  2. learn what to do to improve your speaking techniques
  3. be held accountable & maintain momentum step by step through your path

The Speakers Roadmap workbook will help you to decide and plan your next steps on

  • who you are and what your speaking gifts are
  • what your message is – or how to work that out!
  • steps you can take to market and sell yourself in the next 30 days
  • what social media will help you promote your brand
  • what kind of business model you need
  • what speaking skills you need to develop next
  • what resources you can develop now to improve your positioning and add value to your clients

You will also:

  • Develop strategic relationships with your colleagues
  • Develop Friendships
  • Keep on track on your pathway to success as a speaker
  • Keep connected to a like-minded community
  • Enjoy the broader benefits of PSA membership

The Roadmap is intended to be a working document for you during the year. At each PSA meeting this year we will have a pre-dinner Group Mastermind session where we can discuss where you are at, what you’ve done lately and what else you need – so that you can stay accountable and on track through the year.

Step into further success in your speaking career, your life and your legacy, and BOOK NOW

NB. PLEASE ARRIVE by 5.45, we will start the workshop at 6pm (before dinner)
