Featured Association: PSA UK-I

Written by anijmeh on . Posted in Federation News

The Professional Speaking Association of UK and Ireland was founded in 1999 and is a GSF success story currently with about 650 members, over 85 of which are Fellows and 225 are Professional Speaking members with the balance being “Associate Members”

Their Annual Conference “MEGA” is being held in Reading, which is just outside London and very close to Heathrow Airport, at a great Country club venue called Wokefield Park

There are a great array of fascinating inspirational and educational international speakers (many already recoignised at CSP level) including:

  • Ruby Newell-Legner from USA,
  • Jonathan Low from Malaysia,
  • David Newman and Faith Wood from Canada,
  • Sepehr Tarverdian from Iran,
  • Steve Barnett from South Africa.

In addition, they have a wealth of Speakers representing the British Isles, including:

  • Stuart Harris from Scotland, and
  • Nikki Owen, Joy Marsden, and Claire Carpenter from England

The event will be hosted on Friday 9th October and Saturday 10th October and will include loads of Experts sharing their ideas.  You will want to experience “The Speaker Factor” finals, as well as the Friday night street party and comedy night.  The event will conclude on the Saturday evening with a Gala Awards dinner – phew what an event!

On top of that we have our traditional “Speaking Sizzler” on Sunday morning with Lottie Hearn from Ireland, Mel Sherwood from Scotland, and Peter Tyler, Lee Jackson, Anthony Stears, and Vinay Parmar from England to send us home with loads on our “to do” lists.
