I am very proud to announce that at the Global Speakers Federation Board Meeting in January, the Board unanimously voted to accept the Philippine Association of Professional Speakers (PAPS) as the 15th member of the Federation.


When he heard the news, Founder and President of PAPS, Lloyd Luna, immediately issued a statement saying, “We are grateful to have been given an opportunity to serve the industry that we all serve and love. From all of us here in the Philippines, we thank you for this honor. We are excited for what’s coming!”

You can see the longer statement issued by PAPS here.

 

With 90 members at present, and growing, PAPS looks set to extend the reach of the professional speaking industry to a lot more people in the Philippines.

Who will be the 16th association to join the Federation? If you are interested in setting up an association in your country, please visit this link to see the criteria and requirements for joining the Federation.

UPDATE ON THE GLOBAL SPEAKING FELLOW DESIGNATION

Written by GSF Editor on . Posted in Federation News

As you may know, our global designation ‘Global Speaking Fellow’ has been on hold for some time while the Standing Committee has been reviewing the application process and the criteria for this global designation.

I’m now very pleased to announce that the GSF Board of Directors recently approved the recommendations put forward by the Global Designation Standing Committee. You can learn more about this in my video message.

Our GSF website has been updated with all the details about the Global Speaking Fellow designation, including FAQ, competency framework, application process, and fees, so do click on the link and take a look at all the new pages.

We are now accepting online applications for this global designation, and we’re looking forward to conferring some new Global Speaking Fellows in February at the Global Speakers Summit.

If you are a Certified Speaking Professional – conferred by the National Speakers Association (USA) or by Professional Speakers Australia – or if you are Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association of the UK and Ireland – we look forward to receiving your application very soon for Global Speaking Fellow.

All the best for 2018, and I hope to see you at the Summit.
