At the recent Global Speakers Federation Annual Meeting in Dallas, GSF President, Shirley Taylor, was pleased to present three awards to these remarkable individuals.

Beverly Babb Award For Extraordinary Service
Lindsay Adams, CSP, HoF, Global Speaking Fellow



The Beverly Babb Award recognizes the service of individuals who have contributed strongly to the foundational growth of the Federation and/or member associations.

This award recognizes individuals who have typically served behind the scenes without expectation of recognition or reward – someone who has contributed extraordinarily to the growth, strength and substance of the Federation.

This year’s Beverly Babb Award was given to Lindsay Adams, who has just completed 11 years of service with the Federation.

Congratulations, Lindsay, and many thanks for your huge contribution to the GSF over the years.
