What an honour it is to become the 21st President of the Global Speakers Federation, 2017-2018.

With 14 associations currently part of the Federation, I’m sure our Founding President, Warren Evans, would be very proud.

As we begin the Federation’s third decade, we are operating under an important new structure. Now, each of our current 14 Federation member associations is represented on the GSF Board of Directors by the association President or designate. Each Board member is in a very privileged position, one that carries with it the power to help influence the next decade.

With several new associations on their way to becoming members, your Federation is growing. If everyone works together this year, I think we will be setting ourselves up to create the foundations for a wonderful third decade full of growth and opportunities.

Thank you again for putting your trust in me to serve as the 21st President of the Global Speakers Federation. I am honoured to be standing on the shoulders of the giants who have come before me.

I promise you that I am committed to putting my heart and soul into this coming year, and to spreading the word that the Global Speakers Federation is at the very heart of our community.

I hope you will enjoy watching the video of my President’s Message for the coming year… and watch out for a few surprises along the way 😉

Shirley Taylor, CSP
