About Us

The speaking industry in Australia

Until recently the role of a professional speaker in Australia hardly existed. Companies and organisations seeking people to address conferences and meetings relied largely on finding people with something to say who could be cajoled to say it.

The increasing pace of change, the heightened sophistication of audiences and the focus on achieving results led to the demand for a better answer and a new role was created that of professional speaker. A role to be filled by someone who could present information of interest and value in an interesting and valuable way.

And now, in Australia every day, at literally hundreds of events ranging from small team sales meetings and service group dinners to huge corporate conventions and multi national conferences, professional speakers go about their business of presenting ideas, information, views and values to entertain, enthralls, educate and energize both the audience and the organisers.


Who we are

National Speakers was established in 1987. The Association was a founding member of the
Global Speakers Federation and is one of only two national associations which grants the international Certified Speaking Professional designation.

It is the only professional body in Australia representing the members of the professional speaking industry. It exists to develop, promote and uphold the highest possible standards for the benefit of both its members and the public they serve. Any person who has an interest in the speaking industry whether speaker or supplier, seasoned professional or raw recruit is eligible to apply for membership and accreditation at the appropriate level.

Code of Conduct

Members of National Speakers abide by a Code of Conduct. To ensure that these are maintained to the highest standards, there is a standard procedure for dealing with complaints.


Our Values

National Speakers strives to be recognized as an organization of stature in the business and broader community.

Our Association Values are an important guide to members, the business and broader community about who we are and what we stand for as members of National Speakers. Our Values are guiding principles to assist our individual and collective thoughts, words, decisions and actions.

In their most practical use, our Association Values are used as a reference point for decision making, particularly at board or chapter leadership level especially in regard to policy.


Our Association Core Values

Community - An understanding that we are part of a local and international community of people who use the power of the word and share the platform to enrich the potential of ourselves and others. Our community embraces generosity in sharing our gifts, talents, knowledge, expertise and experience and a willingness to respect and accept the legitimacy of alternate opinions and experiences and to strive to work together to give and receive reciprocal value.

Growth - An attitude supported by thought and action to continually challenge mediocrity in ourselves, personally and collectively in the many pursuits and facets of our lives.

Possibility Thinking - An open-mindedness to pursue the potential of success, to embrace technology and through our own personal empowerment to assist others find their own possible futures.

Integrity - To promise and commit to that which we can and ought to deliver and to deliver on those promises to the best of our abilities; to act congruently with the behaviours and messages we present on and off the platform.

Along with and above our Core Values, the ethical standards of the Association and the Code of Conduct prevail.


Our Ethics

Our History

National Speakers was originally founded as two separate but collaborative Chapters in NSW and Victoria.

Both were convened at meetings in October 1986, with an agreement to commence formally in January 1987. In Sydney at the Wentworth Hotel, John Nevin convened a meeting along with Doug Malouf, Walter Dickman, Ron Tacchi, Peter Doig, John Lane-Smith, Dianne Minter, Ted Mackness, Iven Frangi and others. A few days later in Melbourne at the MCG Hotel, Gary Glenn was joined by Winston Marsh, Colin Bockman, Wayne Berry, Lisa McInnes-Smith, Leonie Collins, Daniel Johnston and others.

Several of these founding members, and others such as Allan Pease CSP, had been members of the National Speakers Association in the USA and were keen to see our own Association developed.

The Queensland Chapter commenced in 1987. After a brief recess it recommenced in 1993.

In 1993 Ann Villiers and Kerry Nairn co-founded the ACT Chapter, with support from the NSW Chapter. In 1994, with the zeal of Robyn Henderson CSP as driver and supporter, the South Australian Chapter commenced under the leadership of David Griggs PM, Past National President, Life Member and Nevin Award Recipient. In the same year, also with Robyn’s support the West Australian Chapter launched under the leadership of David Julian Price, CSP, Past National President, Life Member and Nevin Award Recipient.
