The core purpose of the Professional Speakers Australia is to help its members achieve speaking excellence and build exceptional speaking careers. Below is a list of benefits that PSA membership offers designed to fulfil this purpose.
Each of the four state PSA groups (NSW, QLD, VIC and WA) run bi-monthly events which are a great opportunity to make local industry connections with fellow speakers and learn from featured expert presenters.
The PSA resource vault is an online portal designed to give members exclusive access to a world-first library of video content and articles covering a range of topics including topic development, platform mechanics, presenting and performing, authorship and product development, and managing a speaking business.
These quarterly gatherings are open to CSPs and any presenter earning in excess of $300,000pa from speaking-related activities.* Targeted at highly experienced speakers, these closed-door events are a rare opportunity to share openly with and learn from the best in the industry.
*Eligibility must be confirmed through a signed Statutory Declaration
