Are you ready to GO PRO?!

  • Are perceived obstacles causing you to hesitate? 
  • Do you sometimes feel like you’re alone and flying blind in your efforts to sustain or grow a speaking business? 
  • Are you not quite sure where to start, what to do next, or who you can talk to?

​The truth is we all face obstacles on our journey as professional speakers, but with NSA, we are not alone and never have to feel like we are flying blind!

This month’s meeting will offer insights on the ups and downs of the speaking business with Sam Silverstein, CSP, CPAE, Hall of Fame Keynote Speaker. Sam will open up and share insights into the personal transitions, pivots, downsides, and successes of his own professional speaking business. During this open-forum format Sam will also answer YOUR questions, drawing from his wisdom and expertise gained over 29 years as a top-rated Keynote Speaker.

Following Sam, we’ll take a deeper dive into some specific speaker dilemmas during our Speaker Solution Round-Tables. Grab this opportunity to get to know other attendees as you solve potential speaker problems in small-group mastermind/networking exercises.

So, bring your questions . . . we’ll have answers!

And b​e sure to let us know if you’ll be staying for lunch, which follows the Round-Table session!


Reserve your spot for this amazing program designed to inspire and energize today!
