Hello to our global speaking community!
I am very excited to be serving as your Global Speakers Federation President during such a dynamic time in the advancement of the speaking profession.
This next year will include new levels of international awareness in the speaking profession, and an elevated understanding of what it means to be a professional speaker making a difference on a global level.
This last year as we promised, we have worked hard as a leadership team to provide a solid foundation for some major new initiatives, that in turn will create some exciting added value and benefits for our members. My aim this year is to drive through these initiatives to successful conclusion and to ensure we maximise the benefits to you as a member of the Federation and of the Global Speakers Network.
I truly believe there never has been a better time to become more involved in the Global Speakers Federation. As speakers, we are likely to speak to multi-cultural audiences most of the time, whether virtually from our offices over Skype or by getting on a plane to cross a border to visit another country. The Federation supports our members through education, networking and sharing of best practice to help you achieve whatever you want to achieve with your international speaking business.
We have our Global Speakers Summit this year in December in Vancouver, Canada and I hope that lots of you will join us there for the most exciting Summit yet! Check out the link here……
I am planning to attend every one of our member association’s national conventions in this next 12 months. We have a very bright future ahead and I look forward to meeting many of you and sharing all the developments on my travels.
Thank you for your continued support for the GSF.
