Bernadette Griffiths: As a relatively new member of the NSANZ I am delighted to be mixing and mingling with like-minded speakers. Through GSF I look forward to broadening my contacts throughout the world and sharing new ideas and thoughts with you all.
Helen Turnbull: Association and Federation membership has benefited me greatly as it continues to enhance my speaking business, allows me to learn from the best and to continually raise the bar on my own work. It also provides a sense of community around the world.
Ghislaine Labelle: Have greater opportunities to work internationally and improve my skills
Beth Terry: The collegiality, camaraderie, and enthusiasm of our Association meetings is like jumping into a warm bath. Speakers "get" each other, and this group is so supportive and wonderful in sharing knowledge and experience. It can be a tough, cold world out there. Coming "home" to an NSA meeting is heaven. I have yet to go to a Federation meeting, yet I've met many wonderful members of the various associations belonging to GSF, and I am sure the atmosphere is the same. It's great to belong!
Andy Lopata: I have been a Member and then Fellow of the PSA for nine years. Both my speaking ability and my business have benefited substantially as a result. I have learnt so much from watching, sharing and listening to other speakers.
I doubt I would be doing what I am now without the PSA.
We have established relationships, and/or share members, with international groups who serve the speaking profession or support the meetings industry:
