Stand Out is the theme for the PSA in 2024, and our first meeting at PSA Birmingham of the year will enable you to consider what you will do to bring your speaking to the next level. This is the theme for the year established by PSA National President Chantal Cornelius, who was our main event for our December meeting. But in January we have the wonderful Michelle Mills-Porter, Membership Director and National President elect for 24/25. Monday January 8th is the day , it will be quite something….


Our meeting begins with refreshments and networking from 6.00pm, (though I’ll be there from about 545pm) with a prompt 6.30pm start with our speakers.


We will begin with two fabulous showcases, from Matt Gupwell and Saroj Bains. Matt will be showcasing “Why the question shouldn’t be “How do we not get it wrong?” rather “What does getting it right look like?” , while Saroj will share some more input from her sale development sessions. Both provide opportunities for learning and feedback.


Then, after a short break…
Our PSA Membership Director Michelle Mills-Porter will share her latest keynote.. more details to come soon!


Join us for a fun, valuable, and exciting interactive event with lots of learning and some fab speaking, at our now regular venue – The Arden Hotel, Coventry Road, Bickenhill, Solihull, B92 0EH. This is right next door to the NEC, walkable from Birmingham International Station and seconds from the M42.

This promises to be an incredible event that will add some real value to your speaking business, and indeed the rest of your life! So get your tickets early to avoid missing out!
