Bringing professionalism into your speaking on every level will be the theme running through PSA Birmingham’s November meeting, coming up on Monday November 6th.

Our meeting begins with refreshments and networking from 6.00pm, (though I’ll be there from about 545pm) with a prompt – and slightly earlier – 6.20pm start with our speakers.


We will begin with two fabulous showcases, from Paul Devlin and Jason Archdale.


We will then have the excellent Charlotte Jones, fresh from the launch from her book ‘From Fatigue to Freedom’ we can expect a lively speech – and to feel livelier as a result!


Then, after a short break…


James Perryman’s super main event speech: Be Yourself. Not them. Be here. Not When.
In the pursuit of happiness and success, it can become normal to pin all of your hopes and dreams to a destination.

A destination where your goals are met, life is balanced and where you have reached “happy”.

A moment where your version of ‘high performance’ is a reality.

Or is it someone else’s destination that you’re trying to reach?

What if your happiness and success could be related to your ‘here and now’, where the destination happens as a result of who you are, what you are and everything you know and can offer?

Are you ready for your moment?

In his enlightening and raw talk “Be yourself. Not them. Be here. Not when”, James will show you how:

  • Achieving your future goals comes from believing in yourself and the actions you take today.
  • Everything you’ve learnt, experienced and done in the past, is what makes the present you.
  • ‘High performance’ should be a way of living in the present, more than a measure of the future.


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!
