This month we look at how to stand out in a crowded market and how to do something that matters and have impact. Come along if you want to stand up, stand out and make a difference in the world.


PSA National President Chantal Cornelius is speaking on ‘Do you stand out as a speaker?’.

Do you really stand out? Or do potential clients struggle to know what makes you different and why they should book you?

As a speaker, you can’t stand out as being the best in your field unless you’re completely clear on what makes you stand out.

We work in a very competitive industry – one in which others are competing for the same speaking gigs as us. What makes you different to the others in your area? What makes you REALLY different? Traditional USPs (Unique Selling Points) do not work for speakers.

This session will introduce you to a much better and more effective way of showing your clients and prospects what makes you truly different, helping you to book the speaking engagements you really want.

  • You will understand the importance of building strong relationships with your clients.
  • You will learn why it’s not about you, but about your audience.
  • You will gain a unique insight into building emotional connections with your clients, which allow you to build the strong relationships you need.

If you want to stand out in your business, join us at this event!


We have an additional guest speaker joining us for a second keynote, along with a celebration zone and our opportunity exchange to help you speak more and speak better.

So what are you waiting for? Book your ticket now and join us this November at PSA North East!
