About this event

A warm welcome to PSA North West from our Regional President, James Perryman and the gang.

The PSA theme for 2023 is “Just One Thing” and we’ll continue to bring that to life to support your personal, professional and business growth!

This months’ agenda will give you the opportunity to hear two fantastic speakers, whose talks will inspire you to re-align to your purpose, communicate confidently and forge meaningful connections to help others around you – as well as giving you time to relax, connect and network over some food and drink.

Location: The Village Hotel, 110 Centre Park Square, Warrington, WA1 1QA.


With his keynote talk “Stand well back”, our main speaker Stephen Whitton shares his own tough story about how he was continually unable to be the real him, until the lid finally fell off and his life collapsed. He’ll describe how he chose a path of hope over despair, and founded a movement specifically to support mental health in predominantly masculine environments – and will light up the audience with optimism and strategies to enable them to support themselves and other around them.

In this bespoke talk for the PSA, Stephen will share his BALLS process and the magical 5-steps for re-aligning oneself to a purpose, allowing you to:

  • Stand “shoulder to shoulder” and support each other
  • Use the Rev Counter analogy to check in with each other
  • Apply the five steps to re-align with your purpose
