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 from a speaker whose talk will inspire you to build the power you need to keep on going, find your niche and leverage your professional networks – as well as giving you time to relax, connect and network over some food, drink and a big healthy dose of festive fun!

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


Like many others, did some of the first advice you received as a speaker, include a need to change your LinkedIn profile to say “Professional Speaker” and then simply go for it…?

If only it was that easy.


6 years ago, our main speaker Joanne Lockwood received and took that advice. In her talk “From Zero to Hero – building a speaking business”, she’ll share what worked, what didn’t work and will give you some take aways to inspire you to think about building you own speaking business or growing what you have already.

Whilst talking about building brand “you”, social selling, building your portfolio, being easy to work with and inspiring your audience, Joanne will show you how to:

  • Find just one thing you can implement in your own speaking business
  • Gain the power to keep on going, in the face of everything ahead of you
  • Find your niche and how to look for opportunities
  • Maximise your PSA membership and leverage your network


Also on the night, we’ll take some time to relax, unwind and have some fantastic festive fun!
