About this event

A warm welcome to PSA North West from our Regional President, Kerry Lockyer and the crew.

The PSA theme for 2024 is “Stand Out” and we’ll continue to bring that to life to support your personal, professional and business growth!

This months’ agenda will help you to focus on turning your important ‘gigs’ into lifelong relationships, and recognise the value from fostering resilience, openness, and self-awareness with organisations you work in and/or with – 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.

Room: “Motivation”, Lower ground floor – head towards the gym area.

Keynote Speaker – Lee Warren

The ‘holy grail’ of professional speaking is repeat bookings, but many speakers work from gig to gig, always searching for the next event and the next client.

They have built trust and credibility from scratch when they could and should be focusing on turning those ‘gigs’ into lifelong relationships.

In this keynote masterclass Lee will share his experience from over 13 years of professional speaking to help you turn ‘gigs’ into ‘clients’, so you’ll leave the session knowing…

  • How to look for the right opportunities to turn gigs into clients
  • How to price yourself accurately for repeat business
  • How to communicate before, during, and after the gig
  • Why you always have at least two ‘audiences’ and how to deliver for both of them
  • How to build relationships with different types of bookers, such as bureaus, event managers, and direct corporates


Also speaking on the night is certified Coach and Chartered Marketer, Marina Ibrahim, who will be sharing her showcase talk “The inner game of EDI”.
