How Much Stage Time Will I Get as an Associate Member of the PSA?

20th January 2023 | By PSA Team

If you’re looking for somewhere to practice speaking on stage on a regular basis, then the PSA is not the best place to start.

Our Associate Members are able to give 10-minute ‘showcases’ at any regional event. This gives you the opportunity to deliver a short talk to get feedback from your fellow speakers. It’s also a chance for us to hear about what you do. Most regional events have just 1-2 showcase slots each month, and there is often a waiting list. You can apply to speak at any regional events, but you may have to book a few months in advance.

If you want to get great feedback to help you improve your talk and grow your reputation within the speaking industry, join us as an Associate Member and apply to speak at as many regions as you like. You can get extra stage time by volunteering at regional events – to introduce other speakers and deliver feedback for showcases – but it’s not guaranteed.  (If you’re already speaking professionally, you can join us as a Professional Member, which gives you 20 minutes of showcase time.)

If you’re new to speaking or would like more practice and stage time than the PSA can give you, we recommend attending some local Toastmaster meetings. Their meetings are designed to give more people more stage time. They can’t help you to build a business around your speaking, but they can help you to learn how to speak better in public.

The best option? Attend Toastmaster events to get more stage time and join the PSA to develop your speaking further and grow your speaking business!
