With such a strapline and lots of guidance on running a succesful speaking/training business, the Professional Speaking Association might be just the ticket for some scicommers. There’s a Midlands regional that meets monthly in the centre of Birmingham.
September’s event, on 13th, is the annual Speaker Factor competition where new members have just 5 mins to do a speech on their chosen topic. So it’s a good event to attend to see multiple speakers and the diversity. Your first visit is free, making this a perfect choice of getting to know more about it.
