Stef du Plessis Founder’s Award​

This is the Highest Honour of the PSASA

This Award recognises a PSASA member whose outstanding contribution to the association and to the speaking industry over the years have earned the utmost respect, honour and admiration in the association and the profession.

Their actions have consistently epitomised sharing, guiding, supporting and encouragement of other members.

They have been instrumental in growing the speaking industry as a whole.
Their commitment to excellence and professionalism as a professional speaker provides a role model for us all.
