PSASA 2021 CONVENTION

Overview

The PSASA 2021 convention is being held at the Devonvale Wine Estate near Stellenbosch in the Western Cape from the 16th to the 18th April. The theme is NEXT . Next is a word that defines the speaking profession in 2021. It is today, tomorrow, and the future. It is certainty and uncertainty. It is strategy, planning, and execution. It is both the next big thing and the smallest nuances of how the world is changing. The next phase in our profession and our careers may be different for each individual, but it cannot be the same as it was before 2020. Especially in this time of radical change and fundamental shifts in society and the economy globally, our focus must be on what comes next, what we plan to do next, and what our clients need next. In short, the  PSASA NEXT Convention 2021 will guide you in what happens … next. 

The convention is a hybrid event meaning there will be live and virtual speakers and delegates. We have a fantastic line up of live and virtual speakers from different countries around the world, as well as some of the best speakers in South Africa. 50 people are expected to attend the live event and other delegates will be accommodated on the virtual platform.

Masterminds

The growth and active participation in the PSASA community both in terms of guest speakers and members can be attributed to our structured support programmes that have been very successful in producing results for the individual members and the association as a whole. A mastermind is a group of peers, collaborating and supporting each other to learn and apply what they have learned to further their careers. – These masterminds are not official chapters of PSASA, but hosted by PSASA members. Generally PSASA masterminds are open to non-members as well as members of PSASA. 

These are :

  • Book Writers Mastermind for Speakers
  • Podcasting Mastermind for Speakers
  • Virtual and Hybrid Speakers Mastermind
  • Virtual Mastermind for Women Speakers
