Mid-Term Convention

Friday 2nd October 2020‎‎‏‏‎ ‎


‏‏‎ ‎ - 17:00 SAST/GMT+2

To all our members, you do not want to miss our Speak to the Future themed mid-term convention coming up in October. It will be the first PSASA convention to be staged entirely virtually. As such, it is an ideal opportunity to set the stage for:


  • The future of the speaking profession
  • How to boost a speaking career in virtual space
  • Leading in disruptive times
  • The demands that future trends and technologies will make on the speaking professional


From business plans to business continuity, from use of voice to use of space, from stagecraft to screencraft, the event will not only provide a fascinating insight into the state of speaking but will also be a critical contribution to its future.


Come and #Collaborate with us, #CelebrateSuccess and #CoCreateAmazing!
