Dear PSASA members,
Please join us at Woodhill Estate on February the 20th for our Chapter Meeting, 18:15 for 18:30. This chapter meeting will host Pretoria’s entrants to the Speaker Factor competition, as well as an open discussion about the topics we as Pretoria guests and members would like to see for the upcoming year.
The Speaker Factor Qualifying Round
What is the competition all about? If you are an aspiring speaker trying to make your mark in this highly competitive field then The Speaker Factor is the answer to your dreams!
Not only do you get to profile yourself amongst your peers but the ultimate prize gives you access to coaching by two of the country’s top professional speakers as well propels your status by positioning you as the keynote speaker at the PSASA 2020 National Convention.
The Speaker Factor is a PSASA competition for emerging speakers and open to all of our Associate Members. Entry is via your Chapter with qualifying competitions taking place during January and February 2019 and semi-finals and finals taking place during the PSASA Annual Convention being held in April.
Each PSASA Chapter has been invited to put forward the qualifiers representing their specific Chapter (2 per chapter and 3 for Gauteng). Each chapter qualifier enters the National Semi-Finals at the Convention for a place in the National Finals at the same Convention. Contestants need to have registered and be present to participate.
Entries are open to Associate members, and can be completed here: https://www.psasouthernafrica.co.za/events/the-speaker-factor-registration/
Open Discussion on Desired Topics
Once a year the Pretoria chapter hosts an informal discussion around our wants and desires for the upcoming year. In the discussion, all members and guests are welcome to raise topics they would like the Chapter to focus on, which guides our invitations to speakers for Chapter meetings and events hosted separately.
