Why you pursued the CSP, why it is important for you or what you think it can do for your business
Having the letters CSP behind my name will provide any potential client with the peace of mind that they are hiring someone with a proven track record of speaking expertise, professionalism, outstanding service, success and ethical behaviour.
This award indicates my profession’s recognition of my dedication, hard work and commitment to my profession and clients for the last 15 years.
It demonstrates competence & professional standards as a speaking professional – thus providing the client with a level of trust and guarantee in whom they are booking. Specifically internationally, many booking agents if given a choice between 2 prospective speakers – will book the speaker that is a CSP over the one that is not.
Being one of only two certified women CSP’s in South Africa and a handful worldwide is highly significant and can elevate my business to a new international level. Less than 10% of the speakers who belong to the Global Speakers Federation hold this designation, so now being 1 of 8 total CSP’s in SA highlights us on the international map of speaker recognition.
