Jo’burg Chapter Meeting
18 Nov 2021 @ 19:00 - 21:00 SAST
Dear members, colleagues and friends
This month, we’re Going Global. We have two speakers from other professional speakers’ associations from around the world to give you a fresh perspective on speaking from different economic and social climates, amid the pandemic. Expect actionable insights into globalising your speaking business.
From PSA UK, we have Birmingham Region President DARREN HARRIS, author and founder of Unblind the Mind. He will speak to us about perspectives you can use to create a global business, and how to turn your losses into wins. He is also the most capped England Blind Footballer, with 162 appearances for the FA.
Co-founder of PSA India and founding president of PSAI Delhi Chapter VIKAS JAIN will speak on the “secret behind world-class”. He will tell us how to analyse our online presence, and fine-tune it to become more appealing to an international audience. These secrets will provide a sneak peek into his upcoming book, “Be World-Class”.
These two sessions will provide you with tools to go global, how you can turn losses into wins, and how to be a world-class speaker.

Learnings from the last meeting
Abigail showed us how you can use your smartphone to take professional pictures, as well as what kinds of pictures will work for different situations. Liz gave us insights into how we can build our voices and amplify our speaker stories, and how to be more human-centric when we’re not on stage.
