Dear PSASA Members and Friends,

We would be thrilled if you could join us on 8 February for our chapter meeting. Please note that the venue is different from last month and that a full meal will be served at 18:30.

First Speaker

George Walther – Traveling Twain of the 21st Century

I seek to span the globe in both my professional and my personal life.  For 34 years, I’ve been presenting keynotes and workshops for businesses ranging from Microsoft and Starbucks to dental groups and entrepreneurs. My business-boosting books are published in multiple languages throughout the world. On stage, I combine tales from my global travel adventures in 107 countries (thus far, as featured in USA Today), with my broad knowledge about running profitable, customer-centered businesses.

I’m called the “Traveling Twain of the 21st Century.” And, like Twain, I aim to deliver potent, practical lessons for commerce and for life in such a fun way that they sorta sneak up on you.

My wife and I move to and live in a different country every year, and reside there for a full year, learning about the local culture.  So, you can be pretty sure I’m not your normal tunnel-vision business guy.

Main Speaker

Mary Ovenstone  –  Male and Female brains – finally understanding the opposite sex

How many times have you wondered why women and men think and see things differently? Would you like to understand some of the actual science behind that? So that instead of trying to guess if your message as a speaker has hit the mark or not, you can actually anticipate what the different sexes will be looking for in a presentation.

Mary Ovenstone will be fascinating us with the neuroscience of male and female brains, how and why they have developed as they have and what that means for communication.

Mary has a varied and wealthy history and will bring us an incredibly engaging and thought provoking session.

Mary trained in psychotherapy in Canada and USA and has a diploma in Practitioner Coaching and an MPhil in Management Coaching from University of Stellenbosch Business School.
