The APSS Committee

A message from our President

Better. Together.
As speakers (Keynote Speakers, Corporate Trainers, Moderators, Facilitators etc) we may work with – and influence the life of – many people, but very often we work alone. A speaker association is a place for us to come together – not as competitors, but as peers – to learn from each other, be help each other become better. APSS is a unique association full of giving personalities who genuinely want to help others become better. Join us and experience how your speaking career will go to the next level as we learn, share, mentor and push each other to develop the speaking profession in Asia. On a personal note I can share that for the first ten years of my professional speaking career I was NOT a member of any speaker association and I did fine anyway. But for the last ten years I HAVE been a member of a speaker association and I can now see how much more rewarding and valuable it is for a speaker to be part of a speaker association. Feel free to contact me to find out more about APSS, how it helped me build a global keynote career and how APSS can help you.
I look forward to meet you at one of our meetings.
