Professional Speakers Association to be launched
The president of the Global Speakers Federation and former president of the Malaysian Association of Professional Speakers (MAPS), Jonathan Low, will be in Namibia on 10-11 May to guide the launch of the Namibian Professional Speakers Association.
To aid in funding the launch of the Association, Low will host and present a Blitz Seminar at the Dome in Swakopmund on 10 May and in Windhoek at the Thule Hotel on the 11 May.
Low will present on his speciality area of Client Loyalty. He will be joined on the stage by past president of the South African Speakers Association, Gustav Gous and local Namibian Emotional Intelligence expert, Sigi Lange.
In the past Namibian companies had to rely on South Africans to present keynote speeches at company gatherings and events. The NPSA aims at creating a professional home for all speaking professionals in Namibia.
The NPSA’s mission is to champion, support and provide resources to help develop and grow professional speakers in Namibia and the SADC region. Their mission together with the GSF is to strengthen worldwide recognition of professional speaking within the meetings industry.
The launch event of the Namibian Professional Speakers Association is scheduled for the evening of 11 of May and the exact details will be confirmed at a later date.
The NPSA will form part of the GSF which currently comprises 13 independent speaker associations representing 15 nations and individuals from over 20 countries.
