Welcome from National President

Greg Ward
As the National President of the Professional Speakers Association of New Zealand, I would like to personally welcome you to the organisation.

PSANZ is the peak body of the speaking industry in New Zealand and provides members with services and support to assist you in your continuing professional development in your career as a speaker and expert communicator.

As a professional industry body, we exist to support the needs and goals of our members, who comprise a group of like-minded, proven and experienced conference keynote speakers, MC’s, trainers, coaches, authors, and facilitators, who provide expert speaking services to corporations, associations and private sector, and as members, help support and lead our speaking and training industry.

As professionals, we put a high value on ethics, standards, and skill development as a way of supporting our members to help create and grow their opportunities in the National and global market places.

Our Monthly Meeting:

We warmly welcome potential members to PSANZ, particularly those who are currently working in the NZ and international markets as professional speakers yet are currently not members of our industry body.

We also welcome enquiry from those who may be somewhere along the journey of a speaking industry career – we are an inclusive, nurturing organisation, and can support you in designing a roadmap to membership.

Our monthly meetings are designed with the professional speaker in mind, particularly focusing on the business of speaking, with a diverse range of local and international experts in their industries, supporting our members across multiple areas of business such as marketing, sales, social media development, technology, web presence and more to help you to continue to develop your speaking career.

Our culture is particularly geared toward the sharing of ideas and support across the membership, and many lasting business relationships and enduring friendships have been generated by the opportunities for network and collegiality.

We are also a proudly diverse organisation and expressly invite potential members from all ethnicity, all genders, all ages and all abilities to explore becoming a member of the sole speaking association in New Zealand.

Our Speaker Café:

On the second Saturday of the month, from 9:00 am until 11 am, we have a regular, facilitated mastermind meeting where we tackle subjects surrounding the topics of Building Your Business. This is an online event designed to help you work on your speaking business – which also allows you to bring your valuable experiences to the table.

Our ethos is grounded in member participation - and as a member of PSANZ, we encourage you to share your (non IP) experiences for the benefit of fellow members. Like most other industry bodies, the more you are willing to give, the more you tend to receive.

The topics covered tend to fall across four areas:

     1.    Enterprise
     2.   Expertise
     3.   Eloquence
     4.  Ethics

We like to think of our membership as a Speaking Tribe – and our aim is to support members to continue to grow individually, which in turn leads to the upskilling of our whole professional industry. A rising tide lifts all ships.

Our Special Offer To You:

Our special offer to you is that if you are wanting to visit our meeting for the first time, please come as my guest, free of charge. Please have a look at the Events page on the website or simply drop us an email at [email protected]. And we will ensure you are registered for that meeting.
