PSA North West - Be A Better Speaker #2 - Open Mic Night
PSA North West Presents Our Famous Open Mic Night
Do you want to be a fabulous speaker? Then there’s nothing better than getting as much stage time as possible, and there’s nothing better for that than our Open Mic night.
This is your chance to try something new, see if your message works, find out if you can engage an audience, or just test out a story.
We’re offering slots from 5 to 15 minutes. On the night, you get to deliver your piece and (if you want it) to get immediate and direct feedback from the assembled audience in the room, many of whom are also Professional Speakers - that’s a unique opportunity to get the sort of feedback that clients just don't give.
You can try anything you want. Fancy trying some humour? Give it a go. Have an anecdote you want to incorporate in your topic? Give it a test drive. Normally use slides and want to try your topic without? Go wild and be brave. Got some props you think might help? Use us for your audience research. Planning to have a go at Speaker Factor. Have a dry run and find out what can be improved.
Added value: If you ask us, we will also take photos and video your session, and make those available to you for your showreels or websites.
Book Now and have fun, try something new, learn new speaker skills and get fabulous feedback.
All you have to do is book your ticket and email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your slot.
Don’t fancy a speaking slot? THIS IS STILL A DON’T MISS EVENT! You will see many different speakers with different approaches, and you can still learn a lot by watching how other people do things.

That’s our evening event. BUT THERE’S MORE:
‘Grow Your Speaking Business’ FREE Mastermind Group
In the afternoon prior to the evening event we will meet from 3:30-5:30 for a Mastermind Group.
Who wants fewer bookings? No one, right? So join us for our informal mastermind group where we help each other to grow our speaking businesses and get more bookings in 2017… and what’s more it’s completely FREE.
We will meet at Ziferblat to help each other develop our plans to grow our speaking businesses, and then throughout the year we will meet again to review how well those plans are going, to hold each other to account and to help & support each other.
This is an open and informal mastermind group which is completely free. Just pay Ziferblat for your time in the meeting area, take advantage of the supplied coffee, tea and biscuits, and join in. It is only open to associates, members or fellows of the PSA, and you must also be coming to the evening event.
If you came to the last one then come along, tell us how you are getting on with your actions, and let us help you with the next steps.
To get the best out of the session we are limiting it to 10 places around the table, so ACT NOW.
