Come join us at PSA Yorkshire in June for a fabulous Saturday morning of talks packed with insights and entertainment. If you haven’t come along before, you can visit us the first time for free!
We will learn to Speak More with Jackie Barrie as we learn to create a website that gets us bookings and demonstrates the value we bring to our clients.
Bernie will help us to Speak Better as he shows us how to use props effectively during our talks, keynotes and workshops.
Finally Michael Brodie will inspire us to make lasting and positive changes so that we continue to grow as speakers.
Jackie Barrie – Avoid Homepage Disaster
I am delighted to welcome Jackie Barrie to our region. She is a speaker, trainer, and copywriter who specialises in writing without waffle. She has written 3 books, over 1,000 blog posts, and more than one hundred websites.
She will share with us her 4x4x4 approach to your speaker home page. It includes:
- 4 objectives for your homepage
- 4 words NOT to use
- 4 elements to include on your homepage
- Learn tips, tricks, and techniques to help your website be found by search engines.
- Discover how to get your website visitors to take the action you want them to take
- Leave with a checklist that you can use after the meeting to rate your own homepage.
A website is the key online marketing tool for all businesses, so if you are designing a new one for your speaking business, or think your existing one might need refreshing then come along and listen to Jackie guide us through the essential things to consider.

Michael Brodie - Let’s All Go A&M to Success
Michael will inspire you in this talk to look at your life and use the power of Acronym and Metaphor to make positive and lasting changes. Michael is a 14-year veteran of the Armed Forces. Having come through dark pits, his true passion is to “Shine a Powerful Light” through his coaching and speaking business.
Showcases are for the benefit of all members, from associate to fellow. It is a learning experience not only for the speaker but also for the audience. Don’t miss this chance to support a member and to enhance your own learning.
In addition to our speakers, we will have our Celebration Zone and the chance to network with speakers of all levels.
A new addition to our meeting will be a “Summary in Song” by Eva Doyle, as she closes the session with a short song. You don’t want to miss that!
Looking forward to seeing you there!
