In this session, Raymond will help aspiring speakers and trainers discover how to be accredited as a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) and realize the personal & business benefits as a CSP.

What is the CSP ?

The Certified Speaking Professional® (CSP) designation, established in 1980, is the speaking industry's international measure of professional platform skill.

CSP is conferred throughout the Global Speakers Federation only on those who have earned it by meeting strict criteria.  The letters CSP following a speaker's name indicate a competent speaking professional with proven experience who understands what is required and knows how to deliver client satisfaction.  Fewer than ten percent of the more than 5,000 speakers who belong to the Global Speakers Federation hold this professional designation.

Join Raymond, as he shares his personal CSP journey as well as practical steps on how to prepare, document and submit your CSP application to the National Speakers Association for the qualification exercise, assessment and accreditation approval process.

There are currently only 4 Malaysian speakers who have received this global distinction. Learn how to become the next CSP from Malaysia by joining our MAPS at Work event on September 19th, 2014, in conjunction with our 13th Annual General Meeting.
