Speaker selection is one of the most important elements in a successful event. Selecting the right speaker for your meeting can be a daunting task, as speakers are available in every fee range and specialty topic. This is why you should hire a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), the speaking industry’s international measure of professional platform skill.

A CSP brings a proven track record of continuing speaking experience and expertise. Only 12 % of the 5,000+ speakers who belong to the Global Speakers Federation hold this professional designation.
