Certified Speaking Professional

Conferred by the National Speakers Association (NSA), the Certified Speaking Professional designation (CSP) is the speaking industry’s international measure of professional skill.

Worldwide, fewer than 10% of speakers have earned this title, which speaks volumes about just how difficult it is for a speaking professional to meet the strict qualifying criteria.

If you see the letter CSP associated with a speaker’s name, know they indicate a seasoned professional who can deliver outstanding value.

Read on to discover three significant benefits of booking a CSP for your next conference.

3 Massive Benefits of Booking a Certified Speaking Professional

1. Helps You Maximize Opportunity

Every conference represents a fantastic opportunity to inspire your guests, educate them, and share important messages about your organization.

However, if your speaker fails to connect with the audience and showcase ideas in a way that captivates guests, it can drastically minimize the impact of your event.

To earn the certified speaking professional designation, speakers have to serve a minimum of 100 clients within a 5-year time frame. Also, they need to list at least 250 paid speaking engagements within the same period.

Therefore, CSPs are highly-experienced speakers who have proven their ability to capture and hold the audience’s attention.

They will bring critical topics to life and inspire participants to implement the ideas shared on stage, thus helping you maximize the impact of your event.

2. Increases the Perceived Value of Your Conference

Your guests will assess the value of your conference based on the topics and competence of the speaker who presented them.

To be granted the CSP title, speakers must receive fantastic ratings from their clients and be committed to delivering outstanding service with every one of their presentations.

If you book a CSP for your event, your audience will be impressed by their professionalism and skills and have a favorable perception of your event.

3. A Certified Speaking Professional Will Work to Support Your Goals

To be granted the CSP title, speakers must subscribe to NSA’s Code of Professional Ethics.

As part of their pledge to ethical behavior, speakers are committed to strive to best “understand each client’s organization, approaches, goals, and culture in advance of a presentation.”

What this means is that a CSP will go to extreme lengths to ensure they professionally apply their expertise to meet your needs and contribute to the success of your event.
