I’m very proud to announce that on 8 July 2017, I was appointed President of the Global Speakers Federation (GSF). What an honour and a privilege this is.
After serving on the GSF leadership team for the past 4 years, I am now standing on the shoulders of some speaking giants who have filled this role before me, including the current President, Nabil Doss, pictured here as he handed me the presidential gavel at our annual meeting in Orlando recently.
The GSF exists to enhance global collaboration among speaking associations, so we can all share best practices, knowledge, ideas and expertise. There are currently 14 speaking associations around the world that are part of the Global Speakers Federation. Just this year, we were proud to welcome two new associations from Namibia and Sweden.
As GSF President, I will be visiting many of the 14 speaking associations around the world that are part of the Federation, including Asia Professional Speakers Singapore, where I was proud to be President in 2011-12. I’m looking forward to connecting with colleagues and speakers all over the world. It’s a great opportunity for sharing, growing, learning and collaborating on a global scale.
