Be Recognized at the Highest Level – Get Certified
Once you become a member of NSA, you can also start preparing for the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation. Conferred by the National Speakers Association, the CSP is the speaking profession's international measure of professional platform competence. When you earn your CSP designation, meeting professionals looking to hire the best of the best will see your commitment to the profession, know you have top-notch speaking ability and a track record of professionalism and success, and ultimately give you more, better bookings.
Only the top 10 percent of speakers earn this credential, which means you’ll be recognized as one of the best in your field and set yourself up for an even more successful speaking career.
The CSP designation is earned through demonstrating competence in professional standards:
- Platform skills
- Business management
