CPAE <em>SPEAKER HALL OF FAME</em>® MEMBERS

Before I joined NSA, I was struggling to build my speaking business. I couldn’t fill my calendar, get in front of the right decision-makers or charge enough to cover my expenses. Then, in 2011, I joined National Speakers Association and very quickly, everything changed.

– Sally Hogshead, CPAE
