Welcome from the National President
Kia Ora, and welcome to the National Speakers Association of New Zealand (NSANZ). As many of you will know, “Kia ora” means ‘be well or healthy’ and it’s our aim at NSANZ to help people build healthy speaking businesses, whether that be keynote speaking, MCing, facilitation, or training that leads to coaching or other product sales.
At a recent meeting, I was asked by a first-time visitor what the benefits of joining NSANZ would be. In a nutshell, we:
- Provide collegial support for our speaking ‘tribe’.
- Offer regular meetings in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch for our members to be exposed to both national and international speakers.
- Provide opportunities each year for professional development such as our annual Professional Speakers Academy Intensive.
- Help you to ‘keep on track’ with the efforts you’re making to create and build your successful professional speaking business.
