For emerging, aspiring & current professional speakers and business owners ready to turbocharge their careers
Whether you’re an experienced speaker who wants to take your career to a higher level or are considering a career in the exciting and lucrative world of professional speaking, you can learn specific strategies and gain tools to be successful through NSA Northern California chapter’s Speakers Academy program.
Experienced session leaders and speakers share proven techniques and insider knowledge to show you how to turn your expertise into topics that get bookings. Learn the business and art of speaking during this step-by-step nine-month program held on Saturdays, 9AM to 5:00PM at Homewood Suites in Palo Alto, CA.
Selection Process: The Academy selection panel will review applications and choose only enough candidates to fill the available program openings, plus alternates.
Some of the benefits of our program include:
Participants receive presentation skills coaching from several speech experts.
We know that every speaking business is different and aim to provide students with a variety of business models to best meet their needs.
Students receive materials at every session that can be referenced again and again.
In between class sessions, participants are encouraged to form mastermind groups and develop their topics, marketing pieces, and build their networks.
We help students design their path to achieving professional membership in the National Speakers Association.
A Unique Opportunity: The NSANC Speakers Academy has been created by speakers for speakers. Every element is customized for professional speaking and provides relevant information that can be used immediately. Presenters are successful speakers who share their craft, passion and enthusiasm for speaking along with key tools, techniques and samples of items they use in their own businesses. Hands-on workshops, participant presentation “showcases” and detailed workbooks create an experience-rich learning environment. This is the thirteenth year of this unique program!
Each session is jammed full of information. Years later I still discover gems in my Academy notebook that help me as my business grows.

A year of the Academy is like getting an MBA in the business aspects of professional speaking!
