What makes Jane different from other speakers and executive coaches?

The truth is that there are many speakers and executive coaches to choose from. Please remember that Jane is a Certified Speaking Professional (a designation held by less than 8% of all professional speakers) and a certified master business coach (less than 5% of all coaches have this professional certification). A very skilled, quality speaker  provides tremendous amount of value to an organization. As qualified as your human resources staff may be, there is something very powerful about having a third-party professional help an organization move towards their goals. What makes us unique is that we offer a wide variety of programs. Because of this, we don’t try to squeeze your company into a “one size fits all” box. We provide customized programs for every client. Because of our broad experience, we will also be able to help you in a variety of ways. For example, you may need long-term team-building consulting. Once our clients engage us to address one area of need, they frequently request follow-up training and executive coach. We are grateful for our long-term relationships with our clients.

What is a CSP?

The Certified Speaking Professional designation, established in 1980, is the speaking industry’s international measure of professional platform skill. Less than 8% of all professional speakers hold this designation. Jane is a part of this 8%, as she is a Certified Speaking Professional.

What does it take to become a CSP?

The CSP is conferred by the National Speakers Association (NSA) only on those accomplished speakers who have earned it by meeting strict criteria. The letters CSP following a speaker’s name indicate a speaking professional with proven experience.

What is the Strict Criteria?

  • Maintain membership in NSA and subscribe to its Code of Professional Ethics. Serve a minimum of 100 different clients within 5 years.
  • Present a minimum of 250 professional speaking engagements within this same 5-year period.
  • Submit testimonial letters from clients served. Submit professionally prepared promotional materials.
  • Receive excellent ratings from past clients on professional performance evaluations.
  • Continuing education in the professional speaking field through NSA’s many educational programs.


Why should I hire a CSP instead of any other public speaker?

It will make your job easier!

The success of your meeting will be judged largely on the caliber, professionalism and appropriateness of the topic and presenter(s) you select.

Choosing a CSP maximizes your opportunity of providing a speaker with a message that will focus, elevate and enhance the mission of your meeting.
