The program exposes you to experts in the speaking business and aligns with the National Speakers Association for “E” model of service involving: Expertise, Eloquence, Enterprise, and Ethics.

Through our intentional curriculum, and professional guidance, you will receive the tools and gain experience to avoid costly mistakes as well as help hone your craft of storytelling, stage presence, and valuable business knowledge. You can expect to explore your growing career in a supported, structured, fun, and safe environment. Academy members work at their own pace. Most accelerate to professional level within a year, but everyone has up to 24 months to complete the process.

One of the most valuable services offered by NSA-WI is the “Speakers Development Lab.”  All members from Past National Presidents and CPAE’s to new candidate members are welcome to attend. The Lab operates much like a Hollywood “Actors Studio” where speakers, facilitators, seminar leaders, those who sell products or services through public presentations, etc. can go to try out new material, revise current material, practice delivery techniques, etc.

Our goal for the Speakers Lab is to take speakers, facilitators, teacher/leaders at their current level of skill, impact, fee level, etc., and help them move up to the next level. Both those speaking, and observers benefit from the Lab, and the net effect is to increase the skills and impact of each participant.
