Speaker Association LogosWhat is CSP?

The Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation, established in 1980, is the highest earned designation of the National Speakers Association (NSA) and the International Federation for Professional Speakers. CSP is the speaking profession’s international measure of professional platform skill, and is conferred only on those who have earned it by meeting strict criteria. Less than 10% of the speakers who belong to the International Federation for Professional Speakers hold this professional designation. The letters CSP following a speaker's name indicate a speaking professional with proven experience who understands what is required and knows how to deliver client satisfaction.

Why Should You Hire a CSP? 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 and stick firmly in the memories, attitudes and action plans of your attendees. A CSP brings a proven track record of continuing speaking experience and expertise. CSPs are committed to ongoing education, outstanding service and ethical behavior. CSPs offer wide varieties of approaches, topics and styles.

The Association NSA, a member association of the International Federation for Professional Speakers, is dedicated to advancing the art and value of experts who speak professionally. The International Federation for Professional Speakers provides nearly 5000 members with the resources and education designed to enhance the talent, ethics and business acumen of professional speakers. The CSP Certification is an indication that you are booking a committed professional who has a history of success with many audiences.
