The National Speakers Association is committed to helping its members achieve their highest levels of competence as professional speakers. To fulfill that commitment the NSA Board of Directors has adopted eight professional competencies to be mastered by our members.
The Professional Speaker Assessment Profile is a self-assessment tool designed to help you analyze your competence as a professional speaker based on these eight professional competencies.
Winning professional speakers demonstrate certain characteristics or patterns of behavior that contribute to their success. This instrument will help you determine how frequently and how effectively you demonstrate these patterns of behavior. It will help you identify strengths that you want to build on, and highlight areas where you have an opportunity for improvement.
Use the Professional Speaker Assessment Profile as a tool to benchmark your current professional level of competency. Then use it to regularly evaluate your growth and development. The result will be that you will shorten your learning curve and grow more quickly into the level of speaker you want to become.
