Why would I want to join the APS?

The APS understands that choosing a career path of being a professional speaker is quite a lonely vocation with few opportunities to learn how to better your offering. As such, the APS run a selection of programs throughout the year to help advise speakers on how to take their career path to the next level and provide that much craved feedback and learnings from fellow speakers.

Do you provide advice to speakers over the phone or by email?
