TeamGB Olympic medallists offered speaking boost
Every TeamGB medallist at the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics is being offered one-year complimentary membership of the Professional Speaking Association (PSA), including the opportunity to attend all conferences and regional events. PSA President Derek Arden said “We are aware that some medallists will wish to move from sport to speaking. As the professional body for speakers in the UK, we are offering them help to make that career transition easier”.
PSA member and three times Olympic medallist Kriss Akabusi said “When I retired from sport I wanted to capitalize on my success by joining the speaking circuit. Being a member of the PSA, with all the incredible advice and support, has helped my speaking career enormously. I hope to see some of our great competitors become great speakers by joining Team PSA”
TeamGB medallists from both the Olympic and Paralympic games are invited to contact the PSA to receive their complimentary associate memberships by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or phoning 0845 3700 504
