First European Speaking (Un)-Convention
Surprise your audience. Share your secrets. Build your strategy.
PSA Holland invites you to a joined European convention of the PSA chapters Netherlands and Belgium: Antwerp, march 9th – march 11th 2017
Un-conventional in setup & flow
Big conventions like NSA and PSA Mega have their very own charmes. We all have great memories to these conventions and looking already forward to the next ones.
Having smaller chapters in Holland & Belgium on the other side gives us a different unique opportunity: to experiment with un-conventional formats and wow the audience with unexpected impulses. Away from sitting in a conference room with no daylight and selfcentered Keynotes. Our emotional selling proposition is putting exchange in the limelight and enable dialogue & collaboration in bright daylight.
HOW is during these 2 un-conventional days as important as the WHAT – the format counts as much as the speaker and the reputation. In Antwerp you are gonna see much lees of classical “KeyNotes” (we rather safe that for our clients) and more experimental formats from BarCamp to Collaborative Labs to interviews and - a presidential debate. With a catwalk stage and framed by a Convenience Bar.
Un-conventional in Ideas & inspiration
As much as we go for a variety of different formats, as much we want to give our guests as much practical experience as possible: lots of moving around, sitting around as little as possible, talking to different people at every workshop. Learnings will come packaged in various formats, too. All ready to put into speaker-practice instantly.
Un-conventional in expectations
We’ve chosen “Suspense, Surprise, Strategy” as our 2017 (un)-convention theme to support this kind of different mindset. The speakers we invited were selected by how well they are able to share their expertise directly with their fellow speakers. Currently we’re working on matching the great content with the respective formats and turn a puzzle of ideas into a memorable and surprising program. Soon to be visited @ our website: http://www.professionalspeakingconvention.com
Un-conventional in surroundings & culture
For all who have been with us in Antwerp in the past know that beer & food in Belgium are a class of its own. In fact, its gods hidden kitchen. We plan for relaxed but stylish reunion of old friends and buddies and a welcoming party for all guests from the Speaking world who are in for an un-conventional 2 days. We are looking forward to welcoming you to an un-conventional speaker event.
