What is the CSP?
The Certified Speaking Professional designation, established in 1980, is the speaking industry's international measure of professional platform skill. CSP is conferred by the National Speakers Association (NSA) only on those accomplished speakers who have earned it by meeting strict criteria. 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 Certified Speaking Professional?
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 Certified Speaking Professional (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.

How Many CSPs Are There?
Less than 7% of NSA's 4000+ members hold this professional designation.

What Benefit Does a Certified Speaking Professional Bring to Your Meeting?
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. Only you can determine which speaker will best fit your needs. A Certified Speaking Professional provides a solid place with which to begin your search.

What Are the Criteria to become a Certified Speaking Professional?

  • Every CSP must... Maintain membership in NSA and subscribe to its Code of Professional Ethics.

  • Serve a minimum of 100 different clients within 5 years.

  • Present a minimum of 250 professional speaking engagements within this same 5-year period.

  • Submit testimonial letters from clients served.

  • Submit professionally prepared promotional materials.

  • Receive excellent ratings from past clients on professional performance evaluations.

  • Continue education in the professional speaking field through NSA's many educational programs.

The National Speakers Association
The NSA is an international association of more than 3500 members dedicated to the art and value of experts who speak professionally. For more than 30 years, NSA has provided its membership with resources and education designed to enhance business acumen and impact through programming that helps audience members and organizations positively address the way they work and live, change and adapt, compete and lead, prosper and perform. The CSP certification is NSA's indication that you are booking a committed professional who has a history of success with many audiences.
