Seeking Speakers, Trainers and Consultants in Austin, Texas? - Check out the National Speakers Association Local Chapter

If your company is seeking a consultant, trainer, or speaker,... a great place to start your search is the Austin Chapter of the National Speakers Association.

The chapter is home to many of Austin's most experienced professionals in the speaking and training business, and their expertise covers a wide variety of topics.  Many also consult with businesses and coach individuals.  All the local professional members are also national NSA members.

I am an advocate of professionals supporting their industries.  I am an active member of the National Speakers Association, but if I was a locksmith I would be involved with the National Locksmiths Association.  Many rationalize excuses as to why they are too good for their industry groups, but when you hire someone who supports their trade associations, they are pledging to a set of standards.   No matter what someone does for a living, I admire those who stand up for their profession.

While you may not always find the right match for your company's needs, NSA Austin is a great place to begin.  More information at

***This advice goes for any city.  Start looking for your next trainer or keynote speaker through your local NSA chapter, or visit the national NSA website.

Have A Great Day

I work for an association and our executive director will not hire speakers for our conference who are not members of the National Speakers Association, as it makes no sense to hire vendors to as a trade group who do not belong to their own association.
