What is a Certified Speaking Professional?
The Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation, conferred by the National Speakers Association (NSA) and the International Federation for Professional Speakers, is the speaking profession's international measure of professional platform skill.
The CSP designation is earned by the top 10% of speakers through demonstrating competence in a combination of standards:
- Professional platform skills;
- Professional business management;
- Professional education; and
- Professional association.
Speakers must be members of NSA or another Global Speaking Federation organization for at least three years and complete a rigorous application process to earn the CSP designation.
