Mission & Vision
This project was grew out of the idea that as three Toastmasters, Sunder Rajan, Vincent J. Kellsey & Daniel A. Janssen wanted to get paid to speak, to developed a public speaking career that we document the steps taken so that others may benefit by our experience. The project took on a new vision when we realized its potential and decided to add extensive research and create a tool that would help build the industry, equip individuals considering this career and provide more seminar material for the three Toastmasters.
The project took another step further when one of these Toastmasters, the President of Metro Speakers used this idea to complete his Advanced Leader designation and run it through the High Performance Leadership program. It has been a desire for the many advanced speakers in this club to have a greater challenge to enhance their communications skills. Often the questions that often came up was “How do I go pro?” So we decided to develop a tool that would be a valuable resource for individuals desiring to speak to the public as a professional and adding value to the industry as a whole. Equipping and empowering individuals through education, experience and resources to bring to the world their ideas, their experience, their opinion and their passions. Thus the “Professional Speaker Guide” was born.
