Certified Speaking Professional (CSP)

What is CSP?
The letters CSP following a speaker’s name stand for Certified Speaking Professional.  They indicate a speaking professional with proven experience, who understands what is required and knows how to deliver client satisfaction. CSP is the international standard agreed upon by the Global Speakers Federation, an organization comprised of professional speaking associations worldwide, including the National Speakers Association (NSA), to represent competence in the speaking profession. The CSP designation was established in 1980, and is conferred only on those who have earned it by meeting strict criteria.

What Are the Criteria?
Every CSP must...


Be a member in good standing of NSA. They must adhere to NSA’s 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 NSA’s professional performance evaluations.


Continue their education in the professional speaking field.

How Many CSPs Are There?
Less than 7% of the Global Speakers Federation members have earned this professional designation.  Jeff is the only Economist in the world to have earned the CSP designation.

The National Speakers Association
NSA, a member association of the Global Speakers Federation, is dedicated to advancing the art and value of experts who speak professionally.  The Global Speakers Federation provides more than 5000 members with the resources and education designed to enhance the talent, ethics and business acumen of professional speakers.  The CSP Certification is an indication that you are booking a committed professional who has a history of success with many audiences.
