Global Speakers Federation (GSF)

In 1998, an international association (the International Federation for Professional Speakers) was formed to link all current and future national associations under an independent umbrella structure for increased collaboration, all with equal rights. In 2009, the name of the association was changed to Global Speakers Federation. The member nations are currently USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa, Germany, Holland, France, Belgium and Brazil.
The GSF is a growing organisation, and APSS’s membership is your gateway to the worldwide speaking profession in local markets across distant lands. The GSF website at will help you access the speaking profession across borders, and support the development of our worldwide professional network.
You are part of an ever-expanding profession. Demand for the talent and wisdom of professional speakers is increasing in new markets around the world.
