Certified Speaking Professional (CSP)

Some of our Professional Members are Certified Speaking Professionals. The Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation is the speaking profession’s international measure of professional platform skill.

An applicant for CSP is independently audited by an external agency. The audit evaluates five years of documented business practices including ethics, customer service, client ROI, financial review, and marketing. Applicants must present a minimum of 250 speaking engagements within this five-year period. Ratings from satisfied clients also play a significant part in choosing those who will receive the title. The CSP is awarded to professional speakers who meet all the criteria in this rigorous independent audit.

CSP Global / Global Speaking Fellow


Some of our Professional Members are also designated CSP Global or Global Speaking Fellow (GSF). It’s the same designation.

CSP Global / GSF is awarded by the Global Speakers Federation. Although the CSP is a measure of professional platform competence, it doesn’t specially focus on a speaker’s ability to successfully take their business across continents and cultures. ­This is where the CSP Global / GSF adds value. by recognizing some very specific global core competencies such as global communication, global business competency, global travel competency and global events competency which define the challenges and reality of doing business around the world. Of course, holding a CSP is the first criteria in applying for the CSP Global / GSF designation.
