History of Professional Speakers Celebration Day
With the purpose of recognizing and acknowledging the work of speakers around the world, Professional Speakers Celebration Day was founded in 2023 by the Global Speakers Federation (GSF), which represents more than a dozen different organizations throughout twenty different countries all over the planet.
The date for Professional Speakers Celebration Day has been designated as March 14, due to its association with National Pi Day. This connection comes from the fact that one of the leaders of the National Speakers Association has the motto: “Don’t worry about how we divide up the pie. There’s enough for everyone – let’s just make a bigger pie.”
With that in mind, Professional Speakers Celebration Day was established to honor and support those who make their living as public speakers, while also working to grow and advance this profession.
