Kathleen D. Pagana Earns the
Certified Speaking Professional Designation

(May 17, 2017)—Kathleen D. Pagana, Keynote Speaker & Best-Selling Author, has earned the CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) designation. Established in 1980, the CSP is the speaking profession's international measure of speaking experience and skill. About 12 percent of the speakers worldwide hold this professional designation.

"The CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) designation is the highest earned specification that can be achieved by a member of the National Speakers Association or Global Speakers Federation Member Associations," says 2016-2017 NSA President John B. Molidor, Ph.D., CSP. "Achieving the CSP designation is no easy task; professional speakers must show documented proficiency over a minimum of five years, must receive positive evaluations from their clients, and must be evaluated and affirmed through a peer review process. When meeting professionals hire a Certified Speaking Professional, they can be assured the speaker brings to the table a high-level of expertise and competency, superior speaking ability, and a proven track record of professionalism and success."

Kathleen is an Emeritus Professor of Nursing at Lycoming College. Her speaking business primarily targets health care professionals with a focus on leadership, life balance, and professional etiquette. She also helps clinicians improve their presenation skills. Her main clients include professional associations, healthcare organizations, and college/universities.
