“The NSA Speaker Academy was instrumental in helping me create a foundation for my speaking and training business. I developed a real world sense of the industry, marketplace and opportunity combined with the ability to network and engage with other people focused on building a similar business. The Academy insights were critical to shaping my launch strategy and I wouldn’t have the business I have today without it.”

-Ryan Estis, graduate
