What is ProTrack?


ProTrack is a multifaceted training program that provides strategies, skill development, and resources needed to build a successful professional speaking business. This is done through a hybrid learning approach that includes self-study, in-person sessions and mentoring from experienced speakers. 

The best in the business share their proven techniques and insider knowledge. You will learn how to build your brand, gain credibility as a thought leader, identify target markets, find new clients and retain current ones, and create dynamic presentations.

You will walk away with a strong, sustainable business.

ProTrack aligns with the National Speakers Association’s Model of Professional Competency:

1. Eloquence – stage and platform skills, the essential ingredients for a dynamic, eloquent presentation.

2. Enterprise – monetize your message, the business of professional speaking

3. Expertise – what you speak about and how to become the expert in your niche

4. Ethics – the guidelines governing our values, so we emulate ethical conduct as professional speakers

Is ProTrack for you?

Whether you’re an experienced speaker who wants to take your business to a higher level or you’re beginning your career in the world of professional speaking, you will learn specific strategies and acquire the tools to be successful.

In this comprehensive program, you will learn the art and business of professional speaking step-by-step.

ProTrack sessions are provided with a multimedia approach:

• Assessments, video lessons, downloads, and quizzes

The curriculum is organized in the My ProTrack Hub tool to coordinate your learning and course materials.

“NSA Ohio’s ProTrack series was so important, I not only took it once, I took it twice! I had a message that I knew I wanted to get out there. I felt alone, I didn’t know quite where to start, and I didn’t want to recreate the wheel and flounder. I benefited from it so much the first time. The second time I was able to dive deeper to re-focus on my goals that evolved. You will never regret taking ProTrack.” 
-Dr. Julia Bowlin, Physician, Author, and Founder of Personal Awareness Medicine

"As a ProTrack  participant, I gleaned extremely valuable tools, techniques, and tips from talented Professional Speakers. The time and attention that went into the design and instructional content were amazing. I highly recommend this program for all levels of speakers to enhance and hone your skills. Thank you."
– Steven Heugel, ProTrack Class XII
