Top Professional Speaker Off To Russia

Top Professional Speaker Off To Russia

One of New Zealand’s top speakers, a member of Professional Speakers NZ, Pat Armitstead, laughingly known as The Joyologist, has been selected to tour Russia based on her passion for setting up Laughter Clubs and helping people to enjoy their lives, and her professional speaking expertise.

Professional Speakers NZ is a group of the top 30 speakers in New Zealand who make a full time living out of speaking to groups at breakfasts, all-day seminars, workshops, after dinner speeches, and conference presentations. The New Zealand group is linked to a similar organisation in the United States, in Great Britain, and in Europe, where people who have a skill and expertise in making a difference through their speaking presentations encourage, share and motivate each other.

Pat Armitstead is an active member within New Zealand, and the support of Professional Speakers NZ in helping Pat tour Russia has been well received.

“Pat’s selection is another example of the high calibre of professional speakers there is in New Zealand,” comments Richard Gee, Executive Director of Professional Speakers NZ. “New Zealand audiences love New Zealand based speakers who have got great messages to impart, enthral, and enhance audiences all around the world.”
