19 Year Old President of NSANZ appointed

For Immediate Release:

You Shut Up!: 19 Year Old President of NSANZ appointed

The Internationally known National Speakers Association, with chapters all over the world and distinguished members such as Allan Pease, Ngahihi o te ra Bidois, Lou Heckler, Mike Handcock and Scott Friedman, has recently appointed 19 year old New Zealand bestselling author Eva-Maria as the youngest branch president of the Wellington Branch of the National Speakers Association of New Zealand (NSANZ) and possibly the youngest NSA branch president worldwide.

Despite her age, Eva-Maria has been one to break a number of perceptions while on her mission to help improve 1 million adult-teenager relationships around the world. At age 17, her first bestselling book ‘You Shut Up!’ raised eyebrows and changed perspectives all over the world about how a teenager’s point of view can dramatically help improve and help get better relationships between adults and teenagers.

She has been a teen mentor all throughout her school years, and is a renowned family coach after her successful completion of the coaching certificate through the XL Foundation. She travels on a regular basis as an international speaker, helping society not only see past teenager stereotypes, but also teaching them how win-win situations are possible in adult-teenager relationships – from a teen’s point of view.

With plans for a TV Show in 2010, a third book, and starting a group called ‘Trust Tour Future’ to keep the dream of teenagers making a positive contribution to relationships with the adults around them, and helping other teens, Eva-Maria is in great demand, and with the National Speakers Association, she wants to make just as much of an impact in people’s lives.

The National Speakers Association supports professional speakers and those aspiring to speak professionally. With very varied information available on the internet these days, experts and speakers are in great demand to help educate, entertain, and inform audiences on all subjects all over the world.

New Zealand’s current NSA President, trust and reputation champion Hannah Samuel, and International Speaker Mike Handcock are very supportive of this appointment, and are excited about the future of both the Wellington chapter, and the overall NSA Network in New Zealand.

I have known Eva-Maria for four years and seen her grow into a bestselling author, speaker and an inspiration for those around her, and I think it's fascinating that New Zealand has the youngest branch president. I'm a great believer in youth and am happy to support Eva-Maria and I firmly believe that he leadership role will bring younger generations to step up within NSA, and society in New Zealand, and hopefully worldwide. – Mike Handcock, International Speaker, Bestselling Author, founder of global transformational and speaking company Rock Your Life!

NSA is fortunate to have Eva-Maria’s enthusiasm and commitment. As a young branch president, NSA will benefit from the fresh perspectives she will bring regarding today's new technologies and communication ideas that will be introduced to NSA to benefit professional speakers and help them connect with audiences of all ages and experience, online and offline. – Hannah Samuel, The Reputation Champion, President NSANZ
