“Why the speaking industry in the Philippines has never grown over the last decade isn’t difficult to understand, at least now that I think I’ve already figured it all out. And I can sum it up in just one word: selfishness.” —Lloyd A. Luna, RSP
The Philippine Association of Professional Speakers, Inc. (PAPS) took flight on July 31, 2017 when it was formally recognized by the Securities and Exchange Commission of the Philippines (SEC). Its registration number: CN201725232.
The primary thrust of the PAPS is to be the home of aspiring and seasoned speaking professionals in the Philippines. Its core mission is to provide holistic development for its members as they work together to advance a highly professional and united speaking industry.
By establishing a community to oversee their myriad common concerns and by policing their ranks, professional speakers in the country can now have the confidence to build a sustainable speaking enterprise.
