Terry Watson

Terry Watson is the AHA, who makes people, companies and organizations large and small aware of the conscious and unconscious ways they sabotage their businesses and their lives. Terry provides ridiculously effective and easily implementable strategies. In short, Terry gives your organization the tools your people need to get out of their own way while making them laugh till they snort in the process.

Terry is also a CSP, Certified Speaking Professional. The CSP is the speaking profession&rsquos International measure of speaking experience and skill, earned from the National Speakers Association. This is a really big deal since there are less than 600 speakers with the CSP designation in the universe. Fewer than 10 percent of the speakers who belong to the Global Speakers Federation (GSF) hold this professional designation. What this means is that your event is definitely not his first rodeo. You are working with a seasoned pro who speaks a lot (Click Here to view Terry&rsquos World Tour Schedule). If your attendees aren&rsquot often overheard in the halls saying, &ldquo I can&rsquot believe I didn&rsquot know that&rdquo or &ldquoI haven&rsquot laughed this hard in years&rdquo or &ldquoI am so glad I was here&rdquo, Terry was not your speaker.
