The Asia Professional Speakers Convention is not like other conferences. It’s a convention by and for speakers. Where professional speakers from around the world meet to learn how to become better speakers. Obviously only the best speakers get to perform on stage. As Convention Chair I decided to put the strongest speakers in the four opening slots. Scott Bales was one of those four speakers. I have been given so much positive feedback about his content as well as his style of delivery. Scott is truly a world-class keynote speaker. Happy Audience. Happy convention chair.
