Milwaukee Author and Motivational Humorist Receives International Award

(Milwaukee, WI, November 2005) Milwaukee author and motivational humorist, Barbara Bartlein, has earned the National Speakers Association’s Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation. She was honored with the association’s highest earned designation during ceremony at the 2005 NSA International Convention held in Atlanta, GA.

Established in 1980, the CSP designation serves as an international measure of professional platform skill and proven speaking experience. To qualify, candidates must meet a combination of educational, professional and performance standards. Currently, less than eight percent of all members worldwide have earned this prestigious designation.

“I wish to thank all the clients, friends, and colleagues who made this happen. I so appreciate your recommendations, references and confidence,” said Bartlein.

NSA requires that candidates for this designation serve at least 100 different clients, give a minimum of 250 presentations and earn at least $250,000 in speaking fees, all within a five year period.

Barbara Bartlein is The People Pro and Past President of NSA-WI. She is a relationship expert and presents on leadership, customer service, teamwork, stress management and working with people. For more information, please visit her website at
