Being a professional speaker is hard. It’s lonely, scary, and at times it can feel like you are the only one who has ever had this idea, let alone done anything about it.

You are not alone! There are people out there just like you; other speakers who have faced similar problems along their journey to success in business.

This year’s NSA NYC Agility Mastermind Retreat brings together a group of eight successful speakers for a 4-Day Mastermind Retreat in sunny Florida to create an environment where they can connect with each other on a deeper level and brainstorm ways that will help them move forward with their businesses.

By attending this Mastermind Retreat, you will be able to gain valuable insights into how others have handled similar situations as well as receive support from those around you so that you may reach new levels of success within your own ventures. This Mastermind Retreat focuses on the BUSINESS of speaking (and not stage performance.)

NSA NYC members will be prioritized.
On September 13th, 2021 application will be open to the public.

Past NSA NYC President

Keynote speaker and corporate trainer Sylvie di Giusto, CSP, helps individuals and organizations explore how people make up their minds very quickly about them, their leadership potential, or their company and either open the door or slam it shut. She has nearly twenty years of corporate experience and has held senior positions, mainly in human resources, at international organizations ranging from 10 to 100,000 employees. Today, she is a recognized member of the international speaking community, having presented to every strata of management—from experienced CEOs to young executives—within a variety of industries. Sylvie speaks to audiences around the world about the importance of “first impressions… and everything beyond” and takes them on an entertaining journey that reveals how the world sees them. She is a Certified Speaking Professional, the author of the Image of Leadership, and the creator of mobile Learning Lab “How You Impress.”
When she is not working, Sylvie is volunteering with the National Speakers Association. When she is not volunteering, she is spending time with her family and exploring the extraordinary United States—this amazing place she is lucky to call home.

In addition, you’ll experience hot seat sessions and group discussions with special guests, such as
Hall of Fame Speakers and Bureau Partners.

How much will it be?

A one-time donation of $2000 to the NSA NYC (includes costs of living and main meals, does not include air travel or ground transportation costs). All profits will go to the NSA NYC chapter.

Why should you attend?

NSA NYC Agility Mastermind Retreat is the perfect opportunity to get out of your head and into someone else’s. You will be surrounded by people who are just as passionate about their work as you are, and they want to help you succeed. This retreat is designed specifically for professional speakers who have been working hard on their own projects for years but need some outside perspective.

Also, it’s time to take a break from all that hard work and challenging two years due to pandemic, relax with other like-minded individuals, push self-limiting beliefs and allow yourself to think big, gain clarity on what it takes for your own business success at this intimate group event where we’ll share feedback with each other to leave together with a plan.
Space is limited, so don’t wait any longer or risk missing out!


Apply until SEPTEMBER 12th, 2021 (NSA NYC members will be prioritized. On September 13th, 2021 application will be open to the public.)
