NSA Kentucky President 2024-2025

Trevor Blondeel


It is my privilege to serve our NSA Kentucky community, including members from Tennessee and Indiana, as president this year. I invite you to join us!!

I first learned about this chapter, when I asked a fellow coach about his speaking. It was Jeff Nally, who was president at the time, and I knew he was a professional
speaker that got paid to speak. I wanted to learn more about that!

Within a month, I went to an event, and signed up for the Pro Speaker Academy. A year later, after my training, I had a video recorded to show meeting planners, and booked my first paid speaking event! That would not have happened without NSAKY, and all the generous members.

We have a mix of members who are starting out like I was, to Hall of Fame Speakers and Certified Speaking Professionals. Whether you are an entrepreneur or have a job and want to grow your speaking skills and earn income, this is the place to be!

Our purpose is to be better speakers and build better businesses. We do this by bringing in exceptional experts to share their knowledge in person, and these are delivered hybrid and recorded for those who cannot make it. We also have live remote events during the week. My favorite part of the chapter, are the connections we make with each other! The care and generosity of our members is priceless.

This year, you will be a part of an amazing member experience, and a Pro Speaker Academy like no other!
