The Mission of CSA


Since 2001, CAMPUSPEAK’s College Speakers Academy (CSA) has offered the leading expertise in professional development, college industry education and the realities of the higher education speaking business to future college speaking professionals. Led by experienced faculty, CSA’s mission is to prepare aspiring keynote speakers with crucial information and training to create an impact on their audiences with the power of their words, topics and personal stories.

CSA was created to provide training to those interested in making positive impacts on college students across campuses through educational keynote speeches. We saw the need to ensure that those who consider working in this field were trained from the start and operate within a code of ethics that reflected well on them, and all others in the business as well. When a campus brings an outsider into their community to educate their students, trust must be honored through adherence to the highest ethical business practices. CSA was designed to not only teach aspiring keynote speakers how to reach college students with their messages, but also how to manage themselves as a business that maintains the high standards to which CAMPUSPEAK prides itself.

Topics You Will Learn

Topics include:

    • going from idea to a college-ready program,
    • advice on which college conferences are most profitable,
    • understanding today’s college students,
    • how to spend your first marketing dollars,
    • working with agencies vs. going solo,
    • speaking locally, regionally or nationally,
    • understanding college buyers,
    • developing an action plan for your college speaking,
    • common mistakes speakers make on campuses, and
    • the ethics of being a college speaker.


Participant Testimonies

“I went to CSA to learn how to follow my passion, build my business and expand my impact. It wasn’t just about making quick money, but building a credible brand on my own that would last. The program did that and more. The decision of to go with an agency became a choice rather than a necessity.”
