Tuesday, 30 July, 2013. National Speakers Association (NSA) inducts national bestselling author and motivational keynote speaker Lt. Col. Rob “Waldo” Waldman, MBA, CSP into the Speaker Hall of Fame.
The National Speakers Association (NSA) is the leading organization for professional speakers. At this year’s annual convention, Waldo Waldman and four of his peers were inducted into the CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame held at the Marriott in downtown Philadelphia, PA.
The CPAE (Council of Peers Award for Excellence) Speaker Hall of Fame is the prestigious lifetime award for speaking excellence and professionalism. Inductees are evaluated by their peers through a rigorous and demanding process. Each candidate must excel in seven categories: material, style, experience, delivery, image, professionalism and communication. The award is not based on celebrity status, number of speeches, amount of income or volunteer involvement in NSA.
To date, less than 200 men and women have been inducted into the CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame, including Ronald Reagan, General Colin Powell and Zig Ziglar.
“Words can’t describe how honored and humbled I am to receive this prestigious award,” Waldman said. “I promise to live up to the ideals it represents both on and off the platform.”
Waldo Waldman is the author of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller Never Fly Solo. A former combat decorated fighter pilot and motivational keynote speaker, he teaches associations and corporations how to build trusting, revenue producing relationships with their employees, partners and customers. His clients include Hewlett Packard, Home Depot. Bank of America, Verizon, Lockheed Martin and New York Life.
Waldo currently lives in Atlanta, GA with his wife Dana and their 2-year old son Ace.
