Global Speakers Federation


Congratulations to our Past President Jonathan Low CSP on his appointment as the President of the Global Speakers Federation. This is the first time an Asian has helmed our global umbrella entity representing 13 different countries.  We are proud that he is also our MAPS Professional Member.

We trust that under his leadership, GSF will continue to thrive and build on the strengths of all the past leaderships. This also puts MAPS and Malaysia on the global spotlight as a viable talent hub in the speaking and training industry globally.

With Jonathan’s leadership of GSF and close cooperation with other member associations under GSF; MAPS will continue to play an important role in uplifting the standards of the speaking and training industry in the country. It is our sincere hope that more Malaysian speakers and trainers will play bigger role in providing the best services to the global audience.

All the best Jonathan and MAPS will continue to support you.

Immediate Past President
