(July 28, 2007) (San Dimas, CA). Military-Writers.com is a website committed to listing military personnel who have authored books. The website announced that one of the writers, Wally Adamchik, a former tank command with the United States Marine Corps President of FireStarter Speaking and Consulting, a Raleigh, NC based Leadership Consulting firm has earned the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation. Established in 1980, the CSP is the speaking profession’s international measure of speaking experience and skill. Fewer than 10 percent of the speakers worldwide who belong to the International Federation for Professional Speakers hold this professional designation.
The CSP designation is conferred by the National Speakers Association (NSA) and the International Federation of Professional Speakers only on accomplished professional speakers who have earned it by meeting strict criteria. CSP’s must document a proven track record of continuing service and ethical behavior. Wally Adamchik is one of 26 professionals to earn the CSP in the class of 2007. He was honored during a ceremony on July 10, 2007 at the NSA National Convention in San Diego, California.
Wally focuses on helping firms improve the ability of their leaders to succeed in an increasingly complex and competitive market. He is the author of NO YELLING: The Nine Secrets of Marine Corps Leadership You MUST Know To WIN In Business which was selected by Entrepreneur magazine as one of the best business books for summer 2007 and is a regular contributor to national print and trade publications. He is a Non-Resident Fellow with Marine Corps University helping the Marines define and refine leadership doctrine for the 21st century.
