As communicated over the last few weeks, the Global Speakers Summit 2020 (GSS2020) that was to be hosted by the Professional Speakers Association of Namibia (PSAN) was postponed due to the mounting concerns of the COVID-19 outbreak. Subsequently, the Global Speakers Federation (GSF) made the decision to cancel the GSS2020. This has resulted in needing to process refunds.
The Professional Speakers Association of Namibia (PSAN) will still be hosting an event in November 2020 albeit not under the banner of the Global Speakers Summit or the Global Speakers Federation (GSF). This event will be a multi-day convention with much of the same expected outcomes as that of the initial GSS2020. PSAN will be partnering with local organisations to potentially co-host this event in order to deliver the maximum value to attendees and provide a more impactful stage for speakers. More details on this convention will be communicated to you via the Professional Speakers Association of Namibia (PSAN) in the next 4-6 weeks.
In light of the above, we would like to detail the refunds all ticket holders of GSS2020 will be receiving, as well as how the refund process will proceed and what further communication you might still be receiving in future from the GSS2020.com Administrators and the Professional Speakers Association of Namibia (PSAN)

Please allow for delays for international account holders.

As communicated in prior communications, PSAN and the organisers of the GSS2020 had intended on postponing the summit to November 2020 but the GSS2020 was cancelled by the Global Speakers Federation (GSF). As opposed to the postponement, the cancellation of the GSS2020 has resulted in nonrecoverable expenses (service provider deposits, marketing, administration and management, merchandise, printing, SaaS, media etc). Every effort was made to recover these expenses to pass back as refunds. Some expenses have been negotiated to be transferred to the hosting of the PSAN November 2020 Convention.
In the absence of a legally binding hosting contract between the Global Speakers Federation (GSF) and the Professional Speakers Association of Namibia (PSAN) for the Global Speakers Summit 2020 (GSS2020), GSS2020.com was contracted under the false premise of there being a contract in place. As such, all agreements have been terminated and the limitation of liability, as stated in the GSS2020.com Terms & Conditions, shall take effect and are extended to the GSS2020.com directors, employees, partners, agents, suppliers, or affiliates accordingly.
Thank you for your patience, support and understanding of this process.
