Phil Van Hooser Honored with NSA’s Cavett Award
Some of you may have heard through the grapevine or seen social media postings from others my recent good news, but I wanted my friends, colleagues, clients and followers to hear it directly from me.
National Speakers Association Cavett Award
On Tuesday evening, I was named the recipient of the 2019 Cavett Award at the National Speakers Association’s Annual CPAE Hall of Fame banquet in Denver. The award is named in honor of NSA’s founder, Cavett Robert and is considered NSA’s most prestigious award.
Frankly, I am both surprised by the recognition and tremendously honored. Though I’m confident there are many deserving NSA members, I simply can’t imagine any who would be any more appreciative of this recognition than I. I accept that God has blessed me with a unique combination of talent, desire and opportunity in order to encourage and instruct others by way of my leadership message.
I’ve had the opportunity to do so for hundreds of clients and thousands of audiences throughout the United States and around the world over the past 31+ years. That in itself has been a tremendous honor for me. But this Cavett Award further confirms for me my Lord’s desire to graciously provide even more than any of us can hope, dream or imagine.
The Spirit Behind the Cavett Award
According to the National Speakers Association, “Many members already know, or have heard of, NSA Founder Cavett Robert, CSP, CPAE. He believed the strength of spirit and growth of our profession would prevail, if all of our members focus on unconditionally giving of themselves to our community…The NSA community is known for the concept of removing competition by building a bigger market for all speakers. The strength of NSA is in the education we provide and the strong community we have built.”
In the spirit of this award, I’m even more committed than ever to helping others grow personally and professionally! Thank you for believing in me and for allowing me to serve you and your organizations. I respectfully share this recognition and honor with each of you.
Here are a couple moments from this unforgettable night!

World-Class Service & The Masters Who Create It
During my 30+ year professional speaking career, I’ve enjoyed a number of incredible, world-class service experiences. But my experience from twenty years ago this week is hard to top. In 2002, I spent 10 days working as a “paid volunteer” at The Masters Championship at Augusta National Golf Club. A tough job, but somebody’s got to […]
