It's My First Time Booking a Professional Speaker
This is my first time booking a professional speaker. What do I need to consider?
This was sent to us by Lisa in California. She shared that she is a college graduate, majored in event planning, and needs to hire a motivational speaker who specializes in leadership.
Contracting the Engagement: It is important to clearly outline the activities in which you wish your speaker to participate in the original contract. For example, if you contract a professional speaker to deliver only a keynote address, the contract fee is for this service only. Requesting an autograph session or participation in a VIP reception after the contract has been signed may result in additional fees.
Payment Terms: A non-refundable deposit is collected at the time a speaker is booked for the event. This deposit guarantees the date will be reserved for you on the speaker's calendar. In the event of a cancellation by your organization, the deposit will be forfeited. If a cancellation occurs within 60 days of the event date, the entire fee and any already-incurred travel/preparation expenses will be due.
