Fee and Expense Policy

The speaker information package we send by mail contains our full fee schedule both for keynotes and seminars.

Our clients are best served when we have the opportunity to discuss their needs and objectives with them, and determine how we can be of the greatest value for their meeting. Then we’ll be able to quote a fee, based on our standard fee schedule. We’re very happy to openly discuss specific figures when we talk by phone.

In addition to our speaking, training, or consulting fee, reasonable travel expenses are charged to the client, at our cost, and generally include air fare, hotel, meals, and ground transportation. We’re happy to provide you with an estimate of those charges for your event – OR – to lock in a flat travel allowance based on our best estimate of what our travel expenses will be. We know that when it comes to travel expenses, you don’t like surprises. And neither do we.

We’re pretty low-maintenance. When we’re flying within North America, all we ask is for an upgradable coach ticket. If we feel like upgrading to first class, we’ll do that with our frequent flyer status, our own money, or our good looks. So we’d better keep that frequent flyer status up-to-date.

For engagements outside North America, our fee will take into account the extra time involved. And we’ll ask to fly in business or first class. We’re both too cranky to fly across the ocean in coach if we can help it. If possible, we’ll upgrade with frequent flyer miles or certificates.

Copies of our books and audiobooks can be made available for your audience. You may elect to provide a copy for each attendee (we have great volume discounts), or the items may be made available for individual sale to attendees.

A deposit of 50% of the speaking fee holds the date when you book an engagement. The balance is due when we’ve delivered the program.

We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about any ways in which we can be of service to you. Please contact us.
