I get emails all the time asking “What do you charge for a one hour program?”

A great question. The only problem is that they don’t tell me a thing about the group I could be speaking to, the type of program they are wanting or how far I will have to travel before I even open my mouth.

See, I handle my fee schedule a little bit different than most speakers of my experience level. I price per PROJECT and not per TIME FRAME.

What does that mean? Simple. I don’t provide “cookie cutter” programs. I take time to learn about the group and then customize my program to fit their needs.Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t write an entirely new program for the event but I will tweak some of my objectives and move around some of my key points to make sure I deliver an program that is both educational AND entertain and that fits my CLIENTS needs. I don’t just show up and throw up and then open up my hand up and expect a check. I have actually put some thought into what I will be speaking about and what will best fit the situation.

Secondly, this in a unique time in American business. Never in my lifetime has there been so much chaos, fear and uncertainty in the marketplace. Many companies and employees are so stressed out, that they are barely hanging by a thread. I have a renewed sense of purpose with my message and feel truly bless to be in the “right place” at the “right time” and can actually HELP PEOPLE reduce stress, enjoy their jobs more and want to strangle their co-workers less.

With that comes great responsibility and a deep commitment. Here is something you won’t hear a lot of speaker say, but right now for me, MESSAGE is more important that MONEY. What that means is I am VERY interested in getting in front of audiences who REALLY need this message and REALLY need a morale boost. Unfortunately, it seems that these groups are the ones hit hardest by this slowdown in the economy and don’t have the deep pockets they once might have. I will FIND A WAY to make myself available to any company or association that is a good fit for my services.

For a quick reference though, here is a pricing table that other speakers in my niche and with at least a decade of speaking experience charge for certain programs and time frames. This may give a nice ballpark to start with but as I mentioned above, I put considerable weight on the TYPE of group I am speaking so don’t hesitate to give me a call!
