What do I charge for speaking engagements?
That’s a bit tricky to answer. While I have a base I work from, I don’t have a set speaking fee. There are too many variables including where the event is located, how many times will I be speaking, and if the event is paid or free.
My pricing isn’t ego based and what I know my content is worth, It’s based on that Mutually Assured Benefit concept and my expenses. It would be unfair to charge the same fee for the same talk delivered to 100 people attending a free event in Portland and a paid 3 day conference in London for 1000 attendees.
If you have an event in mind, send me the details and I can provide my fees based on the particulars of your event.
I’d love to chat about your needs and see how we can work together to everyone’s benefit.
I’m also curious as to your thoughts, both as a speaker and an event organizer. Why do you ask for free speakers or speak for free?
