Frequently Asked Questions About Presentations

How much do you charge?
Here’s how it works: You decide how long you would like the presentation to be, or how many presentations you would like to have during one day. You might want to offer a presentation several times during a day, so that as many people as possible are able to attend, or you might want to select different topics to be offered on the same day.

My fee depends on how many hours of speaking you select:

  • 1 to 3 hour presentation - $5,000
  • 4 to 8 hours -- $7,500 
  • Special rates are available for 2 to 3 day training sessions.

If the program is held within 100 miles of Nashville, Tennessee, $1000 is deducted from the fee.

Is there a way for me to save on your fee?
The cost per program is lower when you engage me to present more than one program on the same day or you schedule programs on consecutive days. You might consider requesting sponsorship as a way of reducing expenses for your meeting. 

Is there a charge for travel time to and from the meeting?
There is no charge for my travel time.
How are expenses handled?
Airline, hotel and rental car, if a rental car is needed, will be covered by you. There will be no additional fee for meals, mileage, tolls, etc. 

Do you provide learning materials or handouts?
Yes, a learning guide is prepared to best meet the needs of your group. The guide varies in number of pages in length, depending on the length of the program and the type of event. You will receive a master copy of the guide for duplication. There is no charge for the master.

Can we videotape or audiotape your presentation?
Audio and videotaping is permissible, provided that a copy of the tape is sent to me within two weeks of the presentation. Audio and videotapes must be for internal use only, and not sold. 

Can you provide a photo for our brochure?
Yes, a photograph can be provided.
What are your AV and set-up requirements?
  • Wireless lapel microphone (if more than 50 people will attend)
  • LCD projector and cable
  • Screen
  • Flip chart and markers
Can you send a biography and introduction?
Yes. I will email an introduction printed in large font for easy reading. You receive this in advance of the meeting and I bring an additional copy with me to your event.
