Bookings are managed by Director of Operations Fiona Evans. To make a booking please contact Fiona on 0415 328 532 or fill in the booking form below to determine availability.
Speaking fees and expenses vary depending on location. Our speakers travel ex Melbourne. Once a speaker's availability for an event is determined, and you wish to proceed, email Fiona to confirm the booking. Please also note that tentative dates cannot be held indefinitely as our speakers are in high demand so prompt confirmation is recommended.
Once the booking is confirmed by email Fiona sends a booking form in relation to the event. This form outlines the conditions of the engagement. Upon receipt of the signed booking form, Fiona will email a Tax Invoice for 50% of the speaking fee. To confirm a booking, payment of a 50% deposit is required at which time a binding agreement is reached (through the services of Bernard Salt or Simon Kuestenmacher), to deliver the Presentation. The booked speaker's involvement is subject to these conditions.
Our speakers always makes themselves available for a telephone briefing prior to the event to discuss the topic, the audience, AV requirements and logistics including the arrival and departure times.
Bernard, Simon and Fiona work with clients to provide a photo, a bio and a presentation outline for publication in a conference brochure as may be required. And where appropriate the booked speaker is happy to promote a forthcoming event at which he is speaking via his various social media sites.
It is requested that presentations not be provided as a handout either before or during a presentation. This is to ensure the effect of the speaker's delivery is not compromised by advance knowledge of his material. A pdf copy of the presentation may be provided to attendees after his session.
If you wish to record a presentation, then contact Fiona Evans on 0415 328 532 to request permission.
We are usually amenable to presentation slides being published on a client’s website in a pdf format after the event but if you wish to do so then contact Fiona to confirm this request.
Our speakers fly business class ex Melbourne. Due to tight scheduling, Fiona makes all flight bookings for our speakers. Should your event coincide with another engagement, Fiona will undertake to split the airfare costs to ensure fairness to all.
If you have engaged a speaker to present either first thing in the morning or in the evening, you will be asked to cover accommodation costs including reasonable meals.
Airport transfers in both the origin city and the destination city are covered by the client.
Our speakers prefer a lapel microphone and an open stage. Ideally they should be able to walk along the edge of the stage and address the audience directly.
You will be invoiced a 50% deposit for the presentation fee up front. The balance of the fee plus associated travel and accommodation costs will be invoiced after the event and is required within 14 days of the invoice being issued.
