What’s it cost?
“Hold on a second, ” I hear you asking. “You don’t expect to be paid to speak do you?”
I do charge for giving a speech or running a workshop. It takes time to prep for your event but I’m certain you’ll be happy with the result.
I will do several free sessions each year so it’s definitely worth asking.
Aside from those freebies, here’s an idea of what it costs to get me in front of your people.
UK and Europe
- Speech from 30-90 minutes: £1500 – £2000+VAT
- Half or full day workshop: £2500 – £3500 +VAT
Rest of world costs double that.
On top of the fees above please add reasonable travel and accommodation expense from Edinburgh, UK.
