A Word About Your Return-On-Investment In Our Professional Speaking Services

Professional speaking is a glamorous, high-paid, easy, carefree career.

Professional speakers make a lot of money for just a few minutes talking on the platform.


If that were true, then couldn't a meeting planner get almost anyone to stand up there and give a speech? Who wouldn't want all that glamour and high pay? In reality, we all know that's not the case. Ninety percent of the people in the world are deathly afraid of public speaking. It's the number two biggest fear they have. Only the fear of death ranks higher.

If you are truly looking to minimize the fees you pay a presenter, there are ample opportunities to contact local High School drama and debate students who would eagerly come in for free to present a program. Or, a local toastmaster group would be glad to send out folks to practice their deliveries. Or, you could merely have someone from inside your own firm stand up and deliver, saving considerable money. Of course, we jest.

Clearly, you are not hiring a presenter based on their time. You are not paying for someone to just give a speech. You hire them based on the results they can provide your organization. The ROI is what matters.

Your investment in our speaking services is NOT based on the following:

    •   The length of time we present or the length of time we are with your people.
    •   Any pro-ration of, or comparison to any of our other fee structures..

Here is what you ARE getting for your presentation fee investment:

  1.   Our years of experience, training and background that help us find solutions to your problems.
  2.   The skill, talent and artistry to stand on stage and consistently deliver under pressure.
  3.   Our reputation and credibility in our field that guarantees high-quality work.
  4.   The years it took to conceive, develop and test each proprietary program.
  5.   Our commitment to continually re-evaluate, improve and re-configure our programs.
  6.   Our contacting your attendees prior to a program, both via email and phone, allowing precise customization of each program.
  7.   Our providing an objective, outside view of your company that provides you new, invaluable insights to help you improve your business.
  8.   Development and production of high-quality attendee learning materials for the program.
  9.   Our travel time to and from the program.
  10.   Our set-up time and tear-down time for the program.
  11.   Our time spent meeting and greeting attendees prior to the program.
  12.   Our time spent observing your meeting prior to our program so we can make our program a better fit for you.
  13.   Our being easy to work with and committed to making your program and business a success.
  14.   A consistently solid delivery of the program itself.
  15.   Our handling of all independent contractor taxes and withholding expenses, saving you bookkeeping.
  16.   Professional and ethical behavior from us at all times.

So is that what you are actually investing in? Is that your Return On Investment?

Your investment value actually does NOT come from all the above. The above is merely the vehicle that provides you the value-add. Your ROI is the change in thinking, emotions and behavior in your people that allows them to reach new breakthroughs in their own peak performance. That leads to breakthroughs in their team's peak performance. That leads to breakthroughs in organizational performance that leads to sustainable bottom-line competitive advantage.

We invite you to make an investment in the sustainable growth and profitability of your business.
