IF I BOOK A VIRTUAL OR KEYNOTE SPEAKER FOR MULTIPLE EVENTS OR SESSIONS, WILL THEY REDUCE THEIR COST?

Yes. We often work with speakers for safety meetings or leadership development speakers that will be required to present multiple sessions with the same audience or a different audience at each event. Professional speakers, guest speakers and facilitators will often have a sliding scale speaker fee if you book them for more than one event or multiple sessions, speakers will be flexible in their fees since you are making a great investment for them to drive impact with the attendees. The most cost-effective way is to book a speaker for a keynote followed by an interactive workshop session, as you will access the speakers half day rate. If you book the speaker for different days, the costs will increase, however they will offer a discounted rate per session or a heavily discounted second presentation.
