How much does it cost to book a keynote speaker?
The booking cost varies depending on the keynote speaker's popularity, event location, number of presentations and desired level of engagement, among other factors. Additionally, the final cost is influenced by travel expenses, which are assumed by the client.
The booking fee of a local keynote speaker ranges between $2.000 and $10.000 USD and that of an international speaker between $10.000 and $50.000 USD, although certain Gurus get to reach fees between $50.000 and $500.000+ USD/EUR. However, it is important to note that our services do not involve any additional cost to our clients, since we receive direct compensation from the keynote speaker.
Will keynote speakers participate in any extracurricular activities?
Usually, keynote speakers are happily willing to participate in extracurricular activities related to the main event -book signings, photo shoots, press conferences, dinner parties, cocktail parties and other kind of social engagements- provided these were previously discussed and established in the booking contract.
How to begin the counseling and/or keynote speaker booking process?
To begin the counseling and/or keynote speaker booking process we invite you to contact us by phone or email; alternatively you may fill out the available contact form with the basic information needed to start the process. Once first contacted, one of our representatives will get in touch with you as soon as possible.
Is it possible to communicate with the speaker prior to the event?
Part of the booking process is to arrange a conference call, moderated by HiCue Speakers, for the client and the keynote speaker to discuss the overall objectives of his presentation, although sometimes it is possible to schedule a face to face meeting in case the speaker is already at the event's location.
How is our service billed?
Keynote speaker's fees are established as net values; local taxes and travel expenses such as airfare tickets (usually in executive class), ground transportation, hotel lodging (usually in a suite-type bedroom) and food are not included. Incidental expenses such as alcoholic beverages and long distance phone calls are charged to the speaker.
