Speak like you mean it, and be willing to walk away

Speakers Bureau Contract sample
There was a clause in the contract that over-rode this . Signed last night, Jan. 12, 2016.


Began 25 minutes behind schedule and ran over my time by one minute, a net loss of 24 minutes. Never complained. Saw it coming and adapted on the fly. This is what a professional speaker does.

Did the client or the audience have any idea?

Certainly not the audience.

Just another day of doing work that matters.

Coincidently, received an email from a different client with great news. The Speakers Bureau’s client agreed to remove their video taping request.

i was willing to walk away from a big contract, rather than compromise my values.
