Demystifying guest Lecturer Fees & Costs

Usually a business lecturers costs and fees are a strictly protected secret as they often do not share their business speaking rates openly.

Thus here is a brief overview of conference lecturers rates and what to expect.

A business lecturers fee is generally based on what their time is appreciated. With that said several event and conference speaking fees will fall into a certain scope as listed below.

QUICK NOTE: If you work with a speaking agency, you would surely be assuming to pay x2-3 times the speaker rate you would pay if you talked to the speaker directly.

Free Conference Lecturer

You can get a free motivational presenters to speak for no fees, especially if they are a new speaker without wide experience. The only other reason a specialised lecturer might speak for no charge, is if the conference or event is local & convenient for them.

Guest Presenter travel expenses

Not far taken from the free presenter status defined above, a guest lecturer can frequently be hired for just the cost of their travel preparations (hotel + flight). This is a usual arrangement if the event speaker is new or is able to take advantage from the event in some other way in lieu of the event speaking fee.

Often, event or seminar managers will offer a flat amount for the hotel/flight, leaving it to the event speaker to co-ordinate the travel themselves.  A event presenter travel rate offer might begin at around $500 and go up to a few thousand dollars for international speaking appointments.

Business Lecturer $500 – $1750

A conference presenter charge in this price range would usually apply to small conferences or non-profit events.

It is considered a small speaking cost, but if the conference presenter really wants to take part in the event, it can be ample to get them to participate.  If travel costs are included, this speakers charge range can assure a modest number of the not yet famous event presenters in the marketplace.

Guest Presenter $1500 – $3500

Not unlike the former group, this presenters price range is still modest for an skilled and expert event speaker. An event lecturer you would take at this range would probably be a skilled lecturer with slightly less accomplishments or experience.

You may get lucky in getting a presenter who speaks for a living and needs the speaking job.

If you are co-ordinating a small conference, meeting or event, this modest rate is satisfactory, especially if you cover travel expenses for the speaker.

Professional Speaker $3000 – $5000

A lot of very good keynote presenters will accept this rate even though it will be below their ask.  This is real money for the greater part of presenters out there.

Business Presenter $5000 – $7500

This would be the day-to-day price range for top keynote presenters – professional lecturer who have given numerous event talks formerly and/or have renowned career achievements.

Conference Presenter $7500 – $10 000

Major seminars and business events regularly pay expert business speakers within this price range.?For this fee they will protect a experienced and expert event presenter who will bring an wonderful demonstration usually fitted to the seminar or event’s audience.

Keynote Lecturer $10 000 +

This is generally the range for celebrity speakers. A big shot presenter is usually a household name or industry professionals that are big draws for the niche market in question. It makes economic sense to pay this speaking fee particularly if you are looking to attract in a paying spectators.
