At Celebrity Speakers, the speakers we represent are highly professional. As such, they like to be fully briefed on the objectives you have for your corporate event well before the event takes place. While your Celebrity Speakers consultant will talk to you at length and complete a full brief, there may also be a need for you to talk over the phone with the speaker you book. If you would like to personally brief the speaker, please ask your Celebrity Speakers Consultant to arrange a telephone meeting.
Speakers fees differ according to the speaker you book. The best starting point is to define your budget then provide that budget as part of your brief to your Celebrity Speakers consultant. That way we can provide you with a list of speakers that are affordable and will meet your corporate needs.
Most speakers need to be booked at least two months in advance of the event. Some of our higher profile speakers, including entertainers, broadcasters, politicians and leading business people need to be booked even earlier. As a rule of thumb, the earlier you can book your speaker, the better.
Do I need to pay a deposit to confirm a speaker?
Your chosen celebrity speaker will be confirmed as soon as we receive 50 per cent of the booking fee. The entire fee must be paid one week ahead of the event.
Every speaker's needs is different. Your Celebrity Speakers consultant will provide you with a list of any equipment or special arrangements required, in writing, when your booking is confirmed.
Yes, you will need to pay for your speaker's travel and accommodation. Your Celebrity Speakers consultant will discuss your speaker's requirements prior to confirmation of the booking.
Many of our speakers are happy to mingle with guests before or after an event, or, if appropriate, dine along with guests at the event. However, as our speakers often have other engagements to manage, this will need to be discussed and arranged when you first make your booking.
