Contact a speaker bureau that practices price transparency
There are plenty of speaker bureaus, but not all of them work according to the same process. Before contacting a speaker bureau, it is essential to make sure that you can trust it, both when it comes to the advice and support but also when it comes to pricing.
In the same way that some speaker bureaus will offer you a catalogue of profiles without taking the time to question the issues at stake in your event or your needs, others will not be transparent in the way they work and will not explicitly tell you the cost of your speaker.
That is why, before anything else, you should make sure that the speakers’ bureau you choose is completely transparent about its rates. This means that you are fully aware of the cost of your speaker as well as that of the bureau.
With fully transparent three-way contracts, Uprightly is committed to clearly communicating the actual cost of the speaker, separate from the agency’s consultancy fee. This ensures that the amounts in each budget are known by both parties.
