Ken’s speaking/facilitation services are planned and charged in one-day increments, whether for a one-hour keynote or a full-day workshop. The per diem speaking fee varies between $6,000 and $7,000 depending upon peak seasonal demand and the impact of travel time. Clients will also be invoiced for travel/accommodation expenses plus GST or HST (depending upon their provincial tax regime).
For a distance-delivered virtual workshop or presentation, fees start at just $3,000 for a one-hour presentation (and there are no travel or accommodation expenses). Often this eliminates two-thirds of the cost of a live appearance.
Ken’s speaking fees include a preliminary call to discuss your audience and priorities, up to 4 hours of preparation time to review your strategic plan, research plans or other documents you provide, travel time, up to 8 hours on your campus, and up to 5 hours of lecture or 8 hours of workshop facilitation/discussion. All software required (PollEverywhere, Zoom, etc) is provided by Eduvation.
Whenever possible, Ken tries to minimize his carbon footprint and your costs for travel by scheduling sequences of events and cities within a region. For this reason, Eduvation usually books Ken’s flights, hotels and rental cars (if required). To ensure flexibility in flight schedules, they are usually booked Air Canada “Latitude” economy class. Whenever possible, Ken will plan to arrive in town the night before your event, to ensure that no weather or airline delays interfere. To allow you maximum flexibility to schedule the agenda for the day, this typically means two nights’ accommodation and meals will also be charged. Travel costs will be round-trip from London Ontario, unless your contract states otherwise. (Sometimes we can save travel costs by planning around other events in your region.)
Ken Steele’s speaking and facilitation services are managed by Eduvation Inc. Eduvation will email you a letter of agreement, and once you sign and return it, an invoice for a deposit to secure the date and cover travel expenses. The balance, including receipts for travel and accommodation expenses, will be invoiced upon completion of the engagement, with HST or GST included.
Please contact Ken to inquire about a specific date, or to explore the possibilities further, to design a dynamic and effective event!
