fees range from $7500 for a 90-minute keynote to $15,000 for a one-day
program, plus expenses.
For school, academy, college and non-profit speaking programs, we
dramatically lower these fees to make Bill's expertise available
to organizations that would not ordinarily be able to bring him
in. Typical school, academy, camp or non-profit speaking fees might
be in the $800 to $4,000 range, or less, depending on certain variables.
Speaking fees are custom quoted based on these factors:
- Nearness to Bill's office in Palo Alto, CA, to reduce travel
- Bill's availability
- Length of the program
- Number of participants
- Non-profit vs. for-profit organization
- Degree of customization required
- Pre-program and post-program work
- Workbook or handout customization
- Inclusion of Bill's products
- Trades or barters
- Number of dates booked (multiple guaranteed dates are discounted)

Barter and Trades To Offset The Speaking Fee Discount

for speaking services. Please contact us for full details. Examples
of possible barter items might be discounts or trade-outs from your
