Q: What if we can’t afford your fees?
A: We are happy to discuss options. Here are some ideas:
- Work with another department within your organization and do two events in the same day. We can discount the second presentation and the total cost will be lower.
- Share the cost with another organization in your community.
- Find a sponsor. A lot of companies will contribute toward our fee in exchange for their name at the event and building a stronger relationship with your organization.
- Find a less-experienced speaker. There are some good ones out there.
- Find a less-experienced consultant. Due to our broad and extensive experience base, we often complete your project in far fewer hours.
- We occasionally do programs for charity events which we take on a case-by-case basis.
