SPEAKER INFORMATION PREFERENCE FORM
THESE DOCUMENTS CAN BE SENT TO US ELECTRONICALLY, VIA EMAIL.
We prefer a live presentation of a keynote speech, recorded within the last 2-3 years. DVDs are preferred, although we will also accept VHS tapes. Media should be bureau-friendly and does not need to be in your marketing packaging. We only require one copy, which will be used as our master copy. THERE IS NO NEED TO SUBMIT ADDITIONAL COPIES OF THE SAME MEDIA. We find that our clients prefer to view full-length speeches. The most current media will be used to create a video clip for our website.
Please include the date and description/title on your demo. NOTE: Some of the speakers' media that we have on file are from 2003 or earlier. If you want us to only use media that are from a certain timeframe, please let us know.
Please provide your U.S. gross fee and include international fees, if applicable. We will use your U.S. gross fee to determine your fee range on our website.
We prefer that the bios include the most recent accomplishments, as well as historical ones. Some clients prefer both a long and a short version.

Please provide a topics sheet that describes your keynote addresses and a list of your speech titles, which will be listed on our website.
If you have both a long and a short intro, please provide both of them.
