A B C D E POA

What do our website fee bands mean?

All of the speakers and artists featured on the website are classified within a specific fee range (e.g. E: £3K - £5K). This does not mean the speaker's actual fee will vary between these parameters. Instead, it is an indication that the fee is expected to fall somewhere within that range.

Some speakers may be listed as POA as they deliver a wide range of activities, which may mean that their fees are subject to greater variability depending on the requirements of our clients.

Fee bands are intended as an indication for corporate or private engagements and standard appearances to help you determine which speakers or artists are most likely to fall within your budget. These guides are based largely on our knowledge of the industry and that gained from previous bookings.

Please also note that these fees do not include VAT or expenses, and a firm fee can only be determined having approached speakers with a specific enquiry and full event brief. For the most up-to-date information, please contact a member of the Speakers Corner team, who will be happy to help.
