Notes on Booking Presentations

1. Rick presents for several speakers bureaus. Their contact information is listed below.  While they are a bit more expensive, they take care of everything, making both your life and Rick's much easier. These groups are well equipped to provide very professional, highly effective presentations and consulting for you and your group. They also maintain lists of all my cancellations, in case you want to use me sooner than the current calendar allows; they combine trips in clever ways to make dates happen that I cannot provide as readily. In the rare case that I have an emergency and can’t get to you in time, they can provide an alternative speaker. I highly recommend you book with them whenever possible.

2. When I have to travel overnight, I charge the same honorarium for each day of service, regardless of how many presentations I do, due to the cost of time. If you are local to the Washington, D.C., area where I live, the honorarium is usually lower. I will also charge your group for all expenses, which include: airfare, lodging, meals, tolls, basic house-keeping gratuities in hotels, and all ground transportation. I’m comfortable using my own car (if local), using a rental car, taking a taxi or Uber, or being driven by you or one of your colleagues—whichever you prefer.

To Book Rick Through a Speaker Bureau:

Highly engaging, intellectually humorous, thought-provoking and mindset challenger—these are just a few words that describe Rick. He will give you practical strategies and tools that you can use the next day to drive growth. His questions will transform your school and your life if you take the challenge to answer them honestly and discuss them with your colleagues. And be prepared for deep content and action steps that will move your school forward faster. Don't miss out on the opportunity to engage in a training or discussions with Rick—I walk away a better educator, trainer, author and person every time!
