Fees and Expenses

Speaking and workshop facilitation are services I provide as part of my business. Event fees range from $750 to $1,500 and up, and vary depending on location, audience size, and other factors. If your event isn’t in or near Toronto, fees will be at the higher end of the range; expenses are extra. Have a limited budget? Let me know and we’ll see what we can work out.

Note that I must charge Canadian tax as appropriate for work performed in Canada.
