Thank you so much for thinking of me to possibly play a role at your event–I am so grateful when people believe I might be able to contribute to something that is so important to them!
Because of my passion to be a great husband and father I prayerfully consider every invitation based on the following criteria:
1) Availability—Are the dates currently open? Unfortunately some wonderful speaking/teaching opportunities aren’t possible due to calendar conflicts.
2) Family—Does the request conflict with family events? The health of my family and primary relationships are my top priority and my wife and I evaluate every request based on days/nights away from home (during the requested month).
3) Audience—What is the primary purpose of the event? What type of people will be there? Do I believe that I can make a contribution to this audience? I desperately want to be a good steward of my time and my messages and need to be confident that I’m right for your event.
4) Honorarium—What is the compensation for the time away? Since I make a living from my speaking, money is obviously one part of the decision-making process. If your budget can not accommodate my standard daily rate, please be specific with what your budget allows (in the comment section on the speaking request form). If you want/need specific direction for our daily rate, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re interested in submitting a request you can CLICK HERE for the form. About every two weeks, myself, my wife, and a friend (serving as my “speaking manager”) discuss/filter each request thru the above criteria. We will do everything we can to get you an answer as soon as possible.
