Speaking Fees and Book Costs:
As part of my 2024, I Don't Match Socks, book tour speaking fees have changed.
There are three options:
1) Purchase a discounted copy of my book for every attendee and I will waive my speaking fee (300 book minimum).
2) Pay my normal speaking fee.
3) Pay a discount speaking fee and let me sell books at the events.
Books are sent directly to your event venue. For book signing please allow appropriate time after the presentation or provide a booth at the event expo.
All books are published through Bright Dog Studios, Washington State.
Good reasons why Jabez LeBret may be the right speaker for you:
Jabez has delivered over 1,300 presentations globally and is considered a leading expert in marketing, technology, and leadership. He has spoken in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Panama, Guatemala, Columbia, Peru, Argentina, France, and Saudi Arabia.
Jabez knows that your reputation is on the line when he takes the stage. As such, he will carefully decide whether or not he is right for your audience before he agrees to a contract. Additionally, you can expect no surprises and a healthy pat on the back from your boss when Jabez steps off of the podium. In fact, it’s guaranteed or you can keep your fee.
You’ve likely seen many presentations where the speaker took out his or her “canned” material and just inserted your company or association’s name in once or twice during the hour. It doesn’t take too long until the listeners are looking at each other as if to say, “Does this guy have any idea what we do?”
What you get from Jabez will be far from “canned.” Instead, he will provide a unique presentation tailored to the needs and wants of your group. His pre-program research will begin with your very first conversation and will continue to and through the event.
There is a difference between a speaker and an expert who speaks. You and your audience know the difference. Jabez is an expert in the field of Generational Leadership and Communication. Spend one hour with him and you will learn the difference between Jabez and other speakers.
This is the icing on the cake. While many celebrities and experts have curb appeal and content, many do not have the vehicle to deliver it with. Jabez is known for his ability to grab the audience's attention from the very beginning both to inspire and to motivate while educating them with tools that lead to results.
The Extra Mile
Jabez’s work for you will not end when the microphone turns off. As needed, he would be happy to join your group in any social functions before or after the event. Additionally, your senior representative at the meeting will get a one-half-hour conference with Jabez within a month of the presentation to discuss the results of pre-program work (this never gets turned down).
Hiring a journalist and highly sought-after author for your event makes your event program shine and builds a wave of pre-program enthusiasm.
Here is some technical information about hiring me:
Flights: For flights, I like to keep things simple: I always book my ticket in advance to ensure I get the best deal and I typically fly coach on Alaska Airlines (my home state).
Hotel Accommodations: I don’t need a large suite, but I do need a place to sleep. For most events, I require one night stay before I speak and possibly the night of the event depending on how late you need me to stay.
Transportation to / from the Airport: Please provide transportation to and from the airport. If you are not able to secure transportation I will Uber to your event and include this in my final invoice.
Food: I have no food allergies so that’s easy.
I will go out of my way to make sure that there are no issues. You will get no surprises or exorbitant bills. I know that your reputation is on the line (see reason #1 above).
(1) Lavaliere microphone for myself during the presentation.
(1) Hand-held microphone for any audience participation.
Depending on the event type / size, PowerPoint may be used. If used, I will need a projector and screen.
Audiences above 250 attendees: Preferred large group set up is a raised platform (3′+) with one small table and no podium.
I need the means to get off the stage so I can walk into the audience. During the presentation, I like to move from the stage to the audience to maximize the impact of my presentation.
Lighting: During my presentation, I conduct powerful activities that require the house lights to be turned up.
Videotaping: If you are going to video the event please provide a copy of the video following the event.
Room set-up can be adjusted to accommodate smaller group sizes. If you need guidance on room setup options just let me know.
When I can I try to travel with my wife Becky and it would be great if she could also attend the event. Her badge name should read Becky LeBret. Of course, I will ask ahead of time for permission to bring Becky along.
