LIFELONG LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE’S SPEAKERS BUREAU
Some directors and selected volunteers of the Lifelong Leadership Institute (LLI) are available to speak on behalf of the organization at schools, special events, forums, symposiums, presentations, conferences and corporate events. As well, these individuals are available, not as representatives of the LLI, but as subject-matter experts in their own right.
At some time in the future, students enrolled in the Leadership by Design program will also be available to speak to select audiences on issues of interest. By doing so, our students will enhance their leadership capabilities, particularly their skills in written and verbal communication, and community relations.
Q1: How do I go about reserving a speaker?
A: Each speaker is responsible for his/her own speaking arrangements. You should contact the speaker directly. Both you and the speaker should come to an agreement regarding the subject matter, the attributes of the audience, address duration, a/v requirements, location and physical space.
Q2: Does it matter if the speaker appears as a representative of the LLI or as a private consultant?
A: Yes, it does since this shapes the contractual relationship. In many situations, our speakers will speak on behalf of the Lifelong Leadership Institute. However, many of our volunteers who join our speakers bureau are professionals with specialized knowledge. Where these individuals are invited to speak as subject-matter experts, and not as a representative of the LLI, they are acting as professionals in their field and their normal fees and contractual arrangements apply.
At the front end of any speaker’s agreement should be a determination if the speaker is representing the Lifelong Leadership Institute (LLI), or is acting as a private professional consultant who is providing specific subject-matter expertise.
Q3: Will there be a fee for the speaker?
A: If the speaker is representing the Lifelong Leadership Institute at a high-school presentation, or at a student-information exercise, there is no charge. If the speaker is representing the LLI at a corporate event, or at an event where a speaker’s fee and expenses are the norm, then the speaker should be appropriately remunerated. Fees earned by a speaker representing the LLI will be donated to the Lifelong Leadership Institute.
Q4: How do I go about reserving a student speaker?
A: It will take some time before students enrolled in the Leadership by Design program are trained and available to speak to your audience. We will promote their availability at that time.
