Her travel, lodging and meals are covered by the client in addition to the speaking fee. A 50% deposit is required upon signing of the Agreement to secure the date.


5. Do you provide special consideration for small non-profit organizations, faith-based groups and/or small businesses/associations?

Yes. Since Teresa Kennedy wants her services to be accessible to as many people as possible, she sets aside a certain amount of time each year for outreach. If the event fits her schedule and charitable interests, we will work with you to determine an appropriate honorarium.


6. What do you mean by “added-value offerings”?

We seek to build long-term relationships, helping your constituents grow over time. This is reflected in our comprehensive process that starts before we even set foot in your office or at your event. In addition to the actual session or series, our Value Solutions can include pre-session interviews, customized hand-out materials, individual self-assessment forms for participants during the session, post-series survey, on-going support through consulting, coaching or a customized newsletter, and program resources such as our Power Living® books and CD.


7. What are your AV requirements?

Teresa Kennedy will often deliver PowerPoint presentations for large groups. In that case, she requires that you provide a LCD, a screen and a laptop. If a laptop is not available, she can bring her own. For groups over 80 people, a headset or lapel microphone would be appreciated. Download AV Requirements.


8. Do you require talks to be audio recorded or videotaped?

We don’t require talks to be audio recorded or videotaped, but we prefer that they are captured. Speaking engagements which are audio/videotaped must be provided without copyright restrictions for use by Teresa Kennedy. Client/sponsor agrees to not display, sell or distribute Speaker portion of the recording for any purpose, without prior written approval. She may also have her own camera equipment on-hand to have her assistants videotape the event and audience feedback.

"From start to finish, we thoroughly enjoyed working with Dr. Kennedy. Looking through the evaluations, she was a hit with the attendees as well. She instantly connected with our 800 participants. Some of them said that she was the favorite part of their day. Her personal story resonated with the audience and her positive energy got them on their feet. She is very interactive and engaging, offering useful information as well as inspiration. There was standing room only for her breakout session, and her book signing table was crowded… If you want a dynamic and knowledgeable speaker, then I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Kennedy." - Lara Diamond Phillips, Sharp HealthCare Read more...
