Bacon strives to be as flexible as possible in serving groups
and is particularly adept at adapting the content of her sessions
to the needs of each audience. The following steps are the typical
ones that occur in booking an engagement:
Step #1: Complete the Booking Information Form and submit for
#2: Schedule a time for the person who is most familiar with
the desired outcomes to talk directly to Dr. Bacon regarding
your group’s needs.
Step #3: Negotiate a mutually acceptable arrangement for services
and sign a contract to confirm the engagement
Step #4: Complete the logistics for travel, audiovisual needs,
duplication of handouts and any other final arrangements necessary
Step #5: Consultant submits personalized presentation abstracts
and handouts for duplication and travel plans approximately
30 days prior to the agreed upon date.
Fees for engagements are
dependent on a number of factors such as dates desired, nature
of the audience, the number of hours within a given day and
the number of sessions required, amount of time involved in
travel, the potential for subsequent engagements, etc. Although
there are customary fees for most events, we try not to allow
money to be the only determinant of whether or not services
will be provided to a specific group and typically will negotiate
the fee to accommodate a group’s budget when possible.
Fees include a daily rate
for on-site session including preparation and travel time but
travel costs are additional. It is preferable for contracts
to be a flat fee that includes all travel expenses to make the
total amount predictable at the outset and preclude the need
for the submission of receipts following the engagement. However,
contracts can have travel expenses as additional if the organization’s
policies require this.
