Want John to Speak at Your School/Church/Organization?
John is the busiest speaker in the parenting field and he consistently receives superlative ratings for both his engaging speaking style and encouraging message. John’s purpose is to inspire parents to take control of their families and raise children who will assume responsible citizenship as adults.
Booking John to speak at your church, school, or organization is a simple process:
First, either fill out and send the BOOK JOHN email form (link below) or call John’s office at (704) 860-4711. In either case, please give us your phone number and a good time to call you back.
John will call you back personally within 48 hours.
John’s standard speaking fee is $3500 plus travel expenses (round-trip coach airfare or personal car mileage (at standard rate), rental car (if necessary), hotel (usually a mid-level property such as Hampton Inn or SpringHill Suites), and a per-diem of $80 to $100 for meals, gas, tolls, and other incidental expenses.
John’s fee covers up to five hours of speaking on one day in a location east of the Rocky Mountains. If the event spans more than one day or takes place west of the Rockies, a slight increase in the fee may apply. John is also willing to adjust his fee for small groups such as local homeschool associations, small churches, or start-up schools.
After agreeing on the date(s) and fee, John will send a contract to the sponsor. The contract is one page in length. It contains no unusual clauses. In his own words, John is a “sponsor-friendly” speaker. He makes absolutely no demands and considers himself the sponsor’s employee for the duration of an event.
Within two weeks of receiving the contract, the sponsor returns it, signed, along with a 50 percent deposit.
John’s office staff provides consultation with sponsors concerning all aspects of an event, the goal of which is to ensure to the greatest degree possible a win for the sponsor and a win for attendees. With proper planning and promotion, it is usually the case that a sponsor will cover or come very close to covering the entire cost of an event.
Upon John’s arrival on site, the sponsor pays John for the balance of the fee and his pre-billed travel expenses.
John does not use a “dressing room” but is in the lobby greeting, talking to attendees, answering questions and signing books both before and after an event.
In more than thirty years as a full-time speaker, John has never been a no-show and has only been late (by ten minutes) on one occasion due to two cancelled flights. You can rely on John to arrive on-site 90 – 120 minutes prior to the start of a talk.
For a personal, no-obligation call-back from John, please complete and send the email request form. Thank you!
