Action-Oriented

Honours Diverse Ways of Knowing

Tailored to Audience

An inspiration story is great, but we also recognize that audience members want to leave our sessions with action-oriented steps. We deliver on that.

We place emphasis on lived experience, historical and statistical data, and traditional  knowledge  to make our content relevant and informative while honouring diverse ways of knowing.

We have a bank of engagement practices and techniques to bring the appropriate amount of energy,  messaging, and case studies to every unique audience.

Like our speaking topics, our speaking service options are many.

Keynote and Program Speeches

 

The service deliverer will create a speech of 30 to 120 minutes. Speeches are typically accompanied by presentation slides. A facilitated questions period is worked into presentation time unless otherwise requested.

Masters of Ceremony

 

The service deliverer can provide MC services with energy, enthusiasm, and with the intent of creating an overarching narrative to the event. A pre-engagement session with the program coordinators and summaries of program speakers will be required.

Panels, Moderator, and Fireside Chats

 

The service deliverer will contribute to panel discussions on the desired topic with the expectation that their contributions will centre ancestral accountability, climate justice, and/or equity to varying degrees.

Discussant Lead

 

The service deliverer will lead formal or informal discussions. Usually done at a larger event, this may be part of the formal program, or it may be included as a side-opportunity and is used to create a safe space for underrepresented or marginalized people at the event.

In addition to service delivery, we can also handle event registration, media promotion, donation collection, and follow-up.

Each of our public events average 150 to 500 registrants, and $400.00 to $8,000.00 in donation collection. We support our clients in public events by offering to take over ticket registration, social media promotion (social media graphics, flyers), and donation collection. We are also able to record the session for later posting. The client is charged the hourly rate and this time is included in the contract coordination, development, and follow-up quote.

 

Our Services Packages are perfect to bring back to teams for approval.

The price structures are based on the kind of client: Non-Profit and Youth, Private, and public. This is one of many efforts we make to ensure our services are as accessible as possible. Please select the Speaking Services Package that best suits the your organization.

In our Speaking Services Packages, you’ll find more details about our approach to service delivery,  topics, and our price structure.
