If you can share me with another organization or school in your area, your fee can be reduced. This way my empowering message reaches more people, and you save money. It can also support you in community building. I’m easy to promote to decision makers for professional organizations, community groups, schools, wellness programs and well, any company that cares about its employees. Just forward them my speaker sheet or a link to lindobacon.com and share your plan.
Consider combining your conference with other organizations in the area, such as a dietetics or psychotherapy trade organization. Share the costs and broaden the audience.
Schools, in particular, often host speakers, and are grateful for compelling suggestions. Individual departments and student groups are also possibilities; my work is popular in a diverse range of departments, including psychology, women’s studies, gender studies, queer studies, biology, health, nutrition/dietetics, nursing, and medicine, and I have frequently been hosted by student groups.
