What will I owe TSC once I’ve completed an engagement and received payment?
Speakers will pay a Speakers Connection fee equal to 25% of the speaking fee received from the event organizer for your talk or workshop.

No – We are here to support the Speakers who work with us! Speakers only pay TSC once they’ve received payment from their speaking engagement.
If I need to cancel a speaking gig, do I still owe TSC a fee for making the connection?
No – You only pay TSC after you’ve completed your speaking gig and have received payment.

How can I get my picture and speaker information on the TSC website?
Our website features Speakers we have experience working with to-date. These Speakers have been considered and approved based on the content required to become a TSC speaker.

Yes – The items below are highly recommended:
- Speaking reel
- Testimonials from previous speaking engagements
- Talk proposals
Can I also be represented by speakers’ bureaus if I sign up to be a TSC Speaker?
Yes – TSC Speakers are not exclusive with us – we want you to be wildly successful!
Do I have to be enrolled in the “Get Paid From The Stage!!!” 6-week program to qualify to be represented by TSC?
No – The program is separate and is not required to be one of our TSC Speakers.
Is there a guaranteed number of events TSC will book me when I sign the agreement?
No – We will work hard to find events that are a great fit for your topics, so there are no guarantees on how many bookings we will secure for you.
Do I owe TSC a percentage of revenue from additional speaking engagements booked at the events that TSC places me at?
No – When you book additional engagements, the revenue is 100% yours to keep!
Can you help me book speakers not on your website?

Yes – We will work diligently to find replacement speakers for you.
What is my cost to book speakers through TSC?

Is there a minimum speaker fee that I must be able to offer to work with TSC?
No budget is too small! We will help you find excellent speakers that fit within your budget.
