How much should I charge for a speaking fee?
Here’s a rule of thumb for appropriate pricing: Newbie speakers might earn $500–$2,500 for a talk. Beginning speakers, or those just establishing a brand with their first book, might earn $5,000–$10,000. Those with several books and other forms of “social proof” might draw $10,000–$20,000.
Do TED speakers get paid?
TED does not pay speakers. We do, of course, cover travel costs and provide excellent hotel accommodation — as well as a covetable pass to all five days of TED. Most speakers stay for the whole conference, soaking up the talks and connecting with other attendees.
How can I invite speakers for free?
Send out emails to your particular contact in every organization to find out if they can give you any leads on good “free” speakers. This word-of-mouth recommendation is often the best route because the speakers know the subject and the donor community responds well to anyone worth their salt.

A facilitator who is just starting out in North America might charge between $100-$125 per hour. Their daily rate which would typically include design, delivery and document might be between $1500-$2000 per day. This would be for a relatively straightforward event with 20 or fewer participants.
