Who can use this Speaker Agreement?
An organisation that supplies a speaker for a function – e.g. an after-dinner speech. It can also be used for other performers – e.g. conjurer or comedian.
This Speaker agreement was developed by ContractStore initially for one of its early customers and it has stood the test of time.
What is this Speaker Agreement for?
This Speaker contract sets out the terms on which the speaker/performer will be engaged, both general terms and any specific requirements for a particular function
The agreement is in three parts. It is easy to use with a one-page contract; standard terms of business; and a schedule containing the practical details of the event etc.
What are the main issues?
Suitability – the performer/speaker and their agent will want to know that the premises are acceptable. Also, that microphones and other equipment meet their requirements. And the event organiser will want some assurances on the suitability of the speaker.
Fees – as bookings are often made well in advance, a deposit followed by full payment is usual.
Cancellation – sometimes events get cancelled at short notice and the fee arrangements need to deal with this: often the cancellation fee will increase the closer it is to the date of the event.
What detailed terms does the Agreement contain?
The main points cover:
- client’s obligations
- payment of fee
- late payment
- promotional information and photography
- force majeure
- governing law and disputes
- a general clause detailing assignment, severability, third party rights, the scope of the agreement and waiver.
