Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the cost of using Celebrity Speakers India® to book my professional speaker(s)?
There are no additional costs for using Celebrity Speakers India to arrange your speaker booking(s). We secure our commission directly from the speaker. The speaker pays Celebrity Speakers India a commission from their fee. All Celebrity Speakers India services are included in the speaker's set honorarium.
Q: How much do keynote speakers generally cost?
Speaker fees vary widely depending on the speaker's popularity, his or her availability and the event requirements. Generally, fees for keynote speeches begin around INR. 85,000, with the average national keynote fee being INR. 3,00,000. For celebrity speakers and top business experts, fees can range from INR. 10,00,000 to INR. 25, 00,000 and up. For well-known personalities fees are usually over INR. 30,00,000. And people such as Amitabh Bachchan, motivational speaker Tony Robbins, Michael Porter and Bill Clinton are over INR 1 Crore. International fees are usually 25% to 50% more. In most cases, travel and lodging expenses are in addition to the speaker honorarium, including coach/business or first-class travel, accommodations and limited out-of-pocket expenses. We can also negotiate a flat travel fee.
Q: Can I just book speakers directly?
Some speakers have their own Web sites and can be booked directly. Understandably, some event planners think they can get better pricing, quicker responses and more detailed information from speakers directly, but in actuality this is not the case.
By using Celebrity Speakers India, event planners get the best of both worlds: personal contact with speakers at any point during the booking process, plus their Celebrity Speakers India Account Executive - a knowledgeable and trustworthy assistant. There are distinct advantages to using Celebrity Speakers India® (and having a powerful advocate on your side), rather than booking speakers directly.
Q: What is the difference between "exclusive" versus "non-exclusive" representation of speakers?
"Exclusive" representation signifies that a speaker is represented by only one agency. The agency acts as an "out-sourced" office and single contact for the exclusive speaker and handles all calendar questions, event set up questions, special speaker needs, etc.
Many bureaus with exclusive speakers are committed to bringing their small group of exclusively represented speakers a certain number of engagements and income per year. A bureau with exclusive speakers might be less likely to negotiate on fees and possibly promote one of their exclusive speakers over other candidates - even if it means there might be a better speaker choice outside their bureau. Most exclusive speaker’s bureaus represent speakers that charge $25,000 and up. Celebrity Speakers India maintains close relations with speakers in all price ranges.
Celebrity Speakers India is contacted weekly by speakers interested in having us represent them exclusively. But we decline any exclusive ties in order to provide unbiased speaker recommendations to our clients. By nurturing equal relationships with all our speakers, we are free to recommend the best choice for your particular event and needs.
Q: Can I book a speaker who is exclusive with another agency through you?
Even though we have no exclusive speaker ties, Celebrity Speakers India still has full access to any exclusive speaker that might fit your event. We frequently partner with the exclusive agencies to locate the best speakers for our client events.
These agencies give us a commission from their speaker fees just like a non-exclusive speaker, so there are no extra fees to you. You will enjoy the same access to exclusive speaker calendars, fee schedules, technical requirements, special needs and other pertinent information to help you plan your event in the most efficient manner possible.
We respect many of our speaker bureau peers who maintain exclusive speaker relationships, but when it comes to client's customized needs, we feel a non-exclusive bureau such as Celebrity Speakers India can provide better, unbiased service without exclusive speaker obligations. We can fully focus our services and loyalty on you.

Q. Once we decide to utilize Celebrity Speakers India®, how do we proceed?
This is perhaps the most frequently asked question by our clients. The process is actually quite straightforward, consisting of the following basic steps..
The Call... First, you place a call to one of our event solutions specialists to discuss your objectives. Your Celebrity Speakers India® representative will then walk you through the process of selecting possible speakers for your event. We can work with you to schedule virtually any speaker you have in mind, or we can make suggestions based upon your input.
The Confirmation... Once a speaker is agreed upon, we will send to you a Confirmation Sheet. The Confirmation Sheet will include specific details such as the event sponsor, date, fee, location and any other relevant information. Signing and faxing the Confirmation Sheet back to Celebrity Speakers India® verifies your interest in the speaker and grants Celebrity Speakers India® permission to present a firm offer to the speaker on your behalf.
The Offer... After an authorized confirmation is received by Celebrity Speakers India®, we will submit a Firm Offer to the speaker on your behalf. The speaker will then review the terms of the offer. If the speaker is available on the requested date(s) and all other terms are acceptable, the signed offer will be returned to Celebrity Speakers India® and we will move forward in the process.
The Contract... Upon acceptance of the offer, your representative will issue the necessary paperwork to your organization. This paperwork includes the Contract for the engagement, publicity materials, invoices and instructions for utilizing our online Event Questionnaire. At that point, we are off and running. It is that easy to confirm a speaker for your next event!
Our service does not stop after the speaker is confirmed. We are always available to answer questions, offer ideas or just talk about your event and its progress. As the date of the event approaches, you will be contacted by one of our Event Coordinators to make the final preparations for your speaker's visit.
Our goal is to make your speaker-scheduling process run as smoothly as possible and to hopefully make it a bit more enjoyable!
