Although the document refers to a spokesperson, it can be used for a magician, artist, etc. This speaker contract defines the conditions under which the speaker/interpreter is engaged, both the general conditions and the specific requirements of a party are all icular functions Even if the money changes ownership (i.e. you pay your speakers or reimburse your travel and accommodation expenses), you might want to create a legally binding contract. This will determine the conditions for knowing who will receive what and when. And of course, what happens during a no-show, etc. This clause reproduces the definitions in the form of the agreement, adds other definitions and stipulates, inter alia, that the binding agreement consists of both the form of the agreement and the conditions. They ask you to be a speaker for a particular reason. I`ve never seen a situation where someone says, “Whoa, you have too many changes and you`re a total diva,” because I don`t think most people who listen are like that. Speaker agreements aim to ensure the quality of your event`s content, protect your event`s reputation and, possibly, its legal and financial well-being. This clause identifies the main obligations of the customer, such as the provision of an appropriate place of organisation, appropriate technical assistance and support material; compliance with relevant legal/regulatory requirements and appropriate insurance coverage. Clause 2.6 provides for a very broad right of reimbursement in the event of losses or claims suffered against the company or the spokesperson as a result of acts or omissions of the customer, and that the customer informs the company as soon as he becomes aware of these rights.
This Speaker agreement was originally developed by ContractStore for one of its first customers and has proven itself. Michelle: I think you open up something, because creative entrepreneurs, speakers, business owners, when they start their business, usually haven`t covered their legal buttocks at all. I know I didn`t do it at first, and then I decided, “You know what could help me? A contract. From a legal point of view, it doesn`t matter who absolutely belongs to it. There is no better one than the other, but from the point of view of your spokesperson, is there anything better than the other, namely that if you are not entitled to your own presentation, you will lose the ability to give it in the future? The spokesperson acknowledges to the association all copyright in the recordings made during the order, the right to make, use and sell copies of these recordings in all media and to process the recordings reasonably deemed necessary by the association to be suitable for sale. The spokesperson releases all claims against the association that may result directly or indirectly from the sale of copies of these recordings. In return for the above-mentioned release and grant, the association undertakes to acknowledge the contribution of the spokesperson to the recordings sold and, in the material disseminated with such recordings, in the manner described by the spokesperson. Michelle: I love it because I think a lot of speakers actually feel like negotiations end after they find out what the tax is or whatever the compensation is. Michelle: I had so many clients saying, “Oh, I`m doing this for a thousand dollars.” They say yes. Then they will learn later that the keynote speaker had been paid the previous year FIVE big! Maybe the contract will be a good time to reassemble it. I understood that they could say no, but it`s worth asking. Cancellation of the Spokesperson: If, for any reason, the Spokesperson deems it necessary to cancel the undertaking indicated above, the Spokesperson undertakes to inform the association in writing immediately before the date of engagement.
The speaker waives rights to all recording benefits granted under this Agreement. . . .
