Presentations are 45-60 minutes long. They include a PowerPoint presentation along with viewing of items related to the presentation.
Presentations fees are $300 plus travel and accommodation expenses when necessary.
I have my own Zoom account we can use for virtual presentations for groups less than 100. For groups over 100 members the guild can host the meeting or the presentation can be upgraded to 300 members for an additional $150. Contact me to talk about the options for groups over 100 members.
