Please do understand that some speakers are more willing to make connections, and some are not.
We do not charge you for signing up. Before you confirm on a paid membership, we ask you to create your account with your first and last name, your email address and your password. You can log in to discover your own dashboard which consists of information such as contact details, speaker profile information and account settings.
You are responsible for your own content and you must ensure that you have all the rights and permissions needed to use that content in connection with the services. We are not responsible for any actions you take with respect to your content, including sharing it publicly.
When you have created your account and discovered your own dashboard, you can agree and confirm a paid membership and a fixed commission of 5% per booking to use our services for a whole year. Once your account and membership have been registered, you can be booked and request bookings through our platform.
There are two ways in which you may be booked. Firstly, you may be contacted by an event organizer who has seen your speakers profile. Secondly, an event organization may upload an upcoming event to the platform, to which you can react directly to the event organizer.
When the event organizer has contacted you through our platform, you agree to use our easy booking system to arrange the booking and administration with the information we gathered from you and the event organizer.
When the event organizer has sent you an enquiry, you will receive a notification by email as well as in your dashboard with a link to read more about the enquiry. You contact the event organizer to discuss further details and answer questions before you send the event organizer your fee and conditions through the platform.
When the event organizer accepts the your fee and conditions, your booking has been confirmed and you can start further preparation.
We automatically send for you the invoice to the event organizer with the most important and necessary details we gathered from you and the event organizer. Invoice details may include company name, name and last name, postal address, VAT, and eventually necessary other payment details of the event organizer.
We do not charge event organizers for any bookings. We only charge speakers for a yearly membership and a fixed percentage (5%) of every booking through our platform.
The membership fee has to be paid directly before your speakers profile page will be shown on our platform. The payment for your membership is final and cannot be refunded. Further we send you the invoice for the 5% of the total amount of your bookings in the first week of the month after the events have taken place. We ask you to pay us within 15 days.
