We reserve the right to withdraw or amend this website, and any service or material we provide on the website, in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the website is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Website, or the entire Website, to users, including registered users.

To our Event Planners & Organizers hiring speakers:

- Enabling our Speaker Members to connect to speaking opportunities, venues and facilities, and resource people/companies who can assist them with their speaking business.
Important note before hiring an At the Podium Speaker:
At the Podium, LLC’s involvement in the speaking engagement does not extend beyond the service of providing opportunities for speakers and people looking for speakers to connect with. We take no responsibility for the actions of either the speaker or the user engaging the speaker. By agreeing to our terms, you understand that:
—At the Podium does NOT vet the talent listed in the Speaker Profile Directory. At the Podium is a connection platform rather than a traditional speakers bureau. Our Speaker Profile Directory is a way for those who want to speak to connect with those looking for speakers. Anyone who wishes to offer their services as a speaker can become an At the Podium member and be listed in our speaker directory.
—Because At the Podium encourages and supports all speakers from business professionals to professionals speakers, our speakers range in skill and experience, from just starting out to seasoned veterans. We believe speakers don’t have to be professional to have natural talents, abilities, and great content to share. Every knock-your-socks-off speaker started somewhere!
—We make no guarantees. At the Podium does not guarantee the quality of the speaker or their material. It’s up to the person booking the speaker to do their due diligence. Before you hire a speaker, you should ask for videos and testimonials, and review the speaker’s material to make certain he/she is a good fit for your event and audience. (Keep in mind that even though some of the speakers listed are just starting out, your event may be the perfect opportunity to help them to do that.)
—Speaker fees: Some speakers will be willing to speak for free, but some will require a fee. Fortunately, there are a variety of ways to compensate a speaker. You can offer to cover travel expenses, or offer an honorarium. Some may reduce their speaking fee in exchange for you purchasing their books, or allowing them to sell their books. The financial arrangements are handled directly between the person booking the speaker and the speaker (unless At the Podium has been hired to represent, negotiate, and transact for the deal).
