An agreement for speaking services at an event.
A Speaker Agreement, also sometimes called a Speaker Engagement Agreement, Live Speaker Agreement, Speaking Agreement for Event, Event Speaker Agreement, or Agreement for Speaker at Event, is a document through which two parties come together to form a contract for speaking services at an event. The two parties are called the speaker (the party who is doing the actual speaking) and the event host (who is hosting the event where the speaker will be). Speaking Engagement Agreements are very common for both big and small events. This type of agreement can be used for a speaker giving a speech at a large event, like a conference, or even for a speaker giving a talk at a small event, like a meeting of just a few people.
A Speaker Agreement outlines the most important terms between the speaker and the client, including:
- details of the event the speaker’s services will be used;
- outlining the contractual obligations of the speaker to the company when delivering their service;
- the compensation that will be paid in exchange for the speaker’s service;
- an intellectual property provision to govern whether the host will gain any rights to use the speaker’s materials and/or recordings of the event;
- limitation of liability and indemnities to protect both parties’ interests; and
- cancellation/termination procedures.

Absolutely not! Our contracts are tailored to your business needs and situation.
Every business should have its own, tailor-made standard contracts for customers which reflect the way it does business.
Having your own standard terms will ensure that you’re able to provide the protection that your business needs and will enhance your reputation because customers will know what to expect from you and what happens if things go wrong.
To be effective, your standard terms must reflect the way you do business and protect your business from the specific risks you face. In contrast, we know that many businesses resort to relying on generic templates or re-purposing contracts obtained from competitors or previous employers. The problem is that these contracts often do not match up with your or your customers’ expectations and fail to adequately protect your business because important risks are not properly addressed. Poorly drafted or ill-suited contracts are often not worth the paper they are written on.
