I'm posting this on behalf of a friend of mine who doesn't usually use the forums. She has been asked to speak at an education conference (run by a company who organise conferences and CPD for teachers) and has been told that the organisers will pay her fees and expenses, but no mention has been made of specific figures and she has no idea what to ask for in terms of a fee. She has spoken at several conferences before, but they've always been ones run by charitable or academic organisations rather than by a for-profit company, so they have just covered her expenses and given her entry to the rest of the conference. Can anyone suggest a rough figure that she might reasonably expect for this work? The company have indicated that if she is agreeable, they'd like to keep her on their files for future conferences and CPD sessions, so she doesn't want to undersell herself by asking for a low fee but equally she wants to be realistic!
