The Price Of Political Speakers
...Bush earns between $100,000 and $150,000 per speaking engagement, the annual tuition of two to four USC students.
Bill Clinton: $195,000
Hillary Clinton: $200,000
Condoleeza Rice: $100,000-150,000
Dick Cheney: $75,000-$100,000
How Much Can You Charge For Speaking?
...A recent article detailed the fees certain politicians charge for speaking. They are substantial. Bill and Hillary are right around $200K. Al Gore is a relatively modest $100K. On the Republican side, George Bush comes in at $110K, and Dick Cheney $75K – $100K. I guess he can’t charge more than his former boss.
What you charge is a complex calculation involving your status, your demand, and the quality you want to project. How have you made the sums come out? I’d be delighted to hear your experiences in the tricky world of paid public speaking.
