The honorarium, minus all deposits, must be paid in full by midnight after the last contracted speech by Jessica. Late payments will receive a 10% late fee on the total honorarium.
JCMS accepts checks, credit cards, cash and wire transfers.
Jessica can provide the best service to her clients by limiting herself to no more than 3 presentations per day. An additional honorarium is associated with an additional presentation, however there are discounts for multi-speach tours.
When the client provides a deposit, JCMS locks down the client’s preferred dates and those dates become unavailable to anyone else. Once paid, the deposit is credited toward Jessica’s full honorarium.
Because most events are booked well in advance, the deposit ensures that both you and Jessica are committed to your event.
Once the dates are locked in, Jessica is committed to the client’s event. If an emergency forces her to cancel her appearance, JCMS will refund your organization’s deposit within 60 days. If your organization is forced to cancel, JCMS will not be able to refund the deposit due to having lost business when blocking out the reserved dates; turning down potential clients.
Step 1: Send the JCMS team an email that includes the date of your event.
Step 2: Send payment for the holding fee to lock in the dates. This deposit is usually 50% or more of the total fee.
Step 3: If the dates are still available and JCMS has received the holding fee, JCMS will lock in the dates for your organization.
Step 4: The JCMS team will send you a Bio Packet that includes biographical information about Jessica as well as a suggested speech introduction and media materials for promotion.
