• BOOKINGS BY THIRD PARTIES – COMMISSIONS:
Third party bookings for keynote presentations (including road-shows), in-house presentations and workshops, break-away sessions and retreats, facilitated sessions, team building sessions, and the like, but excluding large-scale projects (commissions on large-scale projects are to be negotiated on a case-by-case basis): Fees listed above exclude all levies, commissions and handling charges payable to event planners; agents, speaker’s bureaus or any other third party. In the event that you book Dr Charles Sinkala via a third party, you are likely to incur an additional expense over and above the fees listed above. You are advised to discuss such additional costs direct with the third party placing your booking. While Dr Charles Sinkala places no limit on the amount of commission that a third party can levy on his fees, the market ranges between 10% and 30% on the basic fee, with 20% being the norm (there is no commission on travel costs or reimbursements). Regardless of the commission rate, Dr Charles Sinkala will only confirm third party bookings upon receipt of a copy of the written communication from the third party to the client, wherein full disclose is made to the client regarding all fee calculations.
• THIRD PARTY COMMISSIONS WILL ALWAYS BE HONOURED:
Dr Charles Sinkala will not accept direct bookings from a client where such client was referred to him on the advice of a third party, and where the client then subsequently attempts to avoid the payment of the commission (due to the third party) by placing a direct booking with Dr Charles Sinkala as opposed to making the booking via such third party.
• BELATED THIRD PARTY COMMISSIONS:
Where Dr Charles Sinkala accepts a booking directly from a client without knowing that the contact was initiated by a third party, and where it then later becomes apparent that a booking was as a result of a referral by a third party, then Dr Charles Sinkala will advise the third party in writing – where after the third party will then be entitled to bill the client direct for 20% commission on Dr Charles Sinkala’s basic fee.
• THIRD PARTY COMMISSIONS ON FUTURE BOOKINGS:
Where Andrew is booked for any subsequent event as a consequence of his appearance at an event where he was booked as a result of a third party introduction, commissions will also be due to the third party on all future bookings, to be paid by the client in addition to Dr Charles Sinkala’s fee. Where such future bookings are handled by the third party, the commission rate is to be agreed upon between the client and the third party. Where such future bookings are handled directly by Dr Charles Sinkala, commissions will be calculated at a flat rate of 10% on all fees, to be paid by the client in addition to Dr Charles Sinkala’s fee.
