Speaker Fees

Thank you for your interest in safe driving!

I’m excited to work work with Safety Directors & Officers, Event Planners & Coordinators, Human Resources and Safety Coordinators, Educators, and more.

My presentation is available in-person or virtual. My speaker’s fee is negotiable.  Fees may vary depending on the following:

  • Date & location of the talk. (Local or outside the County)
  • The length of my talk – from 20 to 30 minutes, up to 3 hours, or longer.  It can be a series of presentations in one day or over a series of days to accommodate a conference, or to accommodate varied employee shifts.
  • I can cater my presentation to fit your needs.

Speaker fees:

  • It depends on what your speaker’s budget allows, my fee is negotiable.
  • Companies and large groups in San Diego County: $500 per lecture.
  • Outside the County: $1,500 – Any travel expenses, including hotel and transportation, must be provided separately from the speaker’s fee.
  • A civic group is a $100 Honorarium.
  • College classes, High Schools, Parenting Classes, and Non-Profit groups – usually no fee is required.

Military Presentations –  unless otherwise arranged, my talks to the Military are provided without charge within San Diego County.  When speaking in Los Angeles County and beyond, this may require travel expenses.  It is truly my honor to speak to those who protect our Country!

My safe driving presentation is called “Stay Alert – Stay Alive” and is designed to make you more aware of the bad driving habits that often lead to the injury and death we see on our roadways.  My goal is to “increase your awareness” and increase your chance of survival by reducing your “risk” factor.

I also provide a victim’s perspective, one speaker – two perspectives:

  • I provide a professional perspective from my years as an Air Traffic Reporter and my years as a Public Information Officer for a Police and Fire Department in San Diego County.
  • A personal perspective on what it’s like to lose someone you love and care about to a preventable traffic collision.  I share the loss of my father.  He was struck and killed as a pedestrian by a DUI driver on June 5, 1992.
  • On August 29, 2003, I was the victim of a STOP sign runner that led to major neck surgery.  My quick reaction and seat belt prevented me from being paralyzed.
  • On February 5, 2005, my daughter was injured by a DUI driver. Thanks to her alertness, she avoided serious injury.
  • I’ve been hit twice by people on their cell phones – distracted drivers.  Most recent, May 14, 2019.  

My presentation will change the way you view traffic, making you a more alert – safer driver.  As a corporate speaker, my talk is a perfect complement for companies to reinforce your company’s safe driving policies, especially the importance of “no texting or any cell phone use” when driving a company vehicle, and the importance of wearing your seat belt.  The number one reason you’ll lose an employee is due to a traffic collision.  In addition, I address concerns when driving a “company” vehicle, including road rage and collision scams.
