Lisa Sharon Harper Speaking Events: Information and Guidelines for Event Hosts
Thank you for your interest in inviting Lisa Sharon Harper to serve as a speaker for your upcoming event. The ministries of speaking, teaching, training, organizing, and public witness are core to Ms. Harper’s work and vocation. She is grateful for opportunities to carry out this work in service to your community.
Honorarium and Expenses
As event hosts, you agree to provide an honorarium and cover costs associated with Ms. Harper’s travel to and from your event.
Ms. Harper is particularly sensitive to the needs of nonprofit organizations and those with limited funds. Inability to pay the established honorarium should not discourage you from inquiring completing the application. We are committed to reviewing each request on a case by case basis and working with you on ideas and alternative resources. Our experience has shown that seeking collaborative co-sponsors to share the costs and responsibilities of an event can be a helpful approach.
Travel costs covered, booked, and reimbursed by the host include:
Round-trip coach airfare (reservations made by the host)
Ground transportation (to and from airport/event)
Meals throughout the duration of the event
Travel expenses (flights, hotel, ground transportation, meals) for a companion to assist Lisa
Event hosts are responsible for securing hotel accommodations for the speaker using direct billing to your organization. Hotel accommodations should include a comfortable and quiet room with telephone, workspace, high-speed internet capability and fax connection (enabling Ms. Harper to perform necessary work away from the office), restaurant, and if possible an exercise facility.
Event hosts are responsible to make all flight arrangements using direct billing to your organization, using United Airlines whenever possible. Event hosts are also responsible for arranging a representative to meet the speaker at the airport and take him/her to the hotel and to and from related events during his/her stay. A ride must also be arranged to return the speaker to the airport.
Press & Media
Event hosts agree to help with attendance by contacting area churches, social and civic organizations, the media, colleges, and universities, and the general public. If a media outlet in your area is interested in interviewing Ms. Harper, please have this outlet email us at email@example.com.
Book sales are an important way Ms. Harper’s message can continue to strengthen and edify her audiences beyond her time with them. As host, you agree to purchase and arrange for Ms. Harper's latest book to be sold at your event. We ask that you arrange for a local bookstore to manage book sales. Alternatively, you may order books directly from the publisher or from an online vendor. In either of these cases, you will need to arrange for volunteers to manage book sales onsite.
