Peak Performance Speaker
For Event Planners
Christine is open to traveling anywhere. If possible, dovetail a speaking engagement with a previously scheduled event. See her upcoming events calendar.
My gift is to inspire, uplift, and expand those whom I touch, through performance, teaching and speaking. Through these platforms I share strategies that expand people's sense of identity and erase limitations so that they can achieve their wildest dreams.
I am a passionate storyteller with rich personal life experiences. There is nothing like an inspirational story to move an audience to action. My presentations are highly inspirational, delivering immediate useable tools to change and accomplish your goals, whatever they might be. The audience walks away ready to tackle any challenge that may come their way and they are left with a sense that no matter the obstacle, they can overcome it.
Usually 30-50 minutes but please let me know your parameters so that I can be flexible (longer or shorter).
What can I expect?
You can expect from me:
1. My goal is to make your job easy and successful and for the audience to leave inspired and transformed.
2. Prompt and professional communication via email and/or phone. I am both casual and highly professional at once.
2. A personal phone consultation with me prior to your event, so I can better understand how to best serve you and your audience.
3. An announcement about your event on my website if you want additional visibility.
4. An inspiring, professionally prepared presentation that focuses on achieving the outcomes you want with your audience. I share from my personal stories giving humor and vulnerability.
I am a high content speaker who is inspirational in style. My presentations fall under the umbrella Personal Development. I fit very well into: conferences, colleges & universities, non-profits, women's groups, associations, organizations or clubs, community centers, business & entrepreneurial groups, camps and workshops, large or small.
Rates are determined by multiple factors including distance, type of event, length of commitment, group makeup, expenses, and whether I also perform an aerial act. Please email email@example.com for information regarding a specific group or venue. I will be happy to email or call you to discuss more your needs and how I can meet them. When it comes to pricing and planning, I strive to remain flexible.
No. All travel expenses, except for hotel, are built into my fee in order to make the entire process easier for both you and I. With an all-inclusive fee, you pay one flat rate, and I’ll take care of the rest.
I will book my own flights unless the client requests to do so. Client airline scheduling must be approved by me in advance. If outside of the North American or Central America please ask for details.
Hotel room reservation (non-smoking), preferably at the same hotel where the meeting is to be held, are to be secured by you, the client, guaranteed for late arrival, and should be billed directly to your organization.
It varies. I live in Costa Rica, but travel about half of the year, so I am often flying from one event location to another. I secure my own transportation and am available to speak almost anywhere.
Glad you asked. Simple,
1. Email here firstname.lastname@example.org to send me the basic details of your event and to confirm my availability. You can also check my events calendar. Please include:
Your name and contact information
The name of your organization
Date of event
Location of presentation (venue name, address, city, state, country)
Which presentation are you interested in? If you need help, Christine can help.
Are you also interested in an aerial act?
Any other information you believe would be helpful.
I will be in touch to confirm availability and to discuss how I can help.
2. I will then email you a simple agreement or I welcome yours. Please fill it out, sign it and return with 50% deposit to reserve the date (remainder of fee is due the day at the venue prior to the presentation). I understand the constraints placed upon government entities with regard to payment. Travel-related expenses are included, except for hotel.
It never hurts to inquire about a date no matter how soon or far away the event date is. You are under no obligation by requesting more information. Tell me what date you want to inquire about and I'll let you know if I'm available.
I request a same day (or if out of town evening before) tech check prior to the event and to check out the room and meet some of your people. After that I generally arrive at least one hour before I’m scheduled to go on – often earlier or at your request.
Yes, absolutely. Also, feel free to pull from the website.
I allow the Sponsor to audio and/or videotape this presentation but not permission to resell or distribute my performance/speech without prior written permission. If you produce the tape for sale outside of your organization please discuss with me directly when booking me to arrange for you to purchase the license to tape, produce and sell. For any taping be sure to let me know ahead of time. That way I can make adjustments in my presentation that will give you the best results.
Please provide me an emailed copy of all pictures and videos for event for full unrestricted use.
Any press releases mentioning event must include a link to my website: www.ChristineVanLoo.com.
Will you be able to meet with our guests after her presentation to take pictures with them and sign autographs?
Yes, unless there is a schedule conflict that would require me to leave after my presentation, I would be happy to include a meet and greet with your audience members at no additional charge. I am excited to be a part of your event. If there’s something I can do to make your job easier, and your clients and audience happier and more satisfied just ask.
If the room is large then I prefer a wireless lavalier. I use an introductory video on my MacBook Air. Please provide an LCD projector, screen large enough for your audience to view the video and associated AV equipment. Please download the speaking tech rider above.
