NON-COVID RELATED Cancellation Policy - I'm so glad that we're partnering together on this event. While I'm excited about saying "YES" to your event, that means that I must often say "no" to another opportunity. With that in mind, I must have a cancellation policy in order to honor my business and family obligations. In the unlikely event that this event is canceled, the Sponsor is required to pay one-half of the Speaking Fee if Sponsor cancels the event 90 days or less prior to the event.

Pandemic Disruption/Cancellation Policy - If your local, state, national government declares a stay-at-home/quarantine order related to COVID-19: SCENARIO #1: within 90 or more days before the your event, you have the option of adapting to an online experience, rescheduling for a future date or terminating event with no cancellation fee; SCENARIO #2: If your local, state, national government declares a stay-at-home/quarantine order related to COVID-19 within 0-89 days of the your event, you have the option of adapting to an online experience, rescheduling for a future date or terminating event with aforementioned cancellation fee. If your church leadership cancels the event for COVID-19/Pandemic related reasons (with no re-schedule) BUT there isn't a stay-at-home or quarantine order, the 50% cancellation fee will apply within 90 days of the event.

Presentation Requirements - Please check boxes as acknowledgement:

Compassion International - Some conference and event planners like to include an outreach or serving opportunities for their guests. If so, Barb is an ambassador for Compassion International, a Christ-centered agency dedicated to releasing children from poverty in Jesus' name. She would love to talk with you about a small 10-minute intermission at the during a 30-minute break or lunch time to cast a vision for child sponsorship. This is an uplifting presentation and there is no absolutely NO pressure nor will individuals end up on a mailing list or recieve phone calls after the event unless they choose to make a decision to save a child's life through sponsorship. Are you open to Barb sharing more with you about a Compassion Presentation as part of your event?
