Do you customize?

I sure do! I know many speakers say they customize, but to them that means they sprinkle in the name of your organization and charge you extra to pronounce it right. Here's how I do it: 1) I do a computer search of your industry, your company and your competition; 2) When possible, I conduct phone interviews with audience members (sometimes I incorporate their quotes into color visuals and/or handout materials); 3) I review your trade publications; 4) You get handout materials that reflect the theme of your meeting; and 5) Titles and subjects are customized to your event.

How long are your presentations?

My presentation will be designed to fit your available time from 30 minutes to two days. I am also experienced and flexible enough to adapt when my segment needs to be cut or expanded unexpectedly. I will do whatever I can to accommodate your needs.

How can you effectively address so many different types of groups?

The fact that I've addressed a wide range of audiences (more than 35 different industries) is a big part of my value to your organization. Every group is different, but I have found that we face many similar challenges. In my areas of expertise, I bring the best of "what works" from other industries to your group.

How can we get extra value by engaging you?

Many groups that hire me to do a keynote presentation also have me do a breakout or "special group" session at the same event. This gets you a big discount on the second presentation and saves you travel and expenses.

Is your work guaranteed?

If you give me a group that is awake, sober and somewhat happy to be there, you will get a top-notch, effective presentation every time, or you'll get your money back. I will assist you in room set-up, timing and logistical parameters to optimize the presentation.

What is your business background?

I have combined my diverse background (military service, corporate human resources, corporate training and development specialist, outside sales account manager, sales trainer, office manager, project manager, entrepreneur, and behavior and habits specialist) with practical field experience to develop a unique and exciting presentation style that benefits my client's consistently.

Presently, as an outcomes based focused full-time professional speaker and habits consultant, our team here at InspiraGen Institute, LLC assists our client's in achieving measurable, tangible and significant results.

Are Ty's fees negotiable?

Sometimes. There are many factors that enter into securing a date for a program. Travel logistics, schedules, multiple bookings, early payment, product purchases, marketing letters, bartering, and recording are just some of the items that can become items of discussion.

If you book Ty for two programs at the same event, you will save the travel costs for an additional speaker and there can usually be an adjustment in the fee for the second program.

What can we expect from your demo materials?

First, I'll tell you what you can't expect. You can't expect to see your exact presentation, since each one is unique. I am known for my deep levels of customization and have many references to prove it.

You can expect to see my style of speaking and examples of my mix of business information and entertainment. You will also see that I always interact with the audience, which they really love.

How do you handle expenses?

I use coach airfares whenever possible. You'll never have to deal with meal charges, frills, or surprises!!

What kind of humor do you use?

I use only clean, non-offensive humor. Over 85% of the humor I use make fun of me and my life experiences, both professionally and personally.

You will never be embarrassed.

How do you handle banquet/luncheon settings?

I have extensive experience as a speaker and emcee at functions where food is part of the program. Special challenges exist in these settings that must be addressed for a seamless and interesting program. You don't want your attendees saying, "WHEN WILL THIS BE OVER?"

I will be happy to provide a tip sheet that will help you in designing a banquet or luncheon program. You can simply call, fax or email to request a copy.

Do you have any special services for disabled attendees?

I am FULLY AWARE of your concerns with regard to the AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA). I can and will get my handouts to you in advance, upon advance request, so your organization can have my handout materials put in Braille. I  will provide additional support materials (audio and/or video tapes) to assist anyone with a disability in getting the most from my programs. I ADJUST my programs to accommodate hearing and sight impaired attendees. I also makes it a point to be aware of the location of any physically challenged members of the audience in case I must direct the audience during an emergency requiring evacuation of the room.

I will get you COMPLIMENTS and PROTECT YOU FROM LAWSUITS when I am on the job.

Back to Top

How do you handle the business details?

My staff and I will handle all the details of your event in a professional and timely manner. Every effort will be made to keep expenses to a bare minimum. YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED for my meals while I am on the road. You will never have any alcohol or extravagant expenses of any kind charged to your master account. When possible, AIRFARE WILL BE PRORATED FAIRLY between clients.

You will find we are always courteous and very accessible. NO PRIMA DONNA ATTITUDES or EGO TRIPPERS are allowed on our team... we are here to serve you and we won't ever forget it!

What kind of Audio-Visual requirements does Ty have?

Even the greatest speech can be viewed as ineffective when the room set-up is not optimal. To help ensure that Ty's program meets your expectations and fulfills the ultimate benefit of your audience, please review A/V Requests and let us know if there are any challenges.

Ty is flexible and will work with your A/V capabilities and your technicians to maximize the effectiveness of your platform.

What do you need from us?

As soon as you engage me, I will begin my pre-program research by interviewing you briefly by phone, and then sending you a questionnaire to complete and return. I will ask for back issues of industry trade publications, newsletters, corporate reports, and a list of your group's "movers and shakers" to be interviewed.
