The following are the most frequently asked questions about booking an event with Tao Porchon-Lynch.
1. What type of events does Tao do?
Tao actively teaches yoga workshops for all levels, as well as shares her wisdom at conferences and other types of events. She also offers custom programs for corporations.
2. How long are Tao’s programs?
Her yoga workshops are usually two hours. Talks can vary in format. The popular Conversation with a Master and The Gandhi Effect programs are both 90 minutes with Q&A. Whatever the format, she will tailor the program to your needs and objectives.
3. What are Tao’s fees?
For yoga workshops at a studio, her fee is $2,500 with a 60/40 split of the revenue after that. Her speaking fee ranges from $2,500 – $20,000+ US$ depending on the level of customization, the audience, the length of the program, the added-value offerings, the amount of time required to travel to the engagement, and whether it is jointly presented. For all events, the client covers travel, lodging and meals for two people in addition to the fee. A 50% deposit is required upon signing of the Agreement to secure the date.
4. What are your AV requirements?
The Conversation with a Master and The Gandhi Effect programs have accompanying PowerPoint presentations. In that case, she requires that you provide a LCD, a screen and a laptop. We will provide the presentation on a drive. A headset or lapel microphone would be appreciated since Tao’s voice is soft.
5. Do you require talks to be audio recorded or videotaped?
We don’t require talks to be audio recorded or videotaped, but we prefer that they are captured. Speaking engagements which are audio/videotaped must be provided without copyright restrictions for use by Tao. Client/sponsor agrees to not display, sell or distribute Speaker portion of the recording for any purpose, without prior written approval. She may also have her own camera equipment on-hand to have her assistants videotape the event and audience feedback.
6. Can you provide a biography and photograph for promotional materials?
Pictures and bios can be found in the Media Resources area. Please email email@example.com for access.
