Our Host Agreement is an agreement for a Business or Individual to engage a Speaker for an event, podcast, or program for the Business. Whether you are bringing on a Guest to speak on only one podcast episode or you want a new recurring speaker—this Agreement has you covered. It also covers those who want to invite speakers to their event.

The Agreement discusses possible payment, who owns what, and who provides what throughout the experience. With this Agreement, you can lay it all on the table before you start recording your podcast episode or hosting your event.

This Agreement protects you, as the Host.

Who can use this

This is different from a Speaker Agreement, in that this Agreement protects the Event/Podcast Host only. If you are a Speaker/Artist that has been requested for a performance, please use the Speaker Agreement.

A HOST AGREEMENT is an Agreement for a Business or podcast Host that is bringing in a speaker for a recording or performance. This agreement outlines the rights and responsibilities of the parties so that expectations are aligned from the beginning. It can be used for a one-time speaker or a long-term speaker in a recurring role. This is a FULL agreement that protects the Event Host ONLY.
