Faqs

Let’s try to answer some of your most frequently asked questions…

What do you typically speak about?

I’ve spoken at schools and conferences on topics ranging from student leadership to school pride, bullying to respect, and virtually everything in-between. For more information regarding specific presentations, visit my speaking page.

How much do you charge?

For information on fees and how much it would cost to have me out to your school or conference, please fill out a contact form or email me at Scott@ScottBackovich.com, and we will get back to you with a full quote ASAP.

We have very limited funds for our event/school. Can you help?

Definitely. I never want a school or conference to miss out on a phenomenal day because the economy is kicking their butt. To help explain some additional options available, download our free “Booking on a Budget” ebook here.

How old are you?

Two-hundred and eighty-three (I have Benjamin Button’s disease). Take that old age.

What if I want to speak to someone who has hired you before?

I know that having someone speak at your conference or school is a huge deal, and that you want to make sure you’re hiring a speaker who can truly impact your students. To contact someone directly, go to my reviews page and check out the left hand side. If you would like more references, email us at Scott@ScottBackovich.com and we will toss some additional contacts over ASAP.

How far do you travel to speak?

I’ve spoken at schools, conferences, and retreats across all of the US and Canada. If you exist on planet Earth (or near the moon and would prefer space travel), I can definitely come out to speak.

How much are your travel fees?

All travel expenses are built in to 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 want to become a professional youth speaker. Can you help?

For sure. I would in no way be in the position I am today without having AMAZING mentors and experienced speakers helping me along the way. If you would like some tips or have some specific questions I can help you with, email me here.

What if I have questions not answered on this page?

Send me an email, call the number on my contact page, toss over a carrier pigeon, or even send Hedwig (Hogwarts residents only). I’d love to help answer any further questions you might have.
