Pricing & Logistics

Pricing guidelines

Corporate keynote speeches:

$4000 + GST + Travel expenses (transport, accommodation, & food)

Schools, Registered charitable organizations, and Small events:

We can sometimes negotiate to suit smaller budgets by combining events with corporate groups in the same area. Steve regularly travels all around New Zealand, so this is often a possibility. 

Please fill in the booking form for your event(s), and we'll let you know if this will be an option for your date(s) / event(s).


Steve Gurney is based near Queenstown, New Zealand. If you are outside of Queenstown, then flights for your speaking event will need to be worked into his travel plans. Depending on the dates required, they may or may not be routed through Queenstown. 

When booking flights, book flexible flights, as speaking schedules frequently change.

Equipment requirements

  • A radio lapel microphone

  • Data projector

  • Large whiteboard

Steve will provide his own Apple Macbook Pro Laptop & Apple Dongle for VGA.  He also has a long-range slide changer, so the laptop can easily be set up at the back of the room if the technician so desires.

Speaking Bureaus

If you have pitched Steve Gurney to a client and are concerned that they may approach us directly, just let us know who you have pitched to and for what dates. 

If they do contact us directly, then we will direct them back to you for pricing, booking and logistics, etc and only help them directly with speech &/or workshop content planning. 

If several bureaus pitch for the same event, the one who notifies us first will be considered to own the pitch. 

Please note: It is rare for clients to contact us directly after speaking to an agency.  This section is here purely to alleviate any fears.

"Steve was perfect for our audience last night. He lit up the room with his animated speech."
