Speaking Fees and Formats





This is an overall themed format with one sole goal in mind: to move your audience.  It is not designed to sell me, my services, or you or your services.  It is designed to energize the audience and get them inspired toward a goal that plays a role in their position, life or both.  My Keynotes are generally 1 hour not including Q & A.  CD and sample engagements are available upon request.

Our 60-90 minute keynote presentations can be a great opener or closing presentation for physician appreciation dinners or medical conferences.

Workshops and Seminars

Many times organizations utilize the term seminar and workshop interchangeably.  In reality, seminars are designed for the audience to learn through the presenter, with limited audience participation other than Q & A.  Whereas workshops are more audience participated, with roundtables, breakout sessions, and one-on-ones.  I offer both formats and depending on the topic you are interested in can customize the best solution for your audience. Typically seminars are 45 min-1 hour and workshops are 1/2 day to full day.




Team Engagement

These are events designed to get your team to “play” outside of their usual setting.  They can range from offering brainstorming sessions, to fun activities, or post-change re-engineering.  They are typically 1-3 full days, with locations and activities custom designed according to your team.   If you are unsure about what best meets your objectives, feel free to contact me and we can discuss more details.

Testimonials:  “We had the distinct pleasure of working with Farnaz Namin-Hedayati, Ph.D., Center for Work Life, for the past couple of years when she was the keynote speaker for two of our Central Florida Employment Council workshops. I was very impressed with Farnaz both as a presenter, motivator and professional. We are thrilled to say that her skill as a trainer kept our diverse group fully engaged. Here presentations are extremely powerful and practical! Whether you want to improve and expand your team’s skills or just stretch their comfort zone, the course Conflict Management was amazing. Although many of her ideas were new, everyone found it easy to understand these new and inspiring concepts about Management Models for Resolving Conflict in the Workplace. The feedback has been positive all around and we look forward to working with her once again in the near future.”

                             Paulette Weir, CFEC Director, Central Florida Employment Council

As managers we need to know how to solve complex issues and resolve differences of opinions between employees and council members. Your strategies for dealing with conflict were a tremendous help and will really help us moving forward in solving problems as they arise.
