Recent and Upcoming Presentations [Updated September 2021]

In the spirit of being green, this page will house links to my recent presentations, allowing attendees access without having to print copies for everyone. Presentations will  be up for at least 6 months.  If you have attended one of my presentations and want access to slides and handouts that are not posted here, please contact me (bspratford@hotmail.com) or leave a comment on this page.

My general 2021 rates are as follows:
  • Virtual: Rates begin at $350 for a 60-90 min webinar and go up to $1,000 for full day, interactive options. Contact me to craft your plan and figure out pricing. Discounts available when you schedule 3 or more in one calendar year.
  • Local [does not require an overnight stay]: Rates begin at $800
  • Travel [requires an overnight stay but I can drive]: Rates begin at $1500 
  • Travel [requires an overnight night stay and air travel]: Rates begin at $2000 
  • Consulting-Virtual [you get to pick my brain officially]: Rates begin at $75/hr
    • If you have hired me to present, I provide free consulting before and for up to 6 months after.
These rates do not include my travel costs. Those are billed out for exact costs with an invoice; however, I do provide a not to exceed dollar amount for travel for your budgeting purposes.

Also, please note that by hiring RA for All all parties must agree to this Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Mission Statement:
RA for All’s programs are crafted and delivered with the understanding that increasing the collection, discovery, and circulation of titles written by marginalized voices in all public libraries is not a trend. It is a requirement. By contracting with RA for All, library organizations must take the position that libraries are not neutral, and understand that the goal is to become an anti-racist library, an organization that does the work to begin actively breaking down the walls of the systemic oppression of marginalized view points, walls which have been built over centuries but cannot be allowed to stand any longer. This work is not easy and will be uncomfortable at times, but getting comfortable with being uncomfortable is part of this process. RA for All is committed to helping you craft an actionable plan to begin this important journey.
