Frequently Asked Questions
My group is outside of the Twin Cities/Minnesota region; how far will Ruth travel for a speaking engagement?
Ruth and her message travel well and she enjoys having the opportunity to speak annually to a wide range of audiences, from New York, to California. Unless otherwise negotiated, travel expenses, outside the 7 county metro area of MN, will be paid by the party requesting the speech. If air travel is necessary, that would also be included, as well as per diem expenses for food and lodging in a hotel.
What does it cost to have Ruth to speak to my group?
Ruth donates 100% of her Speaking Fees and Honoraria to The Hourglass Fund Project and its beneficiaries: The Hourglass Fund at the University of Minnesota Foundation, The Karen Wyckoff Rein in Sarcoma Foundation (RIS), the Angel Foundation and Above & Beyond Cancer for their work to support cancer education, advocacy and research. All fees are customized to the client’s scope of work, but generally fall into the following client categories:
- Corporate/National Organizations: $5000 base, plus expenses
- Small Business & Not For Profit: $1000 base, plus expenses
- Scholarship Funded Engagements: Limited number available annually, based on need and Ruth's availability
