Are you interested in having me speak at your event?  Let’s make it happen.

Speaking Fees

I reserve six slots yearly for non-profit organizations at $2,500 plus travel for a session that lasts one to two hours – your choice! After the initial six slots are taken, all further events for non-profits will be $4,000 per event. For-profit organizations pay $6,000 plus travel per event.

All 6 of my $2,500 non-profit spots have been booked. All remaining non-profit engagements will be $4,000.

I interview a lot of financial professionals and hands down Carolyn provides me with the most accessible information on hard topics in personal finance – health care costs, estate planning, retirement savings, etc. She’s able to explain things in a way my readers can really understand. But mostly, I love Carolyn’s passion to help people — professionals and novice — understand personal finance. It’s a rare quality to be able to talk to people at their own level.  And she does it with warmth, humor and compassion.

The truest thing I can say about Carolyn McClanahan as a speaker is that I’ve seen her present at least six times, and each time I learned a great deal, and each time I looked forward to the next one. There
are very few “home run” speakers on our circuit. She definitely belongs in that category.


  • Below is my bio, picture, and introduction you can download for your marketing.
  • Session descriptions are available for download under Speaking Topics
  • Travel includes coach fare on the airline of my choice, parking, taxis, and one or two nights hotel depending on the time and location of your event.
  • Do you want more than one session? Additional sessions on the same day are $500 and on different days are $1,000 plus the extra hotel stay.
  • Do you plan to tape the event for sale to non-attendees? The charge is an additional $500. You will be limited to six months to sell the session because the information becomes outdated.
  • I will provide my slides to you. If you want to use a different background, your organization is welcome to make the transfer.
  • My presentations are continually updated and constantly change. Fees quoted are for presentations included in Speaking Topics. If you suggest new material that seems fun and interesting, I will consider creating a new presentation at no extra cost.
