The training fees for workshops and seminar classes cover:

The class-based fees cover a single class of any size up to a maximum of 15 participants. Additional class attendees above 15 are charged individually as indicated (pro rata the class-based training fee).

Lecture and conference fees cover preparation and delivery of the presentation to an audience of any size. Printable materials are not normally provided for presentations in this format.

Ancilliary expenses cover accommodation, meals, and local taxes and charges. Consequently these charges vary considerably according to the local cost-of-living. A fixed amount for your training locality can be quoted on request.

Other fee structures – including volume discounts – may also be negotiated in some cases.

All fees are payable to Thoughtstream Pty Ltd, an Australian company.
