Sample charges for consulting
My 2012 consulting rate is $2520 per day. Additional time for preparation, report, or other non-travel work is $315 per hour. Travel time is charged at $90 per hour. Travel expenses are recharged at costs.
I am happy to negotiate a lower rate for larger projects, especially if part of my time will be project management rather than expert-level consulting.
For seminars, my daily rate is $3340, includes PDF files of all class notes, and has no limit on the number of attendees.

Payment terms are "due upon receipt."
The charge line for "requested post-trip consulting work" is optional and often not required. Short reports are provided upon request; however, this line is included as a contingency for clients that wish to write purchase orders in advance of the work and may later request extended follow-up work outside of the consulting or training time and travel expenses.
I will happily check airfares and travel time to your location to provide a tailored project estimate.
