Ever wonder how much money business speakers such as Jim Collins, Tom Peters, and Michael Porter pull down each time they take the stage? Workforce Management has compiled a handy chart. Here are the highlights:
- Clayton Christensen: $40,000
- Jim Collins: $45,000
- Stephen Covey: $65,000
- Gary Hamel: $50,000
- Tom Peters: $65,000
- Michael Porter: $70,000
The chartlet accompanies a feature story about management gurus — and whether they make good on the promises they make the companies they work with.
Even if speaking fees look very attractive I’m not sure I want to become a management guru. Don’t know why, just a feeling while a read the article. I guess the reason behind it is the same as behind lack of desire to write books: it feels like broadcasting and not conversation or visible impact.
Please, remind me about this post if I publish a book :)
