I contacted Jordan Sonnenblick to inquire about the possibility of a
half-day visit since the $2,200 + expenses is a bit beyond my budget. We
are located in Wheaton.
Is there anyone else in the west suburban area who would be interested in
splitting a visit on December 3 or 4? Here is the pricing information that
the author provided:
"If you wanted me to split the day between two schools, and do two
presentations per school, the rate would be $1,500, plus half of the day’s
expenses, for each school. (The rate for each school is more than half of
my usual $2,200 because I would be doing 2/3 of a day’s work at each
As a general rule, I find that my expenses in the Chicago area tend to run
around $350-$425 per day. That includes everything: airfare, baggage fees,
airport parking, gas, hotels, food, etc."
Thanks for letting me know if you may be interested.
