PAYMENT TERMS: Payment in full (unless agreed otherwise) is due within 14 days of receipt of invoice in order to secure the booking.

If there is anything in these terms about which you have any questions or would like additional information, please email sophiecooktalks@gmail.com.


  1. Holding Dates: Because of the numerous inquiries we receive, and our desire to serve clients with an immediate answer, we do not hold dates. If payment is not returned within 14 days of invoice, this (these) date(s) will be considered open.
  2. Cancellation: If the event is canceled by the Client, part of the fee may be refunded according to the following Refund Schedule:

Less than 30 days notice: 0% of fee
31 to 60 days notice: 50% of fee
61 or more days notice: 75% of fee

If the engagement is postponed, and notice is received in 14 days or more and rebooked within 60 days, 50% of the fee will be applied to the new date. If notice is received in less than 14 days, the full fee will be forfeited.

If for any reason Sophie Cook is unable to appear for an engagement you will be sent a full refund for the amount submitted. If educational materials were purchased, you will have the option to keep the materials or receive a refund.

  1. Recording: The fee quoted is based on the fact that there will be no audio or visual recordings made of the presentation. Please contact Sophie Cook if you would like to record the session.
  2. Room Set Up: Depending on the size of the room Sophie will require either a handheld or lapel microphone for use with the PA as she prefers to move and interact with the audience rather than use a lectern.
