Creative Potential provides consulting, coaching, and training services by the day, and charges a daily fee. This daily fee does not include travel, lodging and printing expenses. The client is responsible for making all travel arrangements in consultation with the consultant/trainer (a list of travel suggestions and requests is available upon booking). Combined weekend fees are provided as well. One half of the daily fee is applied to each day of travel. A deposit of $500.00 is due at the time of booking. This deposit is refundable if Don Simmons must cancel due to illness or family emergency. Should travel become disrupted due to airline industry actions or severe weather, the daily fee is still applicable. All fees are due at the time of service, and all expenses should be reimbursed within 2 weeks of the date of service or within one week of the client recieving the receipts. The deposit “holds the date” for up to 1 year. The deposit is transferable to another date with 6 months advance notice, and is not refundable should the organization cancel with less than 3 months notice.
