Lara Lauder Terms & Conditions of Work

Services

Lara Lauder specialises in creating and delivering presentation skills training, personal development coaching and business consultancy. We have agreed Lara Lauder will provide training and mentoring services for you. Should you require any other service at a later date then this will be discussed separately and within a proposal or written email at that time.

Fees and costs

All proposal quotes are valid for 30 calendar days from the date it’s sent to you. The quoted fee and timings are estimated based on our understanding of the assignment at the time of the proposal.

Circumstances do change and this can impact our work, the fees and timings. If this happens, I will discuss this with you and submit revised fee and cost estimates.

If for any reason you make changes that require attention by myself before we can reasonably share revised fees and costs, I reserve the right to increase fees and costs to reflect the change in workload in line with our normal rates.

Cancellations

If training is postponed or cancelled with less than 1 clear working day’s notice, 100% of the fee will be charged and if less than 3 clear working days’ notice is given 50% of the fee will be charged.

Payment terms

How I invoice depends on the services that I am providing for you and may vary at any time.

For training, mentoring & consultancy I will invoice and payment will be required before each block of sessions commences.

If I provide any other services at a later date, such as workshop facilitation I will discuss invoicing at that time.

If an invoice isn’t paid and we’ve not agreed otherwise then I reserve the right to charge a late payment fee on outstanding balances, equivalent to 5% above the current Bank of England base interest rate.

No VAT is added to our invoices although this will change. I will be in touch to confirm the details.

Timelines for deliverables and acceptance

For all our work, we’ll agree together a delivery date and schedule. I will require you to write to confirm your acceptance of work before work is started. However, if any part of an assignment is published or made available to you then this will also be deemed as accepted by you. If further work is required after acceptance, we’ll agree the terms of this before this additional work is started.

If for any reason you’d like to stop working with me I ask you give reasonable written notice. You’ll be liable to pay fees and costs for all completed training, & consultancy plus any fees and costs relating to work that has been committed to by you or on your behalf.

I may end our engagement if for any reason you fail to meet the terms in this document or in the event of insolvency, liquidation, winding-up, and dissolution or should you go into receivership or administration; or if you fail to provide data, information or other communications that are reasonably required or requested in order for us to complete an assignment. In these circumstances, you’ll be liable to pay us for all work completed or committed by us and the payment must be made when the contract ends.

If I am unable to deliver work to you due to things outside our control, including force majeure I reserve the right to end or suspend our involvement in any project.

If our agreement does end, all rights and liabilities set out in these terms and in the proposal will remain in full force and effect.
