How does it work?

We get the brief, agree it with the client, invoice you (30 days or less, thanks) and create the product. Thanks to HeyGen technology, the process is fast, and easy to customise to get the best result for you. Turnaround can take as little as 24-hours depending on speaker's availability.

What does it cost?

Every speaker is different, but thanks to no travel costs and other savings, the vast majority of speakers are well below £10k. The speaker gets 80% of the fee, the rest gets ploughed back into Vox Futura.

How many speakers do you have?

Currently +20, soon to be +100. We're continually onboarding speakers and identifying new talent. Find the whole roster here. Know one we should have on the books or are one? Get in touch, we'd love to talk.

Do I own the content?

You can for an extra fee. There are different degrees of rights you can buy because of the many options available. If you just want to show the content once, that's included in the fee, but we don't allow content to be uploaded to sites like YouTube etc without permission. We help you make sure you get the most out of the content created and make sure speaker work gets protected.

Can I still get Q&A time with the speaker?

Yes! We do this in a couple of ways. Either by taking questions before hand and working them into the presentation or agreeing for the speaker to Zoom in at the right time although, as you can imagine, this is more costly.
