Behind The Veil Of Big-Name Public Speaking

Every now and then you see a speaker's fee that stops you in your tracks. $100,000 for Sara Palin. $200,000 for Bill Clinton. DEP Commissioner Dan Esty is in the news (again) today for a $15,000 speaking fee he collected in Cleveland.

Clinton is the Michael Jordan of this world. In the ten years since leaving office, he has earned - from speaking engagements - $75.6 million.

Today we'll take you at least part way behind the curtain of the big-time speaking industry as we talk to Richard Sguarman, director of the Connecticut Forum about what it costs to land a big fish and why.
