Speaker Terms & Conditions:

Cindy is often asked to attend or speak at conferences and festivals for free. As a general rule, she does not and her schedule cannot accommodate every request she receives which is why we ask event organizers to fill out the inquiry form with Chartwell Speakers to help us identify which events to prioritize based on the right fit and needs. Her speaker agent will get back to you shortly. The link can be found here.

Here are the top criteria:

1. There must be at least half women, minorities, or people of color who are speakers on stage.
Gender parity, diversity, and inclusion are very important to Cindy. Having female speakers and people of color on the stage is mandatory and non-negotiable. A request will be refused if this is not met. A female moderator does not constitute a female speaker.

2. She expects to be paid.
Aretha Franklin never performed on stage without receiving payment for her performances. She did not become the Queen of Soul by giving free performances. If you’re not paying your speakers, then Cindy is not the person for you. She invests a tremendous amount of time – years actually – energy, resources, investment, and her global network in her work. Her presentations are not only labors of love but value-added products. If you want them or your clients will benefit from her knowledge and experience, then you’re going to have to pay for them. The ROI or return on investment in her work is worthwhile. Payment is due upon receipt in order to book her calendar. No exceptions.

3. Business travel and accommodations are required for out of town travel.
Cindy’s home base is New York City. If it is required for her to travel cross-country in the United States or internationally, business travel, accommodations, and expenses must be covered by the event organization. No event planner would like an exhausted speaker without energy or sleep on stage now, would they?

These are the terms and conditions and we hope you will agree to these terms. They’re not complicated, unreasonable or daft, are they? They’re not heroic either, just common sense. She’d be delighted to be a part of making your event a huge success!

Thanks to Cindy Chin & David Meza who took us literally to the stars and making it an unforgettable bedtime story of a trip of a lifetime!”
Torsten Wingenter, Lufthansa

“What a fantastic event. Thank you Cindy for so much knowledge and information packed in a relatively short time. It flew. Did not drag. Had there not been another event starting, I could have continued listening and scribbling notes.”
Kathleen Hays, Bloomberg

“Wow, that is engaging, encouraging, and just overwhelming, Cindy Chin!”
Christian Muche, D:Pulse, Wunderguard

– Maggie Jiang, TCFA (The Chinese Finance Association)

“By far the most inspiring blockchain event I’ve been to this year. Let’s keep the focus on how we can make change rather than raising money for the sake of it. Glad to be a part of this.”
Liina Laas, Estonia 

“Loved your presentation! Rare to see people with real passion in blockchain tech itself and its potential vs doing ICOs for the sake of doing ICOs. Will take up on your book recommendations!”
K. Choi, Bangkok, Thailand

“As someone working not in tech, I found it inspirational and a great discussion. Wrote a short post about it with the main quotes that made me think, especially what to say about trusting AI means trusting our own capacity to continuously learn. Thank you!”
– Valentina Coco Hary, Zurich, Switzerland

“Needless to say, you’re always the smartest person in the room. So impressive, loved your talk and thanks for always being such a genuine, kind soul.”

Innovation Workshops

Cindy specializes in half or one-day strategy retreats for small groups of senior executives in fields such as entrepreneurship, innovation, transportation and travel, blockchain and ICO’s/fintech, marketing, media and smart cities. She combines her presentation with interactive group work such as scenarios or predictions, all designed to maximize discussion and innovative thinking.

I like the session because it is useful. Cindy asked all the right questions and compelled everyone to share their point of views and create discussions.

* * *

It opens up my mind and forces me to think. I like the interactions and brainstorming sessions.
– Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC)
