Terms of Customer Engagement Agreement
Rate Card. Rate card may be adjusted by Company after providing a 30-day notice written to the Customer.
Initial Services. Company will provide the marketing services (the “Service” or “Services”).
Speak On Podcasts Services
The customer decides on the service package specified on this page.
The length of the agreement is 4 months (for 10 podcast interviews) or 6 months (for 20 podcast interviews).
Payment Terms. Billed in advance on a recurring basis or as a one-off payment.
We expect customers to reply to our communications within 48hrs. This is vital to ensure that we do not lose a potential podcast interview booking
In the event an interview opportunity is lost due to a delay in communications from the customer/failure to book in the expected timeframe, the interview will be deducted from the podcast booking target number. (i.e. 20 podcast bookings will reduce to 19 podcast bookings).
The same will apply should:
- A customer fail to attend a podcast booking scheduled without 24hrs prior notice
- Cancel a schedule a podcast booking with no attempt to rearrange or
- The host canceled the interview due to multiple rescheduling or no shows.
Termination; Campaign Hold; Restart and Expiration of Service Term
Termination for Default. Either party may terminate this Agreement on 30-days notice to the other Party in the event of a breach of any provision of this Agreement by the other Party including, in particular and without limitation, failure to make payments hereunder when due, provided that, during the 30-day period, the breaching Party fails to cure such breach.
Effect of Termination. Upon the termination hereof, (1) Company’s obligations to provide the service, shall terminate and (2) the Customers obligations to make payments which have not yet come due hereunder shall terminate, except as otherwise may be set forth in the payment terms.
Putting a Campaign on Hold. The Customer may pause their campaign if needed on one occasion throughout the entire duration of the contract.
The pause duration can be up to 30 calendar days. Please note that a 30-day pause may delay the campaign by 45 days as it takes some time for us to pick up traction again.
To pause an assignment the customer must provide a minimum of 1 weeks notice by informing their Customer Success Manager or Booking Agent.
The only action that we are able to pause is the initial outreach, which means the customer is still expected to attend interviews already scheduled (or appropriately reschedule) and reply to all prospective podcast host booking requests which arise during the pause period.
Commitment conditions apply during pause period as well.
End of the Campaign process. As the campaign and our engagement comes to an end Speak On Podcasts are committed to handing over the campaign details in the most efficient way.
At a minimum, these are Speak On Podcast’s immediate actions:
- We will send you one final email with all the details of any upcoming interviews booked.
- If we are made aware of any changes to the scheduled interviews we will simply forward the email to you for you to liaise directly with the podcast host/producer.
- We’ll continue to send out follow up emails to podcast hosts who are still in the follow-up process (so you might get some bonus interviews booked). If we receive any ‘interested’ replies, we will forward these to you for you to coordinate.
- We will add the podcast host/producer email addresses to your podcast reporting sheet so you can contact them directly.
- If any changes are made to the interview scheduling, you will need to coordinate with the podcast host directly (and update your calendar appointments).

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings related to the subject matter hereof. No prior agreement, understanding, statement, allegation, advertisement, brochure, utterance or thought in any form however expressed or unexpressed can or shall be used to modify, simplify, or aid in the interpretation of the provisions of this Agreement. There are no penumbras or emanations related to the subject matter hereof.

This Agreement cannot be modified except by a written agreement entered into subsequent to the date of this Agreement that all Parties shall have executed and which identifies itself as an amendment hereto. None of the provisions of this Agreement shall be deemed to have been waived by any act or acquiescence on the part of any Party, but only by an instrument in writing of such Party. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement shall constitute a waiver of any other provision hereof or of the same provision on another occasion.
Construction. Each provision contained herein shall be construed (absent express provision to the contrary) as being independent of each other provision contained herein, so that compliance with any one provision shall not (absent such an express contrary provision) be deemed to excuse compliance with any other provision. Where any provision herein refers to action to be taken by any person, or which such person is prohibited from taking, such provision shall be applicable whether such action is taken directly or indirectly by such person. References to an Attachment, Exhibit or Schedule are, unless otherwise specified, to an Attachment, Exhibit or Schedule attached to this Agreement; and references to Sections are, unless otherwise specified, references to Sections of this Agreement.

Independent Contractors. The Parties are independent contractors, and neither Party is an agent of the other for any purpose or has the authority to bind the other.
Third-Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement does not create any third-party beneficiary rights in any individual or entity.
Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed and enforced in accordance with, and the rights of the parties shall be governed by, the law of the State of Delaware excluding choice-of-law principles of the law of such state that would require the application of the laws of a jurisdiction other than such state.
Assignment. Consent is not required for an assignment of this Agreement in connection with a sale or other disposition of substantially all the assets of the assigning party’s business. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement binds the successors and assigns of the Parties.
Agreement to Arbitrate. In the event of any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement arising from or relating to this agreement or the breach thereof, the Parties shall use their best efforts to settle the dispute, claim, question, or disagreement. To this effect, they shall consult and negotiate with each other in good faith and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a just and equitable solution satisfactory to both parties. If they do not reach such solution within a period of 60 days, then, except as provided in other Sections, upon notice by either party to the other, all disputes, claims, questions, or differences shall be finally settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any state or federal court of competent jurisdiction located in San Francisco, California, and to the extent necessary, any other court or judicial body of competent jurisdiction necessary to enforce the arbitrator’s award against the non-prevailing Party.
Selection of Arbitrator. The initiating Party shall select a single arbitrator who shall:
be an attorney licensed to practice in any state in the United States,
have experience in commercial litigation and commercial arbitration, and who shall certify that
the arbitrator and the arbitrator’s firm has never had any direct or indirect business or personal relationship with any of the Parties,
the arbitrator will use best efforts to conclude the arbitration and issue an award within 90 days of the date of final selection as the arbitrator, and
the arbitrator will employ the latest technological tools and techniques, including group video conferencing, group audio conferencing, email and other technological tools, to minimize the extent of possible travel by the arbitrator, the Parties and witnesses, and to minimize expenses to the extent possible.
If another Party shall nominate by notice to the other Parties another arbitrator who meets these qualifications prior to 15 days after receipt of the initial notice of intention to arbitrate, then the nominated arbitrators shall within 10 days after the end of such 15 day period select another single arbitrator who meets these qualifications to manage solely the arbitration. Otherwise, the initiating Party’s arbitrator shall be the sole arbitrator.
Confidentiality. Except as may be required by law, neither a Party nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of all Parties, except to the extent necessary to enforce the award in courts and judicial bodies of competent jurisdiction.
Baseball Arbitration. Each Party shall submit to the arbitrator and exchange with each other Party in advance of the hearing their last, best offers. The arbitrator shall be limited to awarding only one of the offers submitted. The offers may include awards of monetary damages and such other relief and awards as the Party may seek (for example, without limitation, the compelled execution of documents or equitable action to be obtained by court action).
Duration of Arbitration. The award shall be made within 90 days of final selection of the arbitrator, and the arbitrator shall agree to comply with this schedule before accepting such appointment. However, this time limit may be extended by agreement of the Parties or by the arbitrator if necessary. Failure of a Party to cooperate in a timely fashion with the requests of the arbitrator shall not be a reason for the arbitrator to delay the making of the award, and the arbitrator may make such evidentiary conclusions against the non-cooperating Party as the arbitrator may deem appropriate.
Award of Costs. The arbitrator shall award to the prevailing party, as determined by the arbitrator, all of the prevailing party’s costs and fees. “Costs and fees” mean all reasonable pre-award expenses of the arbitration, including the arbitrators’ fees, administrative fees, travel expenses, out-of-pocket expenses such as copying and telephone, court costs, witness fees, and attorneys’ fees of the prevailing party.
Judicial Dispute Resolution. In each instance where arbitration is unavailable, or an injunction is sought where time is of the essence, then the following provisions will apply.
Injunctions. The Parties acknowledge and agree that any violation of this Agreement will cause irreparable harm for which the other Party may not be fully or adequately compensated by recovery of monetary damages. Accordingly, in the event of any such violation or threatened violation, the aggrieved Party shall be entitled to injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction without the necessity of posting a bond or other security (or, where such a bond or security is required, the Parties agree that a $1,000 bond will be adequate) in addition to any other remedy available at law or in equity.
Jurisdiction. The Parties (a) hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submit to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Los Angeles, California, for the purpose of any suit, action or other proceeding arising out of or based upon this Agreement, (b) agree not to commence any suit, action or other proceeding arising out of or based upon this Agreement except in such courts, and (c) hereby waive, and agree not to assert, by way of motion, as a defense, or otherwise, in any such suit, action or proceeding, any claim that it is not subject personally to the jurisdiction of the above-named courts, that its property is exempt or immune from attachment or execution, that the suit, action or proceeding is brought in an inconvenient forum, that the venue of the suit, action or proceeding is improper or that this Agreement or the subject matter hereof may not be enforced in or by such court.
Waiver of Jury Trial. Each Party hereby waives its rights to a jury trial in respect of any action based upon or arising out of this agreement, the securities or the subject matter hereof or thereof. The scope of this waiver is intended to be all-encompassing of any and all disputes that may be filed in any court and that relate to the subject matter of this transaction, including, without limitation, contract claims, tort claims (including negligence), breach of duty claims, and all other common law and statutory claims. This section has been fully discussed by each of the Parties and these provisions will not be subject to any exceptions. Each Party hereby further warrants and represents that such Party has reviewed this waiver with its legal counsel, and that such Party knowingly and voluntarily waives its jury trial rights following consultation with legal counsel.
Award of Costs. The court shall award to the prevailing party, as determined by the court, all of the prevailing party’s costs and fees. “Costs and fees” mean all reasonable pre-award expenses of the action, including the court’ fees, administrative fees, travel expenses, out-of-pocket expenses such as copying and telephone, witness fees, and attorneys’ fees of the prevailing party.
