Perfect for Events
12 March 2017
This contract is perfect for my requirements. As an event organiser who contracts multiple speakers for each of my events, it enables me to efficiently create a relevant contract for each speaker. The document is a very comprehensive agreement with many clause variations which allows me to personalise it according to my speaker requirements.
