We recognise that plans can change, and unfortunately, there will be times when cancellations incur costs, and as a result, the following policies apply.
If you are wanting to chat about options for cancelling or rescheduling a course, please contact us to discuss further.
Speaking Savvy aims to be flexible and accommodating with training, and recognises that in some cases there are exceptional circumstances in which a charge may be waived. If there is a compelling reason, we can reschedule your training to another date. Work commitments are generally not considered a compelling reason.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make any changes. All cancellations and reschedules must be made in writing.
In-house training course cancellation
Training courses held in-house at your premises will be invoiced at least two weeks prior to the course being held and must be paid for prior to the date of the training, unless formal procurement arrangements are in place with Speaking Savvy.
A full refund will be provided on the cost of the course, provided we receive notification of cancellation at least 14 days prior to the course date.
A 50% refund will be provided up to 7 days prior to the course date, and cancellations received less than 48 hours before the course are not refunded.
If you would prefer to reschedule to another date within 12 months of the original date then no fees are incurred.
In the unlikely event of a course requiring rescheduling due to instructor illness or unavailability, the cost of the course will be refunded in full, or alternatively rescheduled at a mutually acceptable date.
Public Training Course Cancellation
For public courses hosted by Speaking Savvy, full payment is required at the time of booking online, or if making an electronic funds transfer by invoice, at least 7 days prior to the course date.
In the event of cancellation by the attendee, our policy states, a full refund will be given, provided we receive notification of cancellation in writing at least 14 days prior to the course date. A 50% refund will be provided up to 7 days prior to the course date and cancellations received less than 48 hours before the course are not entitled to a refund. Refunds will not be given for a “no show” on the day.
In the event of a course requiring rescheduling due to instructor illness or unavailability, the cost of the course will be refunded in full, or alternatively rescheduled at a later date, should you not be able to attend the rescheduled course a full refund will be provided. You may also transfer a booking to another person subject to notice and cancellation periods.
Speaking Savvy reserves the right to cancel courses and change course location. In the event that a course must be cancelled or the location of the course changed, registrants will be informed a minimum of 7 days prior to the start of the course.
Tickets are transferable subject to notice and cancellation periods outlined above.
Participants wishing to transfer registration to another person should email email@example.com and include their name, the name of the course they wish to transfer their ticket from, as well as the name of the course they wish to transfer their ticket to.
Speaking Savvy does not guarantee that a particular course will be available. If this is the case, a credit for another course title will be offered where possible, and subject to the notice and cancellation periods outlined above.
Speaking Savvy will also allow the registration fee to be applied to a different Speaking Savvy course or coaching program.. This request must be made in writing, and can be used in a period of time not exceeding 18 months from the original course registration.
Limitation of Liability
If a course is cancelled or rescheduled by Speaking Savvy, all liability is limited to the amount for which the course was purchased (including any fees or charges). Unless required by law (including the Australian Consumer Law), Speaking Savvy will not be liable for any other losses incurred as a result of the cancellation, rescheduling or relocation of an event, including any travel and accommodation expenses.
