As we approach the month of March, a month where we celebrate women and mothers. I will be posting news on Women achievements. Be it a woman entrepreneur, A Leader, an artist. Every woman who is on top of her game we shall celebrate her in MonFinance.
So to start, we all know and love the work of Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Hillary has signed up for speaking circuit and will charge a whooping USD 200,000 per speaking appearance, making her one of the highest paid public figures on such appearances.
Notably her salary as the Secretary of State, which she relinquished less than a month ago was USD 186,000.
“Now that she’s out as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton isn’t going to be hurting for money, thanks to speaking fees of more $200,000 per speaking appearance, according to a source familiar with the situation,” Buzzfeed reported.
Clinton will be represented by the New York-based Harry Walker agency, which also represents her husband Bill Clinton, the former US President.
According to CNN, Clinton gave 471 paid speeches during his 11 years as a private citizen and raked in an average of USD 1,89,000 per event – joining the speaking industry’s rarefied six-figure circle occupied by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Al Gore, Dick Cheney and Sarah Palin.
Clinton, however, according to Politico, will do some speeches pro bono, particularly those for the charities and causes she champions. She will also be involved in non-profit works.
