Is a contract signing away your independence valid?

Not in Victoria, Australia. My Google Alert on public speaking turned up a curious article from SmartCompany titled Public speaking promoter ordered to refund business customer $4000 in first unfair contracts case in Victoria. A clause in that contract had rather outrageously said that the seminar provider, Success Resources,:

“may change the Speakers, the Hours, the Dates and/or the Location of the Seminar Services for any reason by notifying you in writing of the change and detailing substitute Speakers, Seminar Hours, Dates and/or Location”.

The 1908 Puck cartoon 1908 came from the Library of Congress.
