Who gets paid what in a seminar, workshop or speaking engagement?

I'm starting to get a few requests for speaking engagements and seminars, and I'm not quite sure what to expect on the business side of things. At the moment, these are private individuals who have a little experience with event planning, and know that I could draw a decent audience to a workshop. I'm a little unsure about how profits should be split between me and the organizer. I don't have a problem with the organizer making some money, but I'm the one providing the content, and I want to be fairly compensated. How does this generally work?
Also, is it reasonable to set a minimum? (As in, I'd be willing to do this as long as you can guarantee me $X, or as long as you can guarantee me $X or 75% of the profits, whichever is larger)
