Any request for an OAIC speaker must be made using our online speaker request form (see below) and should provide as much information and notice as possible. Please do not send an invitation directly to the speaker.

All invitations are carefully considered with regard to the relevance of the topic and the audience to the OAIC’s strategic priorities and the availability and capacity of OAIC speakers.

Priority will be given to requests from peak industry organisations. If a speaking invitation is accepted, we may request passes for staff to attend for learning and development purposes.

We are less likely to accept an invitation to speak at a commercial event. If an invitation to speak at a commercial event is accepted, we may seek to recover travel and other costs and may request a speaker’s fee.

We require access to or copies of any recordings or publications featuring an OAIC speaker, with express consent to publish on our own platforms at our discretion.
