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

An invitation will be carefully considered based on the alignment of the topic and event to the OAIC’s strategic priorities and priority audiences, 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 will seek to recover travel and other costs and may request a speaker’s fee.
