Guest speakers

If you're in a club or society, you might want to invite an external speaker to come and speak to your members - whether that's for educational, campaigning or social purposes.

To inform us of your external speaker, we need 4 weeks notice to allow time to run safety checks and approve the speaker.

Guest Speakers for an Online Event

  • If your external speaker is for an online event, you can inform us via the Online Event Guest Speaker Form here or fill it in below.
  • You do not need to write a risk assessment for online events, however you must follow our online guidance here on how to set up and manage online events safely.


Guest Speakers for an in-person Event

  • If your external speaker is for an in-person event, you can inform us of your external speaker through the room booking form here. 
  • You will need to fill out a risk assessment for in-person events and include your external speaker information on this too. You can use the Risk Assessment form and Hazard mitigation cheat sheet here to help you. 
  • Once your request is submitted, the Opportunities and Reception teams will get in touch to inform you of the outcome.
