Speaker request guidelines

Due to the large volume of speaker requests we receive we cannot guarantee that the person requested will be available. However, if we see merit in our participation we will do our best to provide a suitable speaker.

When deciding whether to accept an invitation to speak we consider the following:

  • how topical the event is to the Bank of England and its priorities
  • availability of the speaker
  • suitability of the audience
  • organiser
  • number of requested speakers (we normally only offer one speaker per event)
  • location: the location impacts time and cost
  • diversity and inclusivity of the event and speakers

Responding to your request

We aim to get back to you as soon as possible however this may take up to 3 weeks.
