External Speakers

Your guide to inviting external speakers to your society events.

The process below is in place to make sure we can continue to invite a diverse range of speakers onto campus and that we don’t have to refuse platform to anyone.

Step One

Whether you are inviting an external speaker on to campus or off campus, if it is part of your society event you need to fill in the below form at least two weeks before the event.

Step Two

A trained member of LUU staff will determine if the speaker is potentially high-profile or controversial and you will either:

  • Be told you are able to go ahead with the event
  • Invited to a meeting so we can talk through your event and see whether you need any additional support, make sure the event is managed well, and that the risks are assessed. You’ll be asked to fill out another form too which we will send to you before the meeting.
