Apply to be a Speaker

1) Conference Speakers:  To source speakers for our conferences we use our extensive list of contacts and we also issue a Call for Speakers roughly 6 to 7 months before each event. This gives potential speakers the opportunity to submit a title and description of their proposed presentation. Once the Call for Speakers deadline has passed IRM UK and the appropriate conference programme committee will look through all submissions and select the most appropriate papers to be presented as part of the conference. Presentations will last anywhere from half an hour to an hour and a quarter. We also source speakers to present half (3 Hour) and full day (6 Hour) workshops.  We are particularly keen to use speakers who can present case studies about their organisation.

Call for Speakers List: If you would like to be added to our mailing list please e-mail the following details through to and you will receive all our Call for Speakers as soon as they they are published: Contact name, Job Title, Company Name, Telephone Number, E-mail address and Area of Specialisation
