Book a Speaker

To book a speaker for your next event, submit the inquiry form below.

We have a diverse number of speakers available to address your students and/or organisation. However, please note that we typically require at least two week’s notice to allow the speaker adequate time to prepare. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your speaker requirements, call 03 9863 8733 or email speakers.bureau@livingpositivevictoria.org.au.

Speaker fees

The Speakers Bureau is reliant upon the fees charged to provide training and pay for the speakers’ presentations. Unrestricted educational grants are received from HIV pharmaceutical companies to support the speakers’ presentations where schools and NGO’s are unable afford the fee and for the speakers’ professional development. If the fee structure is an impediment to booking a speaker please contact the Positive Speakers Bureau Coordinator to discuss sponsorship of the talk. Our priority is to always provide a speaker and significant sponsorship support facilitates this.
