Join our Speaker Bureau

With chapters throughout Europe and the Middle East, IABC has a vast network of senior communicators from all disciplines of the profession who are keen to meet regularly for networking and professional development.

The EMENA Region board curates a list of speakers who are willing to share their knowledge with our members through in-person events or virtually via webinar. We are looking for subject matter experts and influencers who can engage our members with interactive sessions and case studies that deliver practical learning and insight into today’s communications challenges.

Impromptu is no problem

We have members across Europe, but major centres in our region - where we regularly hold events - include London / Leeds, Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Basel / Geneva, Dublin, Ljubljana, Moscow and Dubai. If you're travelling to any of these centres and would like to speak at or host an event – even at short notice – we'd love to put you in touch with local contacts to help make it happen! Please email [email protected].
