Speaking opportunities

We are often looking for speakers to take part in panel events, careers development sessions and graduation ceremonies. Make sure you have updated your details so we can contact you about these opportunities.

Below is a recorded message from writer and Birkbeck alumnus, Nii Ayikwei-Parkes, for the Birkbeck Class of 2021 graduation ceremony. 

Kevin Gordon – Global Buddies volunteer

 “Over the last 3 years or so, I have been involved in Birkbeck’s Global Buddies scheme, where I act as a buddy to one or more of their international students.

“This year, I was pleased to be assigned to Kristoffer, who travelled from the Philippines to do a Master of Laws. When we first met, we did a tour of the Inns of Courts before ending the day in fine English style, with a pint. No better way to introduce him to the English way of life.”

Make the Most of Staying in Touch
