With over 200 members, the London Osteopathic Society is the largest
regional organisation in the UK and our meetings regularly attract 60-100
attendees. We’ve more than 10 years of experience in organising successful
lectures and we are keen to attract new speakers on a variety of topics
that will prove of interest to our receptive and friendly membership.
The society has hosted talks from consultants, osteopaths, doctors,
researchers, business and legal professionals and other specialists who
have information to impart and we’re anxious to do everything we can
to encourage and assist potential speakers.
Evenings are held in university lecture theatres, and practical classes at
osteopathic teaching institutions (you can visit our Diary page to find out
which institutions are currently being used).
Registration for participants usually commences at 6.15 pm and lecturing
typically takes place at 7pm for one hour, then a half hour break, followed by
the next one hour session beginning at 8.30 pm. This one hour slot includes
introduction, lecture and Q & A at the end. Format for practical classes may vary.
Light refreshments are provided for participants following registration and in the 8 o’clock break
as many have come straight from clinic. Naturally we hope you can share a bite to eat with us before or after
Our objective is to provide quality content at reasonable cost and we aim to break even on finances. As a token of
our gratitude we pay an honorarium to speakers of £75.
Participation by businesses and those with a product, service or technique to promote is possible but we do insist on
some solid educational content in the session.
Presentations are usually made in Powerpoint format and where possible we are grateful if these can be made available
to us at the end of the evening. They are converted to pdf format and watermarked Authorial copyright.
Distributed by London Osteopathic Society for personal use only. This process ensures that they can be made available
to members only for revision but also to enable maximum concentration during the talk as note taking becomes less
Standard audio visual equipment is supplied as standard, notably projector, screen and PET certificated laptop.
You can let us know your exact requirements nearer the time. After each meeting members are invited to complete
a short confidential survey on the evening.
We’re excited at the prospect of listing you as one of our lecturers and hope that you will get in touch with any
committee member indicated on the contact us page if you have any questions. Alternatively our chairman David Tatton
will be happy to assist you in any way he can.
We look forward to welcoming you to one of our meetings very soon.
