How to contact us 

By email

For general enquiries, information about events and ticket queries:  

For queries about payments or invoices:

If you would like to speak at one of our Monday night talks or hold a weekend workshop please email:

Please include a paragraph about the subject of your event, your bio, website, social media links, and any video content that you have. The next step in your application is that your proposal will go to our board for review. We do review all applications, however on average this can take several months which is the time it takes for us to create each programme. I am sure you will understand that due to the high volumes of interest that we receive we cannot reply to every application; therefore we will only get in contact if you are successful and the board would like to invite you to speak at Alternatives. If you do not hear back from us then please know that you can apply again one year after your first application. If you do want to apply for a second time then we would suggest trying a different topic as we can only have one or two speakers on each topic per year.
