Our Kōrero - speaking and engagement programme

Kōrero is our speaking and engagement programme, enabling our people to connect with communities and groups across New Zealand. On this page you can find out how to request a speaker or invite us to be involved in your event, and access all our formal speeches.

Our speaking engagements

Our speaking engagements range from informal presentations at small gatherings to formal keynote speeches.

We are able to discuss our work, connect with our stakeholders and address questions and issues – we want our work to be well understood and to operate openly.

Some of the topics we regularly discuss include:

  • the Reserve Bank Te Putea Mātua 
  • financial stability
  • regulation and supervision and enforcement
  • monetary policy
  • money and cash
  • payments and settlement systems
  • financial markets.

Requesting a speaker

As the Reserve Bank of New Zealand Te Putea Mātua our purpose is to enable economic wellbeing and prosperity for all New Zealanders. Our preference is to speak openly about our work to the diverse audience we serve, so inclusive and accessible events will be prioritised.

Requests from groups with a specific interest directly related to our work, for example in financial stability, regulation and supervision and policy, are also encouraged.

For efficiency and to reduce our operational emissions, virtual attendance and participation is favoured. Availability will determine acceptance and allocation of speaker.

Next steps

After we have received completed request forms we consider each request individually and aim to provide a response between 10 and 20 working days. If you can give us as much notice as possible, and as much information as possible, this helps us to process the request – although we cannot undertake every invitation due to the volume of requests we receive.
