Today Saxton sits as the first and foremost bureau in Australasia and a major international player. We are very proud of the history, the growth and the range of services that we offer but the fundamental reason for our success is our people - we believe that it's the passion, creativity and personal contact that has made all the difference. We invite you to experience the Saxton Difference.
Saxton business speakers have the ability to communicate their success in way that can make that special difference to your business. A business speaker may specialize in business growth, leadership, marketing, management, strategy, sales or a variety of other business disciplines. A business speaker may be a CEO or Chairman (e.g. Mark Bouris, James Strong, Roger Corbett or Linda Nicholls) or a small business speaker with a fascinating business success story (e.g. Remo Giuffre, Matthew Michalewicz or Creel Price).
When you engage a Saxton business speaker you are often engaging a lifetime of business wisdom. Saxton business speakers are proven business achievers and quality communicators and particularly in the conference speaker or keynote speaker role.

Saxton conference speakers have a wealth of experience taking conferences to the next level; frequently we receive feedback that our conference speakers have motivated, inspired, educated and entertained audiences and corporate teams in a way the organiser never thought possible.
Drawn from a variety of backgrounds and professional careers, Saxton conference speakers are the difference between an ordinary and extraordinary event; one that is soon forgotten and one which lingers in attendees' memories, a source of tremendous benefit longer after the conference is over. They include economist Chris Caton, sales specialist Ian Stephens, motivational speaker Gill Hicks and health and lifestyle authority Dr Michael Carr-Gregg.

Saxton media speakers are the most informed, influential and in-demand presenters on national and global media in the country. They are writers, journalists, editors, publishers, broadcasters, reporters and television presenters, and represent the entirety of the many and varied forms of communications media in the world today, from advertising, social and Internet-based media to print, broadcast and news.
Every Saxton media speaker is a polished, consummate presenter, bringing immense expertise in his or her field to your conference or event. Whether a business journalist, sports personality, comedy writer or social commentator, to mention but a few, Saxton media presenters are more often than not household names and an assured success with any audience.

A keynote speaker will deliver the keynote address which not only lays down the framework for the program of events but often also sets the underlying tone and core message for the event. A keynote speaker may be a business achiever such as James Strong, an economist such as Craig James, or a politician such as Bob Carr. You might also find that a futurist such as Peter Ellyard, an historian such as Professor Geoffrey Blainey, or someone with a remarkable story to tell like Li Cunxin can deliver an appropriate keynote address for your event.
The keynote speaker may also include the role of event moderator, a natural extension from the keynote speech. Selecting one of Saxton's keynote speakers who is well known for his or her expertise in a particular field, or who has wide name recognition due to other accomplishments, will raise interest and enthusiasm amongst prospective attendees.

Saxton motivational speakers have the ability to uplift an audience through exemplary communication skills. Motivational speakers will usually have earned the right to speak through achievement that may have been derived from business success, success over adversity or perhaps outstanding sporting success.
Saxton motivational speakers transcend all the speaking disciplines, incorporating their skills to make a dramatic difference in business, health, sport, education, the environment and a host of other areas. They include London bombings survivor Gill Hicks, polar explorer Graeme Joy, Shantaram author Gregory David Roberts, World Motorcycle Champion Mick Doohan and philanthropist Sir Bob Geldof. Motivational speakers can make that very special difference to your event.

Featured Speaker: Li Cunxin
Born into Mao's communist China, Li Cunxin was selected to train in Madame Mao's Beijing Dance Academy at age 10. He left home, and dire poverty, the next year to begin a harsh training regime, and his true potential - and astounding determination - was soon recognised and developed.
At 18, Li was offered a soloist contract with the Houston Ballet and, after two years, defected to the West in a dramatic media storm which involved then Vice President George Bush Snr. Li married fellow Houston Ballet dancer Mary McKendry in 1987 and in 1995 the couple moved to Melbourne where Li became a principal dancer with the Australian Ballet, in addition to studying at the Australian Securities Institute in order to become a stockbroker.
After retiring from dancing, Li Cunxin resumed his involvement with the ballet world in 2012 as Artistic Director of the Queensland Ballet.
Li's extraordinary and inspirational autobiography, Mao's Last Dancer, was published in 2003 - currently in its 23rd reprint, it is now sold in over 20 countries. It was awarded the Book of the Year by the Australian Booksellers Association, the Nielson BookScan (2004) and was named in Amazon.com's Break-Out Books list just weeks after its US release. In September 2009, a movie adaptation, directed by Australia's Bruce Beresford (Breaker Morant, Driving Miss Daisy), was released to great critical and audience success. The highest grossing film of that year, it holds the record for the 12th highest grossing Australian film of all time.
An inspirational and motivational speaker, Li Cunxin's story is a beautiful account of his extraordinary journey told with honesty, dignity and pride.
"Your communication is excellent. Thank you."
