The Saxton Website has been relaunched with a new look and feel, and changes to the functionality to help make your experience easier when finding your next Speaker, Entertainer or Trainer for your next event.
We've changed the search on the site to make looking for speakers easier.
Just start off by typing in a name, category or keyword relating to a speaker, clicking search and you'll quickly find what you're looking for.
You can also filter the search in a few ways.
- By using the location drop down, you can filter for all profiles that are located in a particular state or country. This can help when looking for a local speaker in order to cut down on travel and accommodation costs for your event.
- Once on the search results page, you can then jump straight to a speakers profile, or add speakers to your enquiry list
- Popular searches will give you a number search terms that might be a good starting point.
- Advanced Search to filter for only profiles or general content, change ordering, increase the displayed results, and add categories and keywords to the search box to help find what you're after.
New Speaker Profiles
We've now switched to a cleaner profile layout.
- Profiles are shown now all on the one page, with information broken into tabs.
- You can read about the speaker, then see what clients have commented about them over time.
- The topics tab gives you a brief list of items they talk about, and the related categories they appear in.
- For an increaing number of speakers, the Topic tab also now includes some synopsis of their various topics.
- If there's videos for the speaker, you can watch them from the Videos tab.
- The related speakers shown at the bottom of the page can also help you with finding other speakers that might help you fill your event brief.
User Friendly URLs
Know the speaker's name? Just add a hypen and you can type it straight into the address bar!
We've improved our URLs for search engine friendliness, but at the same time that's increased their user friendliness.
- Before: /default.asp?sd8=10454
- Now: /lily-serna
- Category pages and articles on the site also now have clean and easy to remember URLs.
This should make jumping straight to a profile for speakers you know much easier, and makes navigating the site by memory much simpler.

"Excellent. Saxton went out their way to match my audience to a high quality speaker. Communication was frequent, professional and showed patience. A huge range of speakers and a willingness to negotiate realistically within a tight budget. It was a pleasure consulting with both Nancy Tombazos and Chantelle DeBattista. Thank you."
