When planning a significant event, whether it's a corporate conference, a business seminar, or a community gathering, one of the most crucial elements is securing the right speaker. These individuals can make or break an event, setting the tone and leaving a lasting impression on the audience. However, unforeseen challenges can arise, jeopardizing your carefully laid plans. This is where a speaker’s bureau like Saxton Speakers steps in, offering their expertise and resources to ensure the success of your event.
At Saxton Speakers, our mission is to connect event organizers with the perfect speaker for their unique needs. We understand the importance of a well-chosen speaker, and we have witnessed countless positive outcomes that come from our collaboration with event planners. Using a bureau like Saxton Speakers can not only save the day but also consistently deliver exceptional service to their clients.
In November 2022, Saxton was engaged by a council client to secure a speaker for their Women in Business event. After careful consideration of the event's objectives, audience demographic, and budget constraints, we identified the ideal speaker who could inspire and engage the attendees. All arrangements were made, and the event date approached with high anticipation.
However, fate had other plans. On the very day of the event, the scheduled speaker was diagnosed with COVID-19, forcing them to withdraw from the event, and leaving the council client in a state of panic.
Saxton Speakers prides itself on its extensive network and strong relationships with speakers from various fields. This network proved to be invaluable on that fateful day.
In response to this crisis, Saxton Speakers immediately went into action. Within a matter of hours, our sales team reviewed several alternative speakers who could deliver a similar outcome aligned with the event's theme and objectives. Our team reached out to these speakers, checking their availability for an event scheduled to take place in just three hours.
Thanks to our buying power and our enduring relationships with speakers, we were able to seamlessly swap in another qualified speaker who not only met the event's requirements but also brought their unique expertise and charisma to the stage.
The true measure of Saxton Speakers' success is not just in our words but in the testimonials of our satisfied clients. The council client, whose Women in Business event faced a last-minute crisis, had this to say:
"Saxton Speakers came to our rescue for our Women in Business event. When our originally scheduled speaker had to cancel due to a sudden COVID diagnosis on the event day, Saxton sprang into action. They quickly identified suitable replacement speakers, checked their availability for our event which was just three hours away, and seamlessly made the switch. Thanks to Saxton's buying power and strong speaker relationships, we experienced minimal disruption during what could have been a stressful situation. We were thrilled with Saxton's support, highlighting their ability to handle the heavy lifting and allowing us to focus on other event elements. This instance perfectly exemplifies how Saxton became an invaluable part of our event team, ensuring the best outcome for all parties involved. Thanks so much, Saxton!"
