Saxton Speakers Bureau partners with Delegate Connect for first hybrid showcase

Saxton Speakers has partnered with event technology startup Delegate Connect to deliver their annual Saxton Live speaker showcase as a virtual and hybrid event series.

The event series kicks off with a virtual event on June 22, featuring a speaker lineup that includes host Danielle Di-Masi, TEDx storyteller and Global Innovation x Trust pioneer Philipp Kristian, resilience expert Dr Lucy Hone and leadership strategist Shadé Zahrai.

“Over the 100’s of events that we have delivered on our platform over the last year, we have found that the most successful events focus on audience engagement. The best way to achieve this is to combine inspiring talks from world class speakers with audience participation in the form of interactive features such as Q&A, polling, breakout rooms and workshops,” said Jordan Walsh, managing director of Delegate Connect.

“Successful events should allow for seamless audience engagement across both virtual or hybrid events and we’re thrilled to be partnering with Saxton Speakers to our world leading event technology platform.”

Anne Jamieson, CEO of Saxton Speakers Bureau said the event series is an opportunity to watch some of the best speakers in the world and see how event technology “can enable incredible experiences for global audiences”.

The event showcase series continues later this year with hybrid events in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane featuring local speakers broadcast to clients all around the world.
