The Byte9 solution

The Speakers Corner Website was redesigned, restructured and rebuilt using the Byte9 Professional Content Management System.

Content delivery

Flexible channels were introduced with simple authoring and editing designed for non-technical users. Groups or individuals can book online with multiple selections. The site promotes Speakers Corner as well as the celebrities and Speakers available, which supports the goal of capturing new business driving the on- and offline marketing.


Full integrated user metrics and click-streaming (who is on your site, where they came from, and what they looked at) this allows Speakers Corner to effectively track online marketing return on investment. This information is then used to configure the site to suit the idiosyncrasies of each and every unique client.

Search Engine Optimisation

Speakers Corner site re-structured and ‘tuned’ for search engines. Non-technical HTML metadata management gives administrators have full control of titles, meta-descriptions, meta-keywords and keyword management.

The Result

Speakers Corner’s Byte9 solution has increased company profile and the quantity of bookings have vastly increased. This can be attributed firstly to the ease of adding Speakers to the website and secondly to search engine optimisation. The user metrics reporting and statistics generated from the user tracking function have allowed Speakers Corner to improve their on and offline marketing, gaining a better understanding of their clients and website users.
