    1. Show speakers' contact information

This is a dramatic feature and it requires confirmation from eSpeakers before it will become effective. Please let eSpeakers staff know if you'd like to display speakers' contact information.
    2. Always sort the speaker search results alphabetically
      1. By default, the results of any search are ordered by the speaker's eSEO score, which indicates how useful the profile will be to the visitor. If you'd prefer instead to sort results by last name, turn this ON.
    3. Don't show speaker fee ranges
      1. Turn this ON to hide speaker fees on the profile and search results
    4. Do not display an initial list of speaker results before a search has been performed
      1. By default, when a visitor comes to the search page for the first time, a list of speakers is displayed. If prefer not to show any speaker results until the visitor has performed their first search, turn this ON.
Be sure to click SAVE when you're done to make your changes effective.
