Goldfish have better memories than people.

Make every word count.

20+ years.

Claxon was born out of our founder’s obsession with two things:

  1. The power of words
  2. Making the world a better place

She put those two things together and has been speaking, writing, and advising about the revolutionary power of words ever since.
