Client speech delivered by Barbara Hayde at the University of Dayton wins a prestigious Cicero Speechwriting Award

Today I am excited to announce that one of my speeches has won a top Cicero Speechwriting Award.

“Real Entrepreneurs Don’t Go It Alone” – prepared for and delivered by Barbara Hayde of The Entrepreneurs Center on April 9, 2013, at the University of Dayton – won in the Leadership and Management category.

Cicero called rhetoric a “great art.” The Cicero Speechwriting Awards recognize the speechwriters and the speakers who make it great.

Presented by Vital Speeches of the Day, the prestigious monthly collection of speeches, the Cicero Speechwriting Awards recognize the work that makes the speeches that help leaders lead – in every sector of business, politics and society.

You can view Barbara’s speech, and the complete list of this year’s winners, here. Her speech is on page 30.
