    dreamstimesmall_17099647-speechwriting-topHave you been asked to:

    • Deliver a keynote address?
    • Craft an important speech?
    • Or accept a prestigious award?

    Whenever you speak in public, the stakes are high.

    Your reputation is on the line.

    You need to come off polished, professional, conversational, inspirational and memorable – every time.

    But all too often, speakers begin without a clear focus. They try to say everything. So in the end, they say nothing.

    Or, they run out of time to prepare. So when the big day comes, they go on tangents. They ramble. They stumble.

    And once those words are spoken? It’s over. No speaker can take them back.

    And then the audience leaves – unmoved, uninspired, unmotivated. (Maybe even a little irritated!)

    But certainly empty. 

    Don’t be that speaker!

    If you want to build your professional capital, there’s nothing like developing and delivering a really great speech.

    But let’s face it: Great speechwriting is hard work!

    It’s both a niche skill and a process that takes time – time that you may not have – to do it as well as you want to. And need to.

    Our passion is tapping into the brainpower of CEOs, VIPs and subject matter experts to uncover your wisdom, your words, your experiences, your stories and your style.

    Our in-depth interviewing technique – used with thousands of sources over three decades – is a process of illumination that leads every time to a personal, vivid, unforgettable speech: one that only you can deliver.

    dreamstimesmall_26630807-speechwriting-bottomOur approach to speechwriting saves you time.

    It includes:

    Initial research (industry, event, audience, topic, client)
    Discovery interviews (one-on-one, with you and often others)
    More research (creative, relevant and fresh for your audience)
    An outline with a clear approach
    A couple of drafts for your review and feedback
    The final speech with speaker notations (ready for you to rehearse before our speech coaching sessions)
    The final speech manuscript, ready for you to deliver and submit for online posting, publication or media attention

    Our approach ensures that the focus of your speech is exactly right – and eliminates rework and review time.

    You’ll get the precise speech you want to deliver – and your audience needs to hear.
