The best speeches change how people think or behave.

Will yours?

Get speeches, high-stakes presentations, training scripts and video scripts with just the right message: the one you want to deliver – and your audience needs to hear.



Feeling a little anxious and uneasy about your upcoming keynote address?

Perhaps acceptance remarks are in order after you receive that prestigious award – but deep down, are you worried about what to say?

And what about your annual meeting speech that’s right around the corner? Are you uncertain how to inspire your employees? Inform your customers? Persuade your peers?

Here’s the truth:

Too many leaders write speeches without a clear focus or message.

So they ramble. They stumble.

Often, they try to say everything. So in the end? They say nothing.

And when it’s over?

They feel disappointed and frustrated with their performance. And vow to do better the next time.

That time is now.

If you have something important to say, we can help you say it.

The best part?

You can relax.

Because we’ll do the discovery interviews. Handle the research. Talk to some key folks. Build an outline. Get your input. Write a couple of drafts. Listen to your feedback. And then tweak the text.

In the end?

You get a speech you’ll be excited to deliver – with speaker notations tailored to you and how you speak – ready for rehearsal.

Work with us to ensure your next speech is exactly right – and then repurpose all the hours you’ve been spending on speechwriting, rewrites and reviews.

Think about the last time you delivered training.

Maybe you led a webinar.

Or, perhaps you taught a roomful of people in person.

Were you:

  • Exasperated with all the time you spent deciding how to best deliver the content?

  • Propose a training outline
  • Flesh out the training content with activities
  • Write a conversational training script

Work with us the next time you need to engage, educate and entertain your audience while delivering training with new, challenging or complex material.


“I just finished watching the webcast and was extremely impressed. It was everything I was hoping for and so much more. It was like you knew all the questions I had and answered them all. Thank you for such an insightful and invaluable summit.”




If you’ve ever tried to write a video script and felt frustrated because it didn’t sound quite right, you’re in good company.

Lots of people attempting to write a script struggle with this problem – and at least one more.

Word count.

Think about it: If you’re planning a two-minute video, you only have time for a couple hundred words!

That means every word must count.

We can help you write a video script for any kind of video:

  • Educational: Lesson, how-to, animated explainer and webinar videos
  • Promotional: Corporate, testimonial, presentation, product demo and announcement videos
  • Informational: Q&A interview and public service announcement videos

Contact us and let’s talk about how we can help you shape or reshape your ideas into a winning video script.
