This is what I do ...
It's one thing to give a speech ... but do you have a plan - a real, strategic plan - to follow up that speech and leverage it.
After all, you put a lot of work into fine-tuning the message ... why not expand that into a formal program that can take that one speech and turn it into a campaign?
From finding the right audiences and the right podiums to crafting a complimentary social media and traditional media campaign ... from developing question-and-answer responses to developing and placing an op-ed piece ... this is what I do.
I'm an award-winning speechwriter, author, teacher and executive communications strategist.
I love to teach. It's that simple.
Whether it's one-on-one, a single speaking engagement at a conference, or directing The Speechwriting School for The Professional Speechwriters Association, I get immense pleasure from helping others learn the art of speechwriting and executive communications.
I base most of my teaching on my book, !0 Steps to Writing a Vital Speech, which focuses on getting the fundamentals right before you start on the finer points.
Need a training session? Contact me and let's talk. I love to teach.
"Just say a few words," the conference organizer says.
It's never that easy, is it?
That's why I'm here. To help distill your story - your own personal message - down to a speech they'll always remember.
Commencement speeches. Investor speeches. Ground-breaking ceremonies and employee talks. Business conferences and even Congressional testimony. I've written them all at some point.
I can write the entire speech ... edit a speech draft ... or work with your communications staff to deliver the best product for you.
