Great Speeches

Contact me today 

Through history, we have certain speeches that lead the pack. They inspire, convince, and persuade. 

Often it is a combination of rights: Right speech, right speaker, right audience, right era, right venue, right public relations, right history. It is a strange soup that needs to mix to arrive at this greatness. Some of which a speechwriter can control, and some of it is beyond his reach. In some cases, the careful wording that comforts a nation in the midst of a tragedy, like when President Bush announced the Twin Towers in New York City were hit, or when Ronald Reagan announced the Challenger explosion, no writer longs for, but we understand the trust and diligence required.

Great Words Matter
President Abraham Lincoln did not expect the Gettysburg Address to ever be remembered. He said within the speech itself, "the world will little note, nor long remember what we say here." How wrong he was! Almost every American is familiar with its first line, "Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."

These listed here are an example of those great, history-making speeches. Learn about college commencement speeches.
