Speechwriter Anthony Trendl
My background is fine literature. Some speechwriters have a journalism or public policy education. I studied poetry and American literature, with graduate work in creative writing and storytelling. Through this, I learned, as one client describes my approach, “to turn a phrase.”
I listen to you, your voice, inflections, as well as what drives your ideas and passions. I learn your dialect and vocabulary.
Good Literature Makes Good Speeches
When a poetic flourish is required on speeches, I get the call. Because of this, I am not an ordinary speech writer. I draw from cultural and literary influences that surprise and delight audiences.
If you need an international perspective, I can help.
Over the years, I have written almost every aspect of communications in both domestic and international settings. My work is known in at least 25 countries. (read more)
I know the required approach and language to promote internal branding, change management buy-in, and esprit de corps. Because of my broad knowledge, clients include me in strategy discussions and planning. Similarly, I am sought by the media when they need an expert communicator for panels and interviews.
A great speech is more than providing the facts. It involves engaging the audience in a way print media can’t accomplish. Read more about the value of hiring a speechwriter.
I have led large scale meetings and communiques. I bring expert knowledge in most required applications (writing, presentation and design).
The exact impact of a speechwriter is hard to identify. My clients have raised tens of millions of dollars while using my work. I believe in the power of words, the power of stories, and the power of oration.
With almost 30 years of influence through writing, my clients have been big and small, known and unknown. Here’s a few for whom my speeches have been noteworthy:
- CEO of nationally-known moving company
- CIO of a global human resources consulting company
- Executive vice president of sales at a leading industrial supply company
- Military leaders at the highest level (generals and admirals)
- Directors at many major corporations
- Vice president leading international growth of a well-known insurance company
- Weddings of fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters across the globe
