Let’s Talk Ideas
Speak with the eloquence of a leader.
Your keynote speeches can amaze your audience.
C-suite and V-level executives across the Fortune 500 world have all sought me to write speeches. Key leaders in nonprofits have called on me to help them inspire and raise funds. From project manager to CEO, my speeches help my clients excel. Retainer arrangements are available. I’m a global speechwriter and love global clients.
Writing a speech is a perfectly-timed argument, guiding or teaching your audience to buy into your brand, method or ideals. Whether you need an elevator speech, or a 30-minute closing address, your audience will be engaged and ready to act. Have your speech written with style and color, and set yourself above your peers.

What We Can Do For You
What can a speech writing service do for you? You are giving the speech. You need a speechwriter. My job is to help bring your best self to the podium. I write with your voice. When you and I talk, I listen to your speech patterns, learn what things matter to you, and gain a sense of your vocabulary, and apply this to your message. Whether you want your audience to laugh, cry, buy things or sell things, I will help you bring them there.
We walk through the best ways to communicate. I ask hard questions, then listen.
Speechwriters write. I convert your goals into a persuasive speech.
I’ll train you and your staff to give one speech, as well as elevator speeches, bus stop talks and more.
Need a speaker? Need a motivational talk, lessons on public communications, or a challenge to donate? I can help.
A Common Question
How Long is a Speech?
Speeches that are measured by the hour will die with the hour.
— Thomas Jefferson
How long is a speech? Let’s be clearer: How long is a good speech? This is one of the first questions a speaker asks me. My glib reply always is, “Your speech should be long enough to get your point across and not one word longer.” It’s true.
How many times have you heard a speaker go on terribly long-winded? He’ll tell self-aggrandizing stories that begin with, “I was telling a client just before…” and end with that client taking his brilliant advice (or failing miserably when he ignores said advice).
