When you need just the right words in under 10 days

Speech writing services for executives, vice presidents, business owners, and keynote speakers.

Why hire a speech writer?

Not everyone has the time to sit down and write a 20 minute speech. You need an expert--you need to hire a speech writer. Maybe you have a big fundraising event or are introducing a major change at your company. You need the right words to get your message across effectively.Other times, you have an existing speech that needs an update from a fresh set of eyes. The speech needs to be more persuasive, needs new ideas, or needs a larger impact. I can help you revise any existing speech to make it resonate with your audience.


My approach:




Wow! From start to finish Eddie was a true professional. The speech he wrote for me was exactly what I needed. The stage directions which accompanied the speech was a great added bonus! I would definitely recommend Eddie to anyone needing speech writing services! A true talent!
Eddie is terrific to work with. He total understood my requirements, was fast and timely in delivering work product. The product was well conceived, error free, highly conceptual and professional. He wrote in my voice. Without a doubt, I will seek his advise and assistance in any future speech that I may deliver.

What speeches and writing services can you provide?

Writing services and speeches include:


What about ongoing writing contracts?


Sure, those are possible too. If you are constantly being asked to write or speak, we can work on a monthly basis with a retainer fee setup.


Who are your past clients?


Great Work! Very creative and dedicated. Worked very hard to deliver the best possible result. We ended up doing much more than initially intended and actually completely revised my speech and brought it to another level.
Bottom line: Eddie always delivers. He transforms basic notes and thoughts into attention grabbing final products. He translates my thoughts in my mind into the words I want to say. A modern muse.



Graduation speech: What I Hope That Commencement Speakers Will Share ...

14-Apr / Speech Writing / 0 COMMENTS

Get more sleep to become a better speaker.   Even after one night of not enough sleep, our thinking slows down, our creativity suffers, and our coordination gets off kilter; it’s everything that a presenter needs for a good talk.   In his book, “The Promise of Sleep,” Dr. William ...


Know Your Company Better with an Internal Communications Audit

Hire an Executive Speech Writer


executive speech writer

My name is Eddie Rice and I've been a speech writer for over 8 years. As an executive speech writer, I've worked with CEOs, college presidents, government officials, and business owners. Let me help you tell your story. Your words can move your company and your people to action; they can make the difference between a lackluster or thriving culture.
