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.

What the 10,000 hour rule gets wrong

25-Sep / Public Speaking Delivery-Speech Writing / 0 COMMENTS

You might have heard of the “10,000 hour rule.” Researchers looked at chess players and others at the top of their game and found that to reach “expert” level in a field, you needed about 10,000 hours of practice. Makes sense. The more you practice at something the better you ...
