Hire a Speechwriter
You don't have the time to do it all. You need an expert; you need to hire a speechwriter. 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. Hire a speechwriter to make your speech resonate with your audience.

My approach to speech writing
These are my principles as a speechwriter:
- Your Voice: Your speech should sound like you. Your comfort level with the words increases the confidence of your delivery.
- Storytelling: People tune out speeches that are nothing more than information thrown at them for 60 minutes. Stories help to anchor the facts and information into your audience's memories.
- Stage Directions: The words on the page are not enough. The speeches I write are similar to scripts—you get guidance for timing, pauses, volume, etc.
- Quick Turnaround: The turnaround time is usually 7-10 days for a first draft after we have our initial conversation and upon completion of the audience and speech survey. It is important to deliver drafts early in the process in order to make the feedback and work process more efficient for both of us.
- Get it right: Any speech comes with two rounds of revisions along with the possibility of more. It is more important to me that the job is done right rather than just done to get over with quickly.
- Teamwork: It is my goal to work with you on your speech. I value your input and your ideas; it is my job to amplify them and make them shine.
As a speechwriter, I can write any of the following speeches:
- CEO Remarks
- Keynote speeches
- Best man, maid of honor, father/mother of the bride wedding toasts
- TED and TEDx Talks
- Retirement speeches
- Ceremonial speeches: Commemorations, awards acceptances, and galas
- Government policy speeches
- Political campaign speeches
- Startup business pitches
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. Chances are, you don't have enough time to craft the perfect speech. It's important for any leader to delegate tasks--let me help you. I've won regional and national awards through various public speaking competitions.
My past clients have given speeches to groups as small as 10 people to over a 1,000. The right speech fits the size and needs of its audience.
