When you need just the right words. I am a freelance speech writer and public speaking coach. My approach to speech writing: -Your speech should sound like you; it should sound natural and not formal and stiff. -Stories should be the basis of your speech--they can evoke the right emotions and make your message stick. -No bullet points should ever appear on a powerpoint slide. A line or two of text combined with a memorable picture is the best way to craft a slide presentation. -Short speeches are the best. When was the last time anyone said, "I wish the speaker had gone on longer?" -If you give a long speech (more than 20 minutes), mix in audience interaction and different methods of presentation such as discussion questions, Q&A, and short videos. My areas of expertise are: 1. Wedding Speeches: Best man, maid of honor, parents of the bride 2. Ceremonial Speeches: Dedications, galas and awards, and commencements 3. Keynote Speeches: Conferences and book tours 4. Corporate Speeches: Seminars, training sessions, and large company addresses.
