In a cluttered media landscape, there are few ways to break through the noise like a well-crafted speech.
Audiences crave stories. With the ability to craft and tell the narrative of your work or organization, you can set yourself apart as a thought leader in your field.
I can help! As an experienced executive speechwriter and strategic communications consultant to a range of business leaders and senior Obama administration officials, I help clients to leave a lasting impression with audiences. Drop me a line and let me know how I can help you rock your speaking engagement or bring a fresh perspective to your writing.
I've written for a range of high-profile figures in government and business, ranging from Assistant Secretaries and Ambassadors to senior executives at Fortune 500 Companies. I work efficiently and creatively under tight deadlines to help clients from around the globe maximize their time at the podium.
The best speeches are collaborations. I'll work with you to find time to discuss your vision for your event - who the audience is, your key message, and what goal you hope to accomplish.
I pride myself on my research abilities. The fun part of speechwriting is looking at the world through someone else's eyes - the more information you can provide me, the easier I'm able to capture your voice.
Upon delivery of a first draft (always delivered before deadline), I will continue to work with you to fine-tune your remarks until you are completely satisfied.
