Does it take you too long to write a speech? Are you frustrated by last-minute rewrites? Individual speechwriting training can help you:

  1. Give your next speech a terrific hook
  2. Analyze the demographics of your audience
  3. Turn boring statistics into real “grabbers”
  4. Organize your material
  5. Write for the ear—not the eye
  6. Make your presentation tell a story
  7. Use rhetorical devices (triads, repetition, parallel structure)
  8. Turn a dull delivery into a dynamic delivery
  9. Avoid the dreaded “word slides”
  10. Get social media attention (Are your speeches Tweet-worthy?)
