Do You Need a Speechwriter?
We'd love to work on a speech for you. We've written nearly 200 speeches, from keynote addresses that conveyed broad policies and ideas to professional societies and other large audiences, to deeply personal words for official ceremonies and other special events. Our specialty is turning complex technical information into compelling, down-to-earth narratives that capture an audience's attention.
When we work on a speech, our goal is to match the message you want to convey to specific material that's likely to resonate with the audience. We make sure we understand your purpose for the speech: whether you mean to educate the listeners, advocate a position, motivate people to action, or some combination of the three. And we make sure we understand the audience: who they are, where they're from, and what they think you're going to say. Then we put those things together with in-depth research to produce a speech you'll be proud to deliver.
Why We'd Like to Be Your Speechwriter
Of all the nonfiction writing we've done, speechwriting has been the most fun. The topics, events, and audiences are always new, and it's fantastic when we can help a speaker deliver an important or inspiring message in a way that's relevant to their audience. We especially like writing about technical topics, because it's challenging to translate technical issues into clear language that's accessible to wide audiences.
Our Washington Speechwriters Roundtable article, "On Speeches: Pearls and Tapestries," explained a little of our approach to speechwriting.
If you or someone you know needs a speech written for an upcoming event, and you think someone who sees your thoughts as pearls and fine threads to be woven into a rich tapestry of meaning may be a good fit to help you give the best speech you can, contact the GrayMan.
