Ringing Words: Superior Executive Speechwriting
"Give me the right word and the right accent and I will move the world." -- Joseph Conrad
Joseph Conrad was right. Words can move the world. But where do
you find the right words? One way is to ask an expert.
I'm Hal Gordon. I'm a former White House speechwriter. For nearly 30 years, I've made my living writing speeches for some of the most prominent people in America -- from top corporate and nonprofit executives to General Colin Powell.
Speechwriting is a specialty; if you want a really good speech you need an expert to write it. Speechwriting is also labor intensive. Writing a good speech requires in-depth research at the start and extensive editing and revision at the end. Unfortunately, in an era of lean staffing, fewer executives have personal speechwriters who have the skills and the time it takes to write a top-quality speech.
Here's where I can help. As a freelance speechwriter, I can give your speech my full attention. I can write a speech from scratch, or I can take your rough draft and polish it into a gem.
Or, if you're one of those organizations that would never, ever, under any circumstances use an outside writer, but your top execs are not happy with the speeches they're getting, I can do a half-day seminar for your PR staff on the secrets of good speechwriting. I've taught rhetoric and public speaking at the college level, and I've been a featured speaker at speechwriter conferences on both sides of the Atlantic.
So if you need help finding the right words for any occasion, call me. I can offer you top-flight communications skills at reasonable rates. I've made a career by providing executive speech writing for some of the most successful people in this country, and I can do the same for you.
