“Donning a robe doesn’t make me any smarter. But the robe does mean something … It serves as a reminder of what's expected of us--what Burke called the ‘cold neutrality of an impartial judge.’ ... In other places, judges wear scarlet ... here, we’re told to buy our own plain black robes … Ours is a judiciary of honest black polyester.”
— Justice-designate Neil Gorsuch
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 more than 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. 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. For more information about me, click here.
