Speeches and presentations

Speeches and presentations portfolio linkStructure, pacing and phrasing are particular to a speaker's personal style.

That’s why good speech-writers must understand what the speaker will be comfortable delivering, as well as becoming instant experts on a company’s strategy, financial position or political stance.

They must also:

  • tailor the message to the audience’s expectations, understanding and attention span
  • have a flair for the turn of phrase, moment of drama or sound bite that will make a speech resonate with its audience – and beyond.

We’re not fazed by sensitive subjects. We’ve helped a finance director explain his part in Britain’s largest-ever corporate bankruptcy, the head of a brandy dynasty announce job cuts in Cognac, and a chief executive declare his intention of building the UK’s first new nuclear power station since the 1980s.

But we’re just as happy helping top executives with more routine duties: explaining strategy to analysts, pumping-up delegates at a management conference, or addressing trade conferences.
