Over the past two-and-a-half decades I have written speeches for several senior public figures – political and corporate – for a range of formal and informal occasions.  In addition to conference speeches, I have also written many humorous speeches for social occasions, particularly wedding day speeches.

You can put my years of experience and wealth of anecdotes and one-liners to work for you.

I can help you prepare for any public event by crafting a designing a speech, preparing speaking notes, or MS Powerpoint presentation to assist you make a positive impression… and only you and I will know about it. 

I have posted some examples of my work published under my own name below. For very obvious reasons I do not post examples of speeches written for others.

After all, speechwriters are heard through their clients, never seen and rarely acknowledged.

This is a collaborative process – we discuss content style and message and I prepare drafts for your approval. 

I am not here to to put someone else’s words or thoughts in your mouth.


Dear Derek… The speech went very well… I was very pleased with speech and great structure.
