As a speechwriter I have written for high-profile executives, civic leaders, scientists, and even a member of the Royal Family.
I specialise in storytelling and narrative structure. My academic background, with a PhD in the humanities, brings a judicious use of rhetoric, but my overriding interest is in how complex information can be communicated to its broadest possible audience.
I have served as a speechwriter both in-house and freelance. I always work closely with my client to ensure that every speech balances their voice with the institutional objectives. My speechwriting is always situated within broader communication and PR strategies.
In addition to scripts, I can provide Powerpoint slides and briefing notes, op-eds and articles for publication, and e-mail and marketing copy. I have worked on business speeches and corporate presentations, after-dinner speeches, commemorative and charity events, and much more.
I can provide a full service from research and drafting, to revising and rehearsing, to briefing and on-the-day-assistance; alternatively, I can edit material already drafted.
