Speeches for Special Occasions
We can help to craft unique, bespoke speeches for any sort of occasion, public or private, intimate or large-scale.
- wedding anniversaries
- awards ceremonies
- conference speeches
- going away parties
- retirement celebrations
- any other special occasion
No matter what the occasion, we can help you when you’re called upon to speak in public. We can conduct speech writing consultations in person or via Skype, if you are outside of Adelaide.
At our first meeting, we’ll discuss the significance of the occasion and what the expectations are for your speech. We’ll talk about what it is that you’re celebrating or commemorating, people that you might want to thank, reminiscences that you want to share, and anything else in particular that you would like to talk about. This meeting also gives us an opportunity to get to know about your personality and speaking style, so that we can craft a speak that has the right tone for you.
After our first consultation, we prepare a first draft of your speech and email it to you for your consideration. You then have the opportunity to make suggestions, alterations and omissions, which you can email back to us. From there, we take account of any changes that are necessary, and prepare a final draft of the speech.
Once we have incorporated your changes and suggestions into your speech, we will then email a draft back to you for your final approval.
Second Consultation (optional)
At a second meeting, we rehearse your speech with you, so that you feel confident and secure in your delivery. We will work with you on pace and pausing, and can also help with public speaking techniques such as posture and voice production. Our aim at this meeting is for you to approach your public speaking engagement with assurance and poise, safe in the knowledge that you are as thoroughly prepared as it is possible to be.
