Say it Right:
How to Write Speeches
and Presentations

Welcome to How to Write Speeches and Presentations, a book written specifically for those who want to improve their writing skills and apply them to writing speeches and presentations. The book is based on writing workshops that I have taught for corporate clients and other writers. This book is for you if you are looking to:
  • become a more efficient and effective writer;
  • organize your thoughts before you write;
  • write for a defined audience and engage that audience;
  • make your points in a clear, concise, focused manner
  • apply your writing skills specifically to speeches and presentations.
How to Write Speeches and Presentations focuses on the writing process to get you thinking about your audience, purpose and desired outcome before you start to write. Then it helps you create an outline and effectively write in a clear, concise, well-structured, focused manner. You will come to understand the importance of following the writing process because, simply put, writing is a process. To improve your writing, you need to understand the process and apply it in a dedicated and disciplined manner.

As Jerry Seinfeld says, "According to most studies, people's number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. That means to the average person, if you have to go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy." If you are confident in your words and writing, you may still have butterflies (or wish you were in a casket) but the overall delivery will become that much easier.

This book will help you overcome the feeling of intimidation and make you a stronger, more confident, writer and speaker. It will help you write in a more focused manner and will help you effectively structure your written communication when writing speeches and presentations.
