Public speaking is a great way to raise your profile and status.
But if you don’t prepare properly, it’s a great way to sabotage your profile and status.
Why use a speechwriter?
Because most people don’t have time to prepare properly, or they don’t know what’s required, or they need some humour to lift their message.
