Why do people hire a speech writer?
- They are not good at writing.
- They are not used to speaking.

- They want to sound professional.

Why hire a professional speech writing service? (tap or click to read more reasons)
Speakers hire ghostwriters when they are not good at writing.
The most obvious reason to hire a speechwriter is if you are not good at writing. That is an excellent reason. You have been asked to speak because you are an expert at something. Unless you are speaking at a writers conference, you were probably not chosen for your writing expertise.
You bring the knowledge of the topic. We bring the words you’ll need to communicate. That’s why you hire a writer for your speech. The best speech writer finds your voice.
People like you hire speech ghostwriters when they are not used to speaking.
Even if you are a good writer, you might not be used to public speaking. Writing a speech is not like writing a letter. It’s worth hiring a speechwriter, because he knows how to write a speech.
It’s not just for his expertise that you might want to hire a speech writer. It might also be for your own confidence. Knowing that you have a solid speech to deliver means that you can walk up to the lectern with confidence.
The less familiar or comfortable you are with public speaking, the more important practice will be. Your speechwriter will make sure you get a draft on time, so that you can practice. Many people who write their own speeches procrastinate. That leaves little time for practice. Needless to say, those speeches and presentations tend to be less effective.
Speakers like you hire speechwriters when they don’t know where to start.
You might want to hire a speechwriter because you don’t know where to start. In fact, that’s one reason people hire writers in many situations.
We are used to writing speeches. We know where to start. We can take that burden from your shoulders.
Speakers hire professional speechwriters when they want to sound more professional.
Perhaps the best reason to hire a professional speech writer is to sound more professional or to be more effective. A good speech is made of many things:
- a worthwhile message
- a well-written speech
- a strong delivery
- an interested audience
It starts with a worthwhile message. That’s up to you. Then, you need someone to write a speech that will communicate that message. The rest is up to you, but freelance speech writers can take you that far.

- A sample of our speech writing skills – motivational speech
Speakers hire freelance speechwriters when they are too busy to write it themselves.
You might be busy. In fact, if you have been asked to speak, it’s probably because you do a lot. If you wait for the last minute to draft your speech, it won’t be nearly as good.
Hiring a professional speechwriter is a great way to get your speech written while you do other things. You won’t have to worry about details, such as:
- fretting over words
- structuring the speech
- fitting in enough details
- avoiding too much detail
- worrying about timing or cadence
You will want to tweak the speech as you practice. But the bulk of the work will be done by the time you get the first draft.

How to work with a speech writer
Your speech will be most effective if you work with your speechwriter. Take the time to give the information they need.
What should you tell your speech writer?
- How fast you speak
- Your speaking style
- How you use humor
- What you want to say
- How you want the audience to feel
- What you want the audience to do
Working with a great speech writer (tap or click to read more tips)
Tell your freelance speech writer how fast you speak.
There are two ways to measure the length of a speech. The most obvious is by time. You will be speaking for five minutes or ten minutes or 30 minutes.
Some speeches over 20 minutes get more complicated. A keynote speech is usually straightforward. A 30-minute speech lasts 30 minutes. But a 30-minute conference presentation might last only 20 minutes. That’s because you might need to reserve ten minutes for questions at the end.
The other way to measure the length of a speech is by word count. This might be of no concern to a speaker, but if you want to work with a speech writer, it is pretty important. Your speech writer needs to know how many words to write. That also affects how much we need to charge you.
A 20-minute speech would need just 1,600 words if you speak at 80 words per minute. That same speech would need 3,000 words spoken at 150 words per minute.
How fast do you speak? If you are unaccustomed to public speaking, you probably speak on the fast side. That’s what nerves do to many novice speakers. It’s worth trying to control the pace of your speaking, so that your audience can process what you say.
In the absence of other information, we assume a speaking pace of 100 words per minute.
Tell your professional speech writer about your speaking style.
This is important for a freelance speechwriter to know.
Do you like to explain things in detail?
Do you prefer to make emphatic points?
Do you like to ask questions of the audience and get them to raise their hands or shout out answers?
Do you prefer to speak directly to the audience, or do you prefer to have them stare at a screen of graphs and data?
Do you like to make points by telling stories?
The best speech writer finds your style. What’s your style?
Work with your speech writer on humor.
Humor is a touchy subject. A speech without humor is often very dry. But a speech that sounds like it is supposed to be funny, but isn’t, could prove to be a flop.
How much humor your speechwriter includes, and what type of humor, depends on you. What type of humor do you use in real life? Dry humor? Puns? Longer jokes? It’s best to carry your real-life style of humor into your presentation.
Tell your speech writer how you want the audience to feel.
At the end of the day, how do you want the audience to feel? Your freelance speechwriter can write words that will make the audience feel:
- whatever you want them to feel
Whether tears of joy or just in tears, let your ghostwriter know how you want to leave your audience feeling.
Tell your speech ghostwriter exactly what you want the audience to do.
Whatever your audience feels at the end of the speech, once they leave the room, you are no longer in control. What do you want them to do with the information you gave them?
Maybe nothing. You might not want your audience to do anything after you’ve spoken. You might just have been there to entertain them. Or to present information, with no particular goal.
But if you want the audience to do something to change the world, to change their lives or to change their businesses, make sure to tell them. Be direct. Tell them what you want them to do. At very least, have them leave the room with that call to action as their last thought.
This is an important point you’ll want your speech writer to include.
Ideally, you can follow up your speech with some form of communication once they return to their natural habitats. Back in real life, a reminder of your message will be more effective even than closing your speech with a call to action.

How to perfect your speech
You’ve hired a professional speech writer. You have the speaking notes in front of you. How do you turn the written speech into that barn burner that brings the audience to its feet or moves them to tears?
- Be yourself.
- Come prepared.
- Speak to a mirror.
- Record your voice.
- Look them in the eye.
- Volume speaks volumes.
- Practice, practice, practice.
- Variety is the spice of public speaking.
Public speaking tips (tap or click to read )
Practice your speech.
No matter what you do, you’ll do it better after practicing. The more you practice, the better you’ll do it. That goes double for public speaking.
When you practice, make sure to vary your words slightly. Why? Because if you deliver the same line a dozen times, each time with a slightly different wording, here’s what you will memorize:
- the idea you want to communicate
- all the words you’ll need to express the idea
- not the exact words
The result is that the words will flow more naturally from your mouth. They will sound less memorized. You will be less dependent on staring at the paper in front of you, and more able to look at the people you are talking to.
Speak to a mirror.
Watch how you look when you speak. Make sure your mouth is moving. Keep your posture. Don’t fiddle with your hands. Practice emphatic gestures. We communicate a lot with our bodies, so make sure your body is communicating the same thing as your words.
Record your voice.
After practicing for a while, record your voice. Play it back to see how you sound.
Volume speaks volumes.
Make sure that people can hear you. With a microphone, that’s not an issue. But, will there be a microphone? It’s best to make sure.
Even with a microphone, some people don’t speak loud enough or clearly enough. If your audience has difficulty hearing you or understanding your words, they’ll find it even tougher to understand your message.
Variety is the spice of public speaking.
Loud is good. But not all the time. Sometimes, you need to raise your voice to a crescendo for emphasis. Other times, lowering your voice to almost a whisper will get their attention even better. You should do both.
You should also vary the pace of speaking. There are times for speaking fast. There are times for speaking slow. There are times to pause for emphasis, especially when you want the audience to think about a question you just asked or a new idea you have just suggested.
Make sure there is water at the lectern. You don’t want your speech hijacked by a dry throat.
The other thing you don’t want to happen during your speech is the sudden need to visit the washroom. Empty shortly before the speech.
Look them in the eye.
When you speak with friends or colleagues, do you look over their heads? Of course not. Look people in the eye as you speak. You don’t have to look at any one person for more than a few seconds. Some speakers make eye contact with one person for a whole sentence, then switch to somebody else for the next sentence.
Be yourself…only better.
Most important is to be yourself. Let your personality shine through. Don’t try out humor from the podium that would not be your style in real life. Don’t adopt a speaking style at the lectern that is radically different than how you would explain things in a meeting room or church basement. Speechwriting is about putting you on paper, so that you can shine in person.

Rene – satisfied father-of-the-groom from Quebec
Well I have to thank you again and the speech was fantastic. As you can imagine the flow was great and must admit I did a pretty good job delivering our speech. I had it pretty well memorized so it did enable me to add in little events which made the audience chuckle. Both Kuno and his fiancée were very delighted and touched by the words.
I’m very happy that I decided to go with a “writer” service and very happy that you wrote the words.
Thank you again and should I need writing expertise in the future you can be assured I will be calling upon your services.
