Speech writer for hire

That's me - at your service

Why get me to write for you?

Stop worrying now sign

Maybe because:

  • You have run out of time to prepare your speech properly
  • The right words keep slip, sliding away
  • You're unsure where to begin
  • You're worried about meeting expectations
  • You don't know what to put in and what to leave out
  • You want your speech to be success


If any of those reasons fit your situation, please don't feel anxious, just read on.

Browse the speech samples, read the testimonials (page right), check the process, the price and fill out the form.


Get the right words to fit the occasion

What sort of speech do you need?

I can help you with a eulogy or funeral speech, a birthday, farewell, wedding, engagement, tribute or retirement speech, an acceptance, thank you, introduction or welcome speech.

(The links will take you to examples and there are more highlighted below.)

Allow me to take your worry away.

If you've begun your speech, I can review what you've done and finish it.

Or I can begin at the beginning and craft you a custom speech.

The process

Preparing the best speech for you is a two-way process.

After you have filled in the form below I will contact you to confirm the details you have submitted. I will also request a meeting via Skype, or phone*, to ask additional questions about the event, the audience, the tone of the speech, and the key messages you want to leave the audience with.

Be ready to supply the names of important guests, stories, sayings - scraps of information to help build a full picture. The more you can give me, the more likely I am to write exactly what you want.

*NB. If you choose to chat through your speech requirements on a phone those charges will be passed on. Unfortunately, unlike Skype, telephone services are not free.

The costs

A 3 - 5 minute social, family and/or friends speech (ie. wedding, engagement, farewell, birthday, retirement, eulogy, introduction ...) is charged at a flat rate of $275 US.

That includes a first and second draft, the final text, plus research and an initial consultation via Skype.

If we've met via telephone those charges will be added to the final price of your speech: $275 US plus the phone charges.

The price for a longer speech needs to be discussed.

The rate for a work-place focused speech addressing either current, or potential, colleagues or customers  is $80 US per minute.

How do I pay you?

You pay through Pay Pal, using your credit card if you do not have an account.

When do I pay?

Payment is due once I have received all the details about your speech and have agreed to write it.

Extras - delivery help

If you require help with your speech delivery I can either skype you or prepare an audio file. That's me reading your speech to give you a sense of how to say it for maximum effectiveness.

  • A 45 minute skype session = $75 US
  • An audio file = $75 US

What happens if I don't like what you've done?

If I don't think I can write what you want I'll let you know at the outset and suggest you look elsewhere for a speech writer. That minimizes the possibilities of disappointment. I know my work is not for everybody.

However, if we've begun the process, I'll happily revise in the time available until you feel entirely comfortable with your speech. Please note though,  revision is different from requesting a change of direction and the addition of new material. If you've carefully filled out my form, and met with me to talk your speech over, misunderstandings are unlikely to arise.


Shall we begin?

If you've reviewed the process, the potential costs, read a couple of sample speeches and want to proceed, please fill in the form below.

I'll get back to you within 48 hours to let you know whether I can meet your deadline and write the type of speech you are requesting.

To make sure you get my response, please double, double check the email address you enter.

*Please note - Your privacy is assured. I will not share either your personal information or the speech I write for you with anyone.


NB. Please don't ask me to write a speech

  • for a school based project, a competition or
  • one intended to inflict pain or incite ill-feeling.

I will refuse. I won't write speeches to be given as part of any program for assessment where the speaker is expected to have prepared the speech they deliver and neither will I write to deliberately hurt. 



Testimonials


"Thank you so much. It is brilliant. As you say I need to add and delete words and sentences here and there to make it sound more like me, more personal. But you have certainly given me the foundation to work from. I can not thank you enough Susan."
L.- UK
- eulogy


"Dear Susan,
Thank you once again for the new version and thank you for your advice which is highly appreciated. I frequently speak in public but seldom get any suggestions or comments, so all of that is great. I will do as you suggest and of course will let you know how it worked out.
Finally - you have been a great support and have also spent a lot of time - please send me your invoice!"
H. - CEO - Austria - after dinner speech celebrating a milestone anniversary of an international company

Thank you for being there for me. I wish I had your gift of making my memories make sense in writing."
S. - USA - eulogy


"Susan, a tear dropped out of my eye when I read this speech. Not because, I felt emotional, but because I would not have come out with something like this.
Thank you Susan. I will make sure I send you a copy of everything that will happen here.
You are awesome.
Talk later."
