About this Event

You’ve sent the press release, you've booked the room, you’ve invited the audience - the stage is set.

Whether you’re launching a new product, introducing an organisational change, or finessing a screw-up, somebody - you, your boss, your client? - is going to have to step up to the lectern and be seen ... and heard. What will they say? And how will they say it? Will the audience shrivel and cringe, or will the plaudits sound for hours in the ears of the diligent and gratified speechwriter?

From conception to research to the echo of wild applause, taking in a truckload of tricolons, ambling through the annals of anaphora, grinning at Greta Thunberg, gulping at Gordon Brown, and moseying merrily through Monroe’s Motivated Sequence, join Matthew Moss MCIPR, drafter of nearly 400 speeches for Vice-Chancellors and Chancellors of the University of Cambridge, to learn the art and principles of constructing a speech - and how a little knowledge about speechwriting will change everything else you write.

This event would be helpful for anyone who writes or delivers presentations and speeches to external or internal audiences.
