Examples of other questions have included:

Q: I want to order more than one speech, can you offer me a discount ?

A: Yes. A discount is available for regular speech work or buying more than one speech at the same time.

Q:  I’m not an after-dinner or wedding speaker but I still want help with a speech or gags. Is that something you can do?

A: Yes. I’ve written material for all sorts of people and occasions including: a musician playing in public places and a town crier.

Q: Your speciality is comedy but can you help with a serious speech?

A: Most definitely. I’ve helped with speeches for business men and women and conference speakers. Where appropriate, these speeches can include ice-breakers and light humour.

Q: Have you written wedding speeches for same-sex couples?

A: Yes, I have. My service is for anyone who is getting married and needs to make a speech.

I have managed to turn around a speech with 3 days’ notice so just contact me to check my availability.

  • After the speech is ready, we can chat on the phone.
  • I can also do a version of the speech with “director’s notes” indicating how best to deliver certain lines. There is no additional charge for this advice.
