It’s no secret that executives must constantly impress various people through communication. Company stakeholders, customers, employees, government officials, and so on look to them to understand the company’s direction and credibility. Leaders must be impactful and at ease when public speaking. The secret to delivering speeches that resonate is rehearsal, preparation (including working with a professional speechwriter, if necessary), understanding what’s most important to your audience, and a commitment to developing your communication skills to reflect the strength of your leadership ability.
Too many leaders struggle to communicate effectively, especially in a virtual world. It’s an understandable challenge. Being time starved, possibly introverted or camera shy, feeling you’re “not a natural,” or a myriad of other reasons can prevent a leader from effectively engaging audiences. But it doesn’t have to be this way. An executive speechwriter and coach can help you craft the right words to ensure a connection with your audience and help you pinpoint what’s getting in your way when it comes to delivering your speech.
Speechwriting is an art and a science. You have to engage your audience’s left and right brain to draw them in and compel them to act or feel a certain way. Flawless speech delivery is a mixture of rehearsal and preparation. You don’t have to rehearse like the star of a Broadway show, but deliberate practice can ensure you give a speech that is more than impactful in the moment—one that others can retell the key points (with ease) to those who may have missed it. How often have you listened to a speech you thought was great, but within a few hours, you had no idea what the details of the talk were?
Phenomenal Speeches exists to help you tell your story in an incredible and engaging way. We understand that many leaders don’t have either the time or the skills to craft a compelling message (just because you’re an excellent IT executive doesn’t automatically make you a great writer, and that’s okay). Your message matters, and the right writing partner can help you craft and deliver a fantastic speech.
