    Speechwriting

    Speechwriting

    If you are the speech writer, and that is not unusual in strategic communication jobs, then you will need to learn to put words into someone else's mouth. That means understanding the role and power of speeches, the differences between the written and the spoken word and finding just the right words and tone for the speaker's voice and the objective of the speech. This lecture is about all of that. And there are tips for when you are the speaker too.
