Effective speech writers command significant fees in politics, business and non-commercial sectors.  The ability to write persuasive speeches is also increasingly expected of those working in PR and communications.  This course focuses on distilling your message, creating narratives that make your points memorable, speech structure and finding markets for speech writing skills.

Ian McKenzie has been principal speech writer for two cabinet ministers and has written speeches for numerous parliamentarians, FTSE 100 business leaders and voluntary sector influencers. He has regularly delivered courses and has regularly lectured at the Civil Service College.

Afterwards you can network  and have a drink and tapas upstairs at The Chapel cafe bar.
