Precision Speech Writing For the Way You Communicate
From ASICS, to Toyota, to Pacific Life, I have penned speeches for C-Suite executives, whether they appear in live talent and videos, as emcees in roasts and recognition events or as leaders delivering serious messages to their audiences. As always, my aim is to craft the words to the speakers' natural delivery style.
Below are a few examples.
Pacific Life - Executive VP
When this executive needed an extra dose of originality to close out an already memorable Awards Night, I decided to make his yearly toast into a poem.
We had no idea that the idea would catch on, but it did, and the toast poem became his signature sign off, a succinct way to wrap up the old year, anticipate the coming year, and inspire the troops.
Here's an example as they celebrated the Division's 20th Anniversary. The Executive VP raised his glass with the others and said,
Twenty years have gone by in the blink of an eye
We can look back with wonder and pride
At the strides we have made and the part we have played
Our legacy can’t be denied
Here’s to our achievements, the great and the small
To our quest for success so sublime
Here’s to the winner inside of us all
And our greatest competitor,
We all race against Time, we arrive just in Time
Some suppose Time is theirs to command
Time is money some say, and yes, Time slips away
Time serves only the ones who have planned
(To an honored exec, retiring)
Here’s to a legend whose hist’ry tonight
We have learned as he played on our stage
He brought Time to a standstill, and fought the good fight
To bring about our Golden Age
What history you make depends only on you
No matter what mountain you climb
Make each moment matter; to our mission be true
And they’ll say of you, “This was your Time.”
