According to surveys, public speaking is still the No.1 biggest fear in Britain. However, everyday, thousands of people are forced to make speeches, despite it being something they’re not at all comfortable doing. When it goes well, public speaking gives the speaker a tremendous adrenaline rush and sense of achievement, leaving their audience feeling thrilled and entertained. We’ve also seen the results of when it goes badly.
In fact, whenever a group of people watch a stand-up comedian, someone will inevitably point out that the comedian appears ‘completely naked’. However, they’ve got two main things that prevent them from feeling that way - their experience and their material. Experience obviously comes with time, but material can be bought and often is - even by many of the most well-known comedians.
Often, comedians will describe their collection of anecdotes, jokes, one-liners & put-downs as their ‘arsenal of material’. This is because they know that, without this material, they’d be potentially standing on a battlefield, completely naked.
We're not saying that we're going to turn your speech into a rib tickling comedy sketch (unless you want us to), but once we bring together our award winning creative writing team whose credits include Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, Armstrong & Miller, QI, Bremner, Bird & Fortune and The Omid Djalili Show, we guarantee that your speech will be one to remember for all the right reasons.
So whether it's a key note address, creative brain storming on a live advertising campaign, a best man's speech, your son's bar mitzvah, your 25th wedding anniversary or a key pitch or presentation with the aim of winning new business, all we ask is that you provide us with a loose framework and we'll bolster it, strengthen it, re-structure it and where appropriate, inject a few killer gags.
If you're London based and can make your way to Battersea we'll even throw in a face to face pre-briefing to meet with the writers before they go to work on your speech. To find out more contact us
