Are you looking for a dynamic, award-winning speaker who can help you tackle specific speechwriting challenges in one-hour workshops?
Hi, I’m Brent Kerrigan, founder of Global Speechwriter.
I’ll come clean with you. I’m not like the other speechwriters you’ve met.
I don’t like to hang out in basements. I hate being alone. And I’m not much of an introvert.
In fact, I love speaking to people.
Recently, I was a finalist at the European Public Speaking Championships in Budapest.
What I love to talk about most is how to write and deliver better speeches.
Why is this important? It’s no secret that many people don’t think very much of most government and business speeches.
They feel they’re boring, unstructured, uninspired.
So what do they do? They tune out.
Does this make any sense at all? In the Information Age?
My one-hour power speech writing workshops are designed to help people who want to improve the effectiveness of their speeches immediately.
Not everybody needs a two-day or online course. Often they have a specific questions they need answered or some quick tips for their writers.
While I’m happy to talk about anything related to speechwriting, here are a few of my more popular discussions.
At the bottom of the page you’ll find more information about how to book me.
What I can promise you is a workshop that is anything but boring. I’ll speak, but so will you. You’ll participate, get a chance to pick my brain and get some quick tips on how to write and deliver better speeches.
Choose A Speech Writing Workshop That Fits Your Needs:
High-Level Speech Transformation
This is a discussion about three vital steps that will make your written speeches more effective almost immediately, and is my most requested keynote. In it I condense my decade of speechwriting experience into an hour-long discussion of how to craft speeches with clear style, crisp structure and compelling storyline. Ideal for those who want to do more than “say a few words”.
Reduce Your Nerves As A High-Level Speaker
Does the thought of giving a speech fill you with fear and loathing? I can help you reduce your nervousness and increase your confidence in a one-hour workshop that focuses on how to prepare mentally and physically for speech delivery. It outlines what you can do one week, one day, one hour, one minute, one second before you begin speaking.
Death To Buzzwords!
Exasperated by the amount of buzzwords (those complex words only your organization understands!) in your speeches? Want to sound more human than robot? My interactive, one-hour Death to Buzzwords seminar explains how to replace jargon with words that make audiences pay attention.
Get Out Of Approvals Hell
In most speechwriting discussions, we discuss things like style, structure and storyline. Those are all important subjects, but the reality for most speechwriters working within large organizations is that getting their speeches approved is a frustrating. maddening, hellish experience (to put it lightly). In this discussion, which was first given as a seminar at Oxford University in England, I discuss unique solutions to some of the more common approval challenges.
A Pastor, Turtle and Canadian Walk Into A Bar…
Humans have been telling stories since we began speaking, and it’s no secret they’re a vital part of any successful speech. In this keynote on how to incorporate and tell effective stories, I stories that work, stories that don’t, and how to understand the difference.
What others have to say about my speeches:
Brent’s style, his content and the way he worked with the audience are commendable. I will take some of his points and present them to my students.
He provided a professional, on-time and practical presentation.
Brent Kerrigan is very credible as a professional and successful speechwriter.
My favourite workshop was Brent Kerrigan’s. There was plenty of worthwhile content presented in a logical manner. Brent Kerrigan works in the business so he knows exactly what he’s talking about. His examples illustrated his points perfectly. Finally, his enthusiasm was apparent throughout.
