I swore I’d never write about Donald Trump.
I swore I’d never say anything about Donald Trump. But I can’t help it, and in this Global Speechwriter FM episode, I talk about why.
I discuss why Trump may be connecting with the American public through his speeches and what we can learn from him.
I also touch on why the far right is also using this perversion of “plain language” to “connect” with people. I discuss why this is important.
Then the strange and, admittedly, awkward segue to what I’m really here to talk about: speech request forms.
Wait! Speech request forms? Am I running out of topics?
Absolutely not. Well, not yet.
Instead, I argue that if you want to become a serious speechwriter, you better know your way around a speech request form.
In this episode I discuss what we should include in the form, how we get others to get that information to us, and how to convince them to actually do it.
I always know when I’m dealing with a serious speechwriter…I ask them about their process. If it includes a speech request form, I know I’m in good company. This is one way to separate yourself from the pretenders.
So where can you find an example of a speech request form?
I’ve got it inside the Global Speechwriter Content Library. Sure, it’s a cold, calculated ploy to try and get you to join my merry band of speechwriting fanatics. But the form is actually included in a really great article that I think you’re going to like.
It’s worth joining, I promise.
Just look for “How To Handle A Speech Request” under “How To Articles”. The link to get into the free content library? Just click right here.
In the meantime, get your own form started right now!
