- Speeches with impact
Speeches with impact
Of all the ways people communicate, none has the emotional power and immediacy of a well-crafted, well-delivered speech.
We understand how to make the most of that. And we understand how to connect with audiences face to face.
For more than 20 years, Rob Cottingham has worked closely with leaders in politics, business, non-profits and labour, helping them craft and deliver high-impact speeches. And he can help make your next presentation your best yet, with:
- a thorough understanding of your communications strategy and goals. Your time – and your audience's attention – are too valuable to waste; he aims to make every moment count.
- an instinctive grasp of the unique demands and strengths of public speaking – and the pacing, dramatic structure and persuasive elements that can make a good speech great.
- a message and text tailored to your audience, and your voice. From small, intimate gatherings to major campaign rallies, Rob can tune the cadence and tone of a speech to suit any audience.
- the right media. Rob knows when slides, charts, props or video can get in the way of a speech – and when they can help it soar.
- a memorable presentation. Leave your audience with vivid images, real-life examples and striking turns of phrase – and a compelling call to action.
Speech coaching: From helping you hone the underlying narrative of your speech, to choosing the right cases and stories, to delivering your presentation with authority, confidence and impact, Rob can guide you through the process of creating a speech that moves crowds and changes minds.
Speechwriting and presentation design: We can deliver as complete a solution as you need, from bullet points to a full speaking text; from a single compelling chart to a full PowerPoint or Keynote deck.
Training for executive communicators: Combining real-world experience with the fundamentals of solid speechwriting, Rob has delivered workshops to writers in corporate PR, government, labour, politics and community groups.
