Speech Hotline

Helping You Bring Family and Friends Together


Unlike most people, Monday morning is my favorite time of the week.  That’s when I get to hear back from fathers, best men, maids of honor and others who knocked their speeches out of the park over the weekend.

I write speeches, but I’m really in the relationship business. I help you give a surprisingly fun, warm and original speech but my real goal is to make you an event game changer who brings family and friends together.

Here’s how it all started for me. After earning a B.A. in communication studies and an M.A. in journalism on scholarship, I began my career in marketing agencies creating strategy and writing ads, films, speeches, books, websites and other materials for Fortune 500 companies and global nonprofits.

CEOs and other executives at client companies would often ask me to write their speech for a wedding, anniversary, funeral, retirement or other social event in their personal lives.

As I wrote more speeches, something interesting began to happen. I began to feel, for the first time, that I was adding some real value to the world. Put another way, the world doesn’t need another ad campaign for car insurance… the world desperately needs kickass wedding speeches. (And if you’ve been to a wedding you know what I’m talking about.)

I’ve since worked with everyone from casino owners and Hollywood agents to UPS drivers and firefighters and can report that these speeches drive everyone at least a little crazy because they push people out of their comfort zones.

And there is a strong emotional component to weddings where a father is speaking to his only daughter or a maid of honor is honoring her big sister.

Over the last 19 years, I've helped thousands of speakers knock their speeches out of the park at weddings in the Grand Ballroom of The Plaza New York, Sydney Opera House and Karma Beach in Bali.... to banquet halls, country clubs and backyards around the world.

This is the easiest and most enjoyable way to not only nail your speech but make it one of the best experiences of your life.

Book early to ensure availability then relax.
