Practical, enjoyable, and effective: speech-making workshops and seminars
Leading Lines: The Workshop
(One Day or Half-Day optional)
This workshop is the indispensable guide to speechwriting and the art of modern persuasion. It takes groups of participants from the basics of human psychology and speechwriting, through the drafting process, up to editing, delivery and maximising the use of the speech. It is highly relevant to all speechmakers and to the external and internal communicators who work with them. The workshop can be tailored to meet the needs of individual clients.
Lucinda has been invited to deliver the workshop by a number of blue-chip corporates including leading law firm Corrs Chambers Westgarth; and the Australian Embassy in Beijing. This workshop receives stellar reviews from participants.
Trouble shooting Clinic (3 hours)
This is a follow-up session to Lucinda's one-day speechwriting workshop. Participants bring their work-in-progress, recent efforts, questions and problems to an informal working session.
Right here, Right now (3 hours)
The basic stump speech - delivered time and again - all too often comes across as stale and irrelevant. In this session, Lucinda shows how the stump speech can be renewed for every occasion by using the powerful tools of 'time' and 'place.' She explains how simple techniques can revitalise the organisation's core messages and make the old story new again.
The New Rules of Speechwriting (1 hour)
The age old rules of speechwriting have changed forever. We need new approaches for an era of universal audiences, disrespect for experts, and vulnerable personal brands. Lucinda gives an entertaining and pragmatic guide to speechwriting success in the new era.
The Art of Speechwriting (1 hour)
This talk brings together Lucinda's wealth of speechwriting experience and know-how, condensing it into an entertaining and illuminating guide to the modern art and craft of writing speeches.
