We help people to get (re-)elected and to make a difference
through thoughtful and engaging public speaking.


From Roman times of Cicero and Quintilian, politicians have understood the power of speeches.

Move the Audience: Advance the Agenda

So, how do you make that happen, today?

Here are our usual steps to help you make public speaking an enjoyable opportunity
to move both the audience and the agenda.

1. With you (and your handlers), we fine tune your public persona, your vision for your constituency, your goals, and, the key message you want people to hear every time you communicate. . They form the foundation of all your other messaging and actions.

2. We help you turn your nerves into enthusiasm - and leave you with techniques to do it every time.

3. We immerse you in strategies and skills to engage your listeners' minds and hearts- to entertain them, to make them think, to take them on an emotional roller coaster so they are eager to support you and your platform when you ask them to.

4. We will write you memorable speeches, entertaining 'speechlets' (think "bringing greetings", eg.) and a few 9 second sound bites.

These tools and techniques will equip you to Win Votes and Impact Public Policy

And, you don't need to do it all at once. Check out the options for public speaking strategies and skills or for our speech writing services.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
