Writing a Speech?
Let's Work Together
Live the dream of writing a speech and delivering your presentation with the mastery that you feel called to display.
My name if Brian Bellamy. I am a speech,
debate, and trial skills coach. I mentor speech-makers, students, litigators and others through
the transition from uncertain delivery of their words into confident public
Are you writing the speech that you dreamed of when you engaged in
public speaking, debate, delivering a toast, presenting opening remarks
in a trial?
Public Speaking can be tough - and you may have got
to the point where you wish you could have professional coaching to help
you through the process.
Alternatively, you may feel as if
you're 'almost there,' but need someone to look over what you've done,
suggest improvements, and address your concerns.
The truth is
that every influential or entertaining public speaker got to where they
are by following the guidance, advice, or example of a mentor or coach
who went before them.
Over the past decade, I have had the
privilege and honor of working with many persons responsible for writing a speech including school valedictorians,
award-winning mock trial participants, debaters in multiple
forums, and hundreds of others on the successful preparation and
delivery of speeches and arguments. The most exciting part of my work,
with many of these individuals, has been helping them create skills and build
confidence for profiting in school, career, and life.
I want to
help you with writing a speech and speaking in life consistent with your dreams for engagement,
persuasion, and success. So stop worrying over that speech you've been
asked to make and let's get it prepared! Below are the products and
services that would allow us to work together to elevate your message,
help you with writing a speech, and lift your soft skills to new heights.
