I have written for Mayors, Chief Executives, Council Leaders, Councillors, Fathers of Brides, Best Men, Eulogy givers and more.
I worked at Brighton & Hove City Council for over twenty years; ending my career in Local Government as ‘Head of the Civic Office & Assistant Clerk to the Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex’; a rather grandiose job title that belied the hard grind of managing a busy office and overseeing the Civic life of the city
My move into speech writing was purely accidental and necessitated by the demands of work. Officers and Councillors alike turned to me for help and support and soon after friends were asking me for advice and bespoke speeches.
I am an easy person to get on with, non-judgmental and happiest working in collaboration; I want to make sure that your speech; whatever it is, works for you and your audience.
