Event description
COMMTRACT WORKSHOP INVITATION: Speechwriting 101 Masterclass

About this Event

If you have ever wanted to delve into the craft of speechwriting, Commtract is hosting a two-hour masterclass session with speechwriter, journalist and author Michael Bodey. Currently a departmental speechwriter for NSW ministers and executives, Michael’s career across the media industry has spanned two decades with longstanding connections at all levels of the news, television, film, radio, digital and publishing sectors.

The session will cover the following:

• Principles of great speechwriting with a focus on structure, style and substance with modern, accessible tips and strategies

• The importance of key messaging, the art of persuasion, the benefits of colour and the strength of the active voice with practical tips including words to avoid and why so many modern speeches are predictable

• Anecdotes and examples of both good and bad speeches

• How to improve your writing more broadly, including that daunting first line!

This is suitable for those who are new to speechwriting, or need an overall refresher.

Lunch provided. Chatham House Rules apply.
