Speech Writing Course Modules

The Speech Writing System

Module 1: Learn how to influence others

In its most simplistic definition, influencing is having an effect on others — and every speech should aim to have some kind of impact on the audience! (It’s why we love speeches so much.)

In this module, you’ll learn the difference between informing and influencing, as well as how to write a speech that makes an impact on the audience.

The Speech Writing System Module 2

Module 2: Planning your speech

Good speeches are strategic. The speaker knows exactly what they want to achieve and how the audience thinks and feels about their topic.

In this module, you’ll learn why you need to articulate your key message, how to understand your audience and what you need to know about the event and venue you’ll be speaking at.

The Speech Writing System Module 3

Module 3: Finding the perfect research

Without research a speech is just statements.

In this module, you’ll learn about seven different types of research that you can use in your speech, including stories and statistics. You’ll also learn where to find different types of research and incorporate research strategically in your speech.

The Speech Writing System Module 4

Module 4: Building Your Argument

Building your argument is the art of speech writing. It’s adding colour to your speech but not too much colour. It’s about choosing the right ingredients but making sure none of them are over-powering. It’s a fine balance. But if you get the colours right, if you get the ingredients right, if you get that balance right…What you will create is a compelling speech that makes a big impact on the audience.

In this module, we’ll look at what information you should include in your speech to nail the art of speech writing.

The Speech Writing System Module 5

Module 5: Structure your speech to take the audience on a journey

We’re often told to think of speeches as having a beginning, middle and end. But what’s powerful is what you choose to do with the beginning, middle and end of your speech.

In this module, you’ll learn how to use the beginning of your speech to set up your argument. How to use the middle of your speech to state your argument. And how to use the end of your speech to outline your vision.

The Speech Writing System Module 6

Module 6: Write an opening that hooks the audience

Your speech needs to hook the audience from the first few words.

In this module, we’ll look at why and how to start your speech with five different techniques, including starting with a story or starting by painting a picture of the industry or environment. 

The Speech Writing System Module 7

Module 7: Write a killer conclusion

The conclusion of your speech is your final impression on the audience. The last opportunity to make an impact.

In this module, we’ll look at five closing techniques for your speech to help the audience imagine a better future and be motivated to make change.

The Speech Writing System Module 8

Module 8: Supercharge your writing style

The biggest of all the modules, this module is dedicated to supercharging your writing style and taking your speeches to that next level.

In this module, you’ll learn why you need to become a better thinker to be a better writer, the importance of creating a writing routine and how to write powerful sentences, as well as eight writing techniques to help you write speeches that make you sound like the inspiring leader that you are.

The Speech Writing System Module 9

Module 9: Strengthen your speech and polish your prose

Editing your speech is about much more than checking for missing words or spelling mistakes. If you want to really take your speech to that next level, you’ll have to review it and rewrite parts of it.

In this module, you’ll learn my 10-step checklist to help you edit your speech, strengthen your narrative and polish your prose.

The Speech Writing System  Module 10

Module 10: Tips to speak with passion and authority

No speech writing course is complete without a few speaking tips. If you want to have an impact on the audience, you’ll have to speak with passion and authority.

In this module, I’ll run you through four Ps of public speaking — presence, personality, pacing and projection — and give you tips to master each of them.

The Speech Writing System is a great course. I learnt a lot from it. With the skills from this course, I feel more confident that I can connect with different audiences and make the changes I want to see in the world.

Why Learn How to Write Speeches from Me?

I wasn’t born a speechwriter. It’s a skill I had to learn. I read just about every book I could get my hands on. Textbooks about speechwriting, memoirs by speechwriters, books about how to become a better writer.

Then I landed my first gig as a speechwriter at the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet — I was part of the team that wrote speeches for the Prime Minister. I was assigned a wonderful mentor and I squeezed every ounce of knowledge out of her. I asked her to tear my writing to shreds. Tell me, I begged her, how I can be a better speechwriter.

Since then, I’ve gone on to write speeches for two Australian Prime Ministers, other Government Ministers, high-profile Government leaders, CEOs and keynote speakers.

So, I know what it feels like to be you. Someone who wants to write speeches that make a big impact on the audience but don’t quite know how or where to start. In this course, I’ll share all my skills and expertise — my speechwriting tips and tricks — and guide you through the speechwriting process. I’ll help you write your speech with confidence and get your message heard.
