Clients – 2009

One of the problems developing a speech writing business is that every speech is written in the strictest confidence. And most of my clients, quite understandably, prefer to keep my help a secret.

However, a few clients have given me permission to send their speeches as samples on a one-to-one basis, and I’m happy to do that after our initial meeting (or once you’ve filled in one of my questionaires).

I hope these references from my clients suggest how I might be able to help you.

Every quote has been sent to me in writing.

“Absolutely excellent work – very, very impressed. You actually made me laugh in the office.  It wasn’t what I was looking for, but it’s exactly what I want (if that makes any sense at all). Thanks for coming through with this, I’m incredibly glad I made the call.”
KH, April 2011

“Lawrence, Wow – is all I can say!! The speech was so good – which was well rewarded by the feedback – there were laughter and tears and afterwards I am sure EVERYONE came up to me and congratulated me on the speech.
Thanks so much – couldn’t have done it without you.”
Deborah J, December 2009

“Hi Lawrence, just got back – just a quick note to say a million thanks for all your help – the whole day was flawless and your excellent work was a breeze to deliver (with the right amount of vodka!). It sounds odd – but I would really like to do it all over again – quite a buzz!”
Robin B, December 2009

It went really well. In fact, it couldn’t have gone any better. You did a fantastic job and I’ll definitely be using you again.
Patrick G, Dec 2009

It flowed very well, which is something I put entirely down to you, so many thanks – your intervention made a crucial difference and I felt a million times more confident and comfortable.”

Peter B, Dec 2009

You’ve done everything I wanted and more. You have been extraordinarily helpful and I am beyond grateful. Still worrying about it of course, but at least I now know that I’ve got material in which I am totally confident. Thanks again for all your help at such short notice.”

“Hi Lawrence,
Well…. presentation worked very well! I must have impressed them because i got a call last night and they told me my that I got my dream job. Thank you so much for your support and help, this job means the world to me and i would have struggled big time without your help.”
Johnathan S, Nov 2009

“I’m busy learning it- great stuff. I’m sure it will go down well! Many thanks again for putting it together in such a short time.

Many thanks again”Lawrence, I can describe the work you have done for me in two words. Just Fantastic!”
Mark C, Nov 2009

“Just wanted to write a short note to say thanks so much for helping out with the speeches; both mine and my dad’s went down brilliantly. What could have been a potential black hole of nervousness in an otherwise great day was avoided with your help. In fact, that sounds too negative – my parents have received thank you notes saying that his was the best ‘father of the bride’ speech they’d ever heard.”
BF, Nov 2009

“Just great. Thank you once again for all your help.”
Les B, Nov 2009

Lawrence, It is perfect. It doesn’t need any tweaking at all – it is spot on. Thank you very much indeed.”
Susie H, October 2009

“Lawrence, its awesome, I love it … its fantastic!!! Still smiling having read it ten mins ago!”
Richard B, Oct 2009

“Firstly a big thanks to you. From the the moment I stood up and delivered the first line of the best man speech the audience were like putty in the palm of my hands. From this point onwards my confidence grew & grew – i didn’t want the speech to end and neither did anyone else!
People were pleasantly surprised with the content, detail & how clean the speech was yet still hillariously funny! The audience were kept on the edge of their seats throughout in anticipation – expecting to witness me deliver one of my habitual innapropriate comments but i refrained from doing so!
The speech was meant to last 10 minutes – but due to the fit’s of laughter it went on for a good 20 minutes.”
Lee W, Oct 2009

“Your speech went very well and was a cut above my usual. The jokes were spot on. Thanks!”
Richard M, October 2009

“Hi Lawrence
Well the day came and it was a roaring success; the speech could not have been better and everyone said it was excellent. Many, many thanks”

“It’s great, I love it … it’s amazing!”
Sally S, Sept 2009

“You have somehow hit the nail on the head. You’ve got my sense of humour spot on and I suddenly feel totally relieved about giving the speech. I’m actually looking forward to it – thanks to you!”
Paul H, Sept 2009

I will be in contact next time I need to give a speech and I will definitely recommend your service to others.
Thanks for all your help and advice.”
