"Give me the right word and the right accent and I will move the world."

- Joseph Conrad

Superior Executive Speechwriting​

What famed novelist Joseph Conrad said over a century ago is even more true in the age of the Internet.

Through social media, a good speech—or a bad speech—can be transmitted instantly to an audience that is far more widely dispersed and far more numerous than the audience that is physically present to hear it. That’s why if a speech is worth giving at all, it needs to be the best speech possible.

Here's where I can help. I'm Hal Gordon. I'm a former White House speechwriter.  For more than 30 years, I've made my living writing speeches for some of the most prominent people in America -- from top people in government, corporations 
and nonprofits to General Colin Powell.

What constitutes the bulwark of our liberty and independence?  It is not our frowning battlements, our bristling coasts, our army and our navy.  All of these may be turned against us without making us weaker for the struggle.  Our reliance is in the love of liberty which God has planted in us.  Our defense is in the spirit which prized liberty as the heritage of all men, in all lands, everywhere.”

—Abraham Lincoln
