"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.

“The Advent mystery focuses the light of faith upon the very meaning of life, of history, of man, of the world and of our own being. In Advent we celebrate the coming and indeed the presence of Christ in our world. We witness to His presence even in the midst of all its inscrutable problems and tragedies. Our Advent faith is not an escape from the world to a misty realm of slogans and comforts which declare our problems to be unreal, our tragedies nonexistent.”
