How do I order a speech?
How do you charge for speeches?
We charge on a per-word basis. In the content brief, tell us how long your speech should last (in minutes), and an instant quote will appear. (Based on industry standards, we assume 130 words per minute.)
How do you capture my unique voice and speaking style?
As experienced ghostwriters, we are experts at doing just that.
One of the best ways for us to learn your voice, style, and tone is to hear you speak and/or study what you have written. In the content brief, you have the option to link to (or upload) materials. For instance, you might share links to YouTube videos of past speeches or interviews, or share memos or articles you have composed.
You can also do a short voice recording directly in the content brief, speaking extemporaneously about the topic at hand. Your “voice” not only conveys instructions, but gives the writer a sense of how you express yourself.
We learn from feedback. If the first draft falls short, you can request up to two (2) rounds of free revisions and guide us in striking the right style and tone.
Is this service confidential? I don't want anyone to know that someone else wrote my speech.
Absolutely. All Prose ghostwriting services are strictly confidential. We compose speeches for a wide range of executives who trust our complete discretion, as indicated in our Terms and executed to the letter.
How do you know what to write the speech about? Won't it sound generic?
Our writers combine the information you supply with their own research. The more detail you offer in the content brief — such as specific points or anecdotes to incorporate — the better equipped Prose will be to customize your speech. Our experienced professional writers will use their best judgment to expand on what you provide. Some executives choose to tweak the final speech after receiving it, adding personal or confidential details such as names and figures.
What occasions do you write for?
Our specialty is writing speeches for business executives at corporate occasions. Examples include conference keynotes, industry meetings, retirement speeches, award ceremonies, commencements, and TED-style talks.
We occasionally write for more personal occasions, such as weddings and eulogies.
Can you make me… funny?
The best speeches, even those about serious topics, often include a touch of humor.
The content brief allows you to give us a sense of how much humor you consider appropriate. You may prefer to keep the speech “strictly business,” add some light humor, or have people falling off their chairs.
We will also do our best to modulate the amount and nature of humor based on the topic of the speech, the occasion, and the venue — as well as your own personality and style.
I already have a slide deck and/or visuals created. Can I supply them for Prose to use as reference?
Yes, by all means. The content brief provides a special area to provide these visuals.
In writing, we will do our best to indicate which portion of text corresponds to which slide or image.
