Isocrates

Meet Isocrates. Generally accepted as one of the Godfathers of speech writing. He was born in 431 B.C. and died in 404 B.C. Like many of his era he was forced into a way of life by the vicissitudes of war. Specifically the Peloponnesian War, during which he lost his inherited fortune and began to earn money by writing speeches for others to use when defending themselves in court in Athens. From humble beginnings…. 

Though we may not have the brilliance of Isocrates and his fellow Sophists, we’re proud of the heritage of speech writing. Indeed many of the guidelines which make a good speech now are drawn from the rules of rhetoric devised by the Ancient Greeks. 

Today, however the need for speeches is global. 

Speechwriterz was set up to offer world-class speech writing to clients across the globe. We believe in the power of speeches to shape careers and causes, to give organisations the most persuasive means to influence attitudes and share ideas.

We provide outstanding writers and a dedicated service. We ask our clients : “Who do you want to be?”
