I've been asked to give a mention to the UK Speechwriters’ Guild conference 2010, and as it is sponsored by Total Politics, how could I refuse? It’s taking place on Friday 17 September in Bournemouth’s £5.5m new conference facility, just a short walk from the station.
There are still some places left.
John Shosky is giving the keynote (he’ll be signing copies of Speaking to Lead, too), plus two leading speechwriter/making bloggers, Charles Crawford and Max Atkinson. We also have Edward Mortimer, former speechwriter to Kofi Annan and Phil Collins, Tony Blair’s former speechwriter, who will be speaking at the Gala Dinner. The day also includes breakout training sessions in small groups.
It’s pan-European and cross-party, aimed at anyone who wants to sharpen their writing skills, and hear stories from the experts. Unlike the Party Political conferences, delegates go to hear the speeches, as well as for the networking and gossip. Training usually costs £700 a day in London, at this conference, you get to hear half-a-dozen experts for just over £200.
