The Right Words Can Motivate!

A Highlight from the upcoming NAGC Communications School.

A truly inspirational speech can motivate people to take action. Great communicators are always searching for just that right combination of words that will make the difference between engaging the audience or putting them to sleep. Whether you are a full-time speechwriter or just tasked with writing the occasional talking points for the boss, you can make a difference in the effectiveness of any presentation.

Internationally acclaimed speechwriting coach Joan Detz will lead an exciting and interactive session at the National Association of Government Communicators 2013 Communications School in April on how to engage citizens with top-notch speeches. Joan will show how a well-crafted speech can position your speaker,
build rapport with audiences, provide measurable outreach, represent your agency, convey your messages, and meet the needs of the citizens you serve.

Those of you who may have participated in one of Joan’s training seminars in the past know that she’s the best in the business. Author of “Can You Say a Few Words?” and “It’s Not What You Say It’s How You Say It,” Joan’s dynamic training classes are frequently sold out. Don’t miss her session on Friday, April 19 at 10:30 a.m.! The 2013 NAGC Communications School will be held April 16-19 at the Pentagon City Sheraton in Arlington, Va.
