Speech Writing

Writing a good speech is always a challenge. Attention must be given to facts and details. Whom am I writing for? Who is going to listen? What is the message? How do I get it across? In which situation and context will the speech be delivered?
The talent and effort of the speech-writer and the speech-holder will be subject to judgement right on the spot! The audience's (lack of) reaction is always spontaneous, inescapable and irreversible. 

Here are some speeches I have (co-)written: 

Lord Mayor speaking to Denmark's King and Queen to be. 2009 Danish and German
