"I enjoy writing speeches - it's not to everyone's taste - but I enjoy the challenge of finding the words that match the message, the audience, the occasion, and most importantly the style of the person delivering the words.
I write speeches that I would be proud to deliver myself. I craft them so the person delivering the speech is confident that the speech, properly delivered, will work."
