What does Occasional Words do exactly?|
Occasional Words sells complete, customizable speeches, written by our team
of professional speechwriters. We have speeches appropriate for nearly every
public speaking situation, from “Father of the Bride” to “Moving from the
Neighborhood” to “Accepting a Promotion.” Every speech we offer can be delivered
with minimum preparation; at the same time, each is designed to allow the
speaker to insert memories, stories, and other personal touches.
How can I “customize” speeches from Occasional Words?
In addition to leaving clearly designated spaces where you can insert key
information like names and dates, every speech has clearly marked sections
for your personal stories. In many cases, we even provide specific suggestions
for the tone, length, and type of personal touch to include. Plus, we give
you two speeches fit for your occasion, not just one -- so you have the flexibility
to choose what works best. You can even incorporate parts you like of one
speech into the other.
