The full content of this page is available to members only.
As the tools of transparency become instruments of invented logic, we face a growing crisis of trust and a desperate desire for truth. Speechwriters, who put words into the mouths of the world’s most powerful leaders, have the access, intimacy and insight to make those words speak truth to power.
In this special keynote, you'll learn how to:
Recognize and avoid the pitfalls of prophecy
Communicate to others the value in understanding what they don’t understand
Engage your singular position and perspective to become a change agent
