All of the professional videos we create rely on a script that you, or one of our presenters read from an autocue machine in our studio. It’s vital with video scriptwriting that the script reflects not only the presenter’s personality and natural language they use, but that it also perfectly ties in with the supporting imagery and PowerPoint presentation too.
We know that Speech writing isn’t easy; at least writing a good one isn’t - that’s why we offer a scriptwriting service, where we take an existing script and subtly amend it using our experience of what works, what doesn’t work and what works very well. Alternatively we can write you a script from scratch.
Don’t worry if you find writing a speech difficult. Speeches that deliver key messages well to an audience can be a hard-to-learn skill. The good news is that our scriptwriting service is designed to help you as much or as little as you like. We can spend one hour reviewing a script, or a whole day writing a speech from scratch – so we can be as flexible as you need us to be!

If you’re going to try your hand at writing a speech, the below tips will give you some pointers:
· Before you begin writing a speech, think about who your audience is. What do you want them to think, feel and do as a result of seeing your video?
· When writing a speech resist the temptation to include EVERYTHING. Decide what the key messages are that you want to get across to your audience. Limit your list to three or four main points at the most
· It’s always hard to start writing a speech and it’s your big opportunity to grab your audience’s attention. Include in your opening a clear audience benefit; ‘Watch this video because’ or ‘By watching this video you will’
· It’s important to keep speech writing simple. Resist the temptation to use posh or corporate-based language. Be natural and use the same conversational language you’d use if you were talking to a friend
· The vital thing to remember with speech writing is that you need to write for the ear and not for the eye. So avoid punctuation and long sentences!
