Helsinki Speechwriters' & Business Communicators' Conference | House of the Estates | torstai, 11. lokakuu 2018

17th European Speechwriter Network ConferenceOur conferences are open to people who write speeches in their organisations.
You’ll meet colleagues who **** the same challenges. 
The European Speechwriter Network working with the UK Speechwriters' Guild has pioneered a format where we listen to top speechwriters, leaders and interpreters talk about their work.
We learn what techniques they use, how they craft stories, how they build relationships.
Who should attend?
Previous conferences in the UK, Brussels and Amsterdam have attracted speechwriters from the European Commission, NATO, BMW, IBM, the CBI, Orange, Deloitte, the United Nations, the European Investment Bank, Coca Cola as well as the Dutch, Danish and British civil service.
This conference is for anyone wanting to improve their ability to write and deliver speeches.
While the conference is predominantly in English, the techniques will be transferable to other languages.
It's also for people wishing to improve their company's ability to communicate ideas.

It was a great event and I found the speakers provided an excellent insight into the world of speechwriting - so thank you!
Kate, IBM
We went back to the real nitty-gritty elements of the craft, and going back to basics made me think afresh about different approaches that can be taken. The Conference overall was educational, practical and full of ideas and creative energy. Attending was a brilliant opportunity – go!
Jonathan Kinsella (speechwriter at Dept of Culture, Media and Sport)
Loved the conference. Great speakers and well organized. Learnt lots.
Alistair McIntosh, Chief Executive, Housing Quality Network
Thanks especially for getting Sam Leith and David Day to speak to the group, both were utterly compelling.  And thanks for all the thought and hard work that doubtlessly go into this event every year, I can't think of any other conference that's worth packing a suitcase for.
Maddy, Clifford Chance
It was a hugely enjoyable two days and an honour to speak among such stellar names. Congrats on pulling off such a successful event.
David K
I greatly enjoyed the conference, and very much appreciated being invited.
Edward Mortimer, former speechwriter to Kofi Annan 
Let me thank you wholeheartedly again for having invited me to your brilliantly organized conference in Oxford. I enjoyed it thoroughly and I was impressed by the line-up of speakers, the truly international mix of people, the intellectual level of the contributions (and contributors) and the wonderful venue you had chosen
Willi Vogler, Verband der Redenschreiber deutscher Sprache
Thanks for organising such a brilliant event – I have just been raving about how brilliant the event was to my colleagues and would very much like one of them to attend next year, could you keep me on your mailing list.
