Speech writing is an invaluable skill for public speaking and communication in general. Most important societal changes are inspired through speeches with unique wording. In everyday life, words are one of the most powerful tools. Words can 'build bridges' and 'burn them'; words can hurt and heal, demoralise and inspire.

This KC Academy "Becoming an Effective Speechwriter" short course combines writing, public speaking, and psychology knowledge.
