We schedule a 45-minute phone call–a FaceTime or Skype session is even better–during which we learn everything we need to know about your relationship with and feelings about the subject of your speech. First we prompt you to identify what makes the individual, group or organization about which you’re speaking unique. We push you to describe some of the most important interactions you’ve shared with him, her or them and articulate what makes this occasion so very special to you and to them.
We prepare a draft for you to review and come back to us with any suggested edits. If we’ve given too much weight to a particular element or not enough to another, we’re happy to make whatever revisions you feel are necessary.
