Join Ian Griffin live from the 2014 Ragan Speechwriters Conference in Washington DC. The call starts at 4:15pm (Pacific) which is 15 minutes after the evening cocktail reception at the Conference ends.
We'll be hosting presenters and participants who will have enjoyed the first day of this annual event and will have first-hand experience of having listened to:
A keynote by Jon Favreau, President Obama's former Director of Speechwriting on storytelling with President Obama in an age of sound bites.
Presentations and workshops by Fletcher Dean, David Murray, Rob Friedman, Michael Long and a host of others.
This is your chance to catch the buzz at the end of the second day of the event and ask questions of the presenters and participants.
(The list of people I'll have on the call will be announced in a week's time. I probably won't get Jon Favereau (or President Obama!) but the more people who pre-register for this FREE event, the more chance I'll have of persuading some high-profile presenters to be on the call.)
Remember, the call is open to anyone who wants to dial in, you don't have to be in Silicon Valley to attend. Pass the word and I'm looking forward to a great discussion on the art and science of speechwriting on Feb 20th.
Stay tuned for specific names of participants. Meanwhile, please pre-register and save the date.
