Join the Silicon Valley Speechwriters Roundtable in conversation with Bob Sands. Bob is an ordained minister and "preaching man". David Murray's recent PSA White Paper titled "A Provocation from the Pulpit: Dead Preachers Challenge Living Speechwriters" states that the lessons in a 1971 book on writing sermons "helped me clarify and articulate my ideas on good speechwriting. And to my occasional consternation, what I learned contradicts some of what I’ve taught speechwriters over the years, and what many of us have come to accept as true about our business."

Bob will discuss his insights about crafting sermons and how it intersects with his work as a freelance speechwriter. He'll also share what he's learned from talking with the bereaved and share his advice for speechwriters who must deal with challenging topics based on his first-hand experience of difficult conversations.
