Your Speech

Now, be honest… How are you feeling about your speech?

You’re about to deliver an important speech for one of your closest friends on perhaps the biggest day of his life. He deserves a good send-off.

The internet is, as we both know, awash with Best Man speech advice. Trouble is, too much of it comes in the form of tired jokes, crudity or template scripts to cut-and-paste into a word document.

This website offers you something different.

If you want to deliver a first-class speech, we need to focus on developing your skills as a speaker. The services and resources available here exist to help you succeed in doing precisely that.

So, let’s make a start on developing a speech you can look back on with pride for the rest of your life…

How would it feel to give the speech of your life as Best Man at the wedding?

What if you had an international, award-winning speaker and coach to help with YOUR Best Man Speech?

The simple truth is this…

No Best Man gave a great speech by making the friends laugh and the Bride’s parents cry. Using this book, follow a simple, step-by-step process for crafting a speech to delight the entire wedding audience.

This book draws on my own first-hand experience as…

A Best Man
A Groom
An international award winning speaker and coach
An experienced professional speaker
A coach to 100+ Best Men since 2008

• Prepare your speech, even if you’ve no idea where to begin • Identify and hone compelling stories • Find and unlock the humour • Speak without notes • Manage your nerves and project confidence • Deliver a speech to take pride in for the rest of your life.

I never write reviews. This book demands one. Brilliant. The photographer collared me to say it was the best Best Man’s Speech he’d heard. This success is in small way down to this book. Thank you.

If you want to do a good job for your Groom and deliver an authentic, personal speech you can be proud of, ignore all the rubbish advice online and get this!

Brilliant book. I purchased this having been best man on two previous occasions when the books I used were disappointing. I’m so glad I purchased this book rather than pinching a speech off the web. My speech went down a storm…
