I enjoy writing speeches for clients, some of which also write books or are coaches of various types. Speeches are a unique type of writing in so far as they must be usually tailored for a particular demographic and have just the right type of focus for that type of audience. Like all my writing, I try to empathically step into my clients’ frame of mind and sense his or hers manner of thinking, speaking and delivery in front of an audience. There is a lot of interaction in the process and I am quite willing to audition the speech and make suggestions if the clients wants me to.


 Mark Butland – speaker, trainer, professor, author, owner of Butland Communications, Inc., Austin, TX USA said this about my work:  “Johnny Blue Star was remarkable. I had a tough project and little time. He quickly found my voice and a direction that was right on target. He really helped me understand all the help he could provide. Then Johnny listened, and we collaborate like we had been working together for years. If you want professional, timely, colorful writing, He’s your best bet. He added depth, clarity and humor to the speech script I had been struggling with. If you need a strong speech writer, I can recommend Johnny to you.”

 This is what Chris Curran, a National Speaker, said about my work: As a professional speaker, as is common in the industry, I sometimes work with speechwriters to perfect the delivery of my ideas. As I have developed certain skills of over the years, it is very important that the speech be absolutely tailored exactly to my method of delivery. I am very picky about this and I have never been fully satisfied with most of the writers I work with- because of my concern that the final product meets certain standards. My standards. Since I am actually someone who delivers the speech and knows what they want, I have to “try out” the speech and go over it many times. There are two things that I love about Johnny Blue Star’s work. 1) He aims to please better than anyone I have ever worked with. He actually cares about what he’s doing and, most importantly, what I want. 2) He desires to do the job well, does it with enthusiasm, but also wants to turn it around in a short period of time.

 A client from South Africa said about her keynote speech: “Johnny is a consummate professional in every regard. He is open to input and when, revisions are requested he sees the changes through to completion. He is extremely creative and puts effort into further research on the content required for the brief. Johnny is thorough, polished and takes the brief to heart. I am delighted with the outcome and would highly recommend his services!

 “I was wonderfully surprised by the depth of understanding for my subject matter and he took time to make sure he understood what I wanted to accomplish. He made me feel very comfortable in any changes that I may need after the first draft. I was expecting a review of a keynote I felt I had written well; what I got was a compelling call to action, written beautifully. Thanks moviewriter, job done above expectations! It”s difficult to rate a 5 in all categories as I can”t know he”s the best pro in the field when I”ve only used one other before. I like my answers to be honest; if elance deleted that one part of the sentence “best pro in the field” I would have rated him a 5 in that category. As for an expert in the field, that once again is hard to rate 5 – my field is Spiritualism (ghosts, dream interpretation, etc) so no-one is a 5 (including me) when it comes to matters of Spirit. We”re all still learning.” — mayaleela
