Phil Collins: Speeches that shape the world – and why we need them
23 November 2017
We’ll be hosting a ‘Christmas’ reception at the St Matthew’s Conference centre around the corner from the House of Commons.
Anyone with an interest in speechwriting is welcome to attend.
Our speaker will be Philip Collins. Phil is a columnist for The Times and an Associate Editor of Prospect magazine.
He was Chief Speech Writer to Prime Minister Tony Blair in 10 Downing Street between 2004 and 2007 and has subsequently written keynote speeches for a range of senior politicians, leaders of charities and NGOs and Chief Executive Officers.
Phil is the author of The Art of Speeches and Presentations and pioneered the analysis of major speeches in The Times.
This is a chance to listen to one of the UK’s most prominent speechwriters and an opportunity to catch up with colleagues who you may follow on Twitter or never get around to meeting.
A cash bar will be available.
Phil will talk about the launch of his new book, When They Go Low, We Go High: Speeches that shape the world – and why we need them.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
