Why You Need to Collaborate With Your Speechwriter
A speaker giving a commencement address at a southwestern university called me last night to apologize. Essentially, he said, "I thought I was getting this monkey off my back [the writing of the speech]. As I'm going through your draft, I see that it is a collaboration. It is inspiring ideas and reactions. I'm working hard on a certain part as a result. This is going to be good. That's as it should be."
