Why register for the European Speechwriter Network Brussels conference?

Residence Palace, Brussels
One of the most productive and enjoyable conferences I've ever attended was the most recent European Speechwriter Network conference in London this May. I came away with a rich array of resources, ideas, challenges and new colleagues and collaborators from this well-organized session. (See my notebook on the London conference here and my London keynote on women and public speaking here.)

This time around, I'll chair the conference, the first time it will take place in Brussels, home of the European government. You can see details on the ever-growing lineup of speakers here. I'm excited about chairing such a talented group of speakers, including:
There's also a full-day workshop that precedes our day of speakers: Martin Shovel and Martha Leyton will lead the popular Nuts and Bolts of Speechwriting workshop. See some testimonials from recent attendees here; space for the workshop is limited. My personal tip: Don't skip the social hours and events. The discussions after the speeches are long and lively.

The entire conference is conducted in English, although many European traditions will be represented. For my American colleagues, this is a conference worth considering, despite the distance. It will give you a world view on speechwriting that you won't forget--and one you will put to use once you return home.

Will you join us? Registration details for the conference are here. Note that the early bird discount ends on July 15--just over two weeks away--and space is limited to just 60 participants.
