About Us - The journey to now

 

Richard is the founder of Life is a Speech. Here’s a little bit about his journey to becoming one of the leading Wedding Speech Coaches in the World.

Not finding my voice

In 2014, Life is a Speech started with a wedding, a frustrated corporate individual, and need to deliver a Best Man Speech in front of 200 people!

You know when you go to parties.  And people ask you.  So what do you do for a living? And you can feel yourself thinking "Sigh!” before you’ve even finished the first sentence. 

That was me!  Successful in my field, but not scratching that creative itch!

First Ideas

I reached a point where I wanted to find a way to combine my business sense from years in the corporate world with my creative background!  Something that would really light my passion and I could use those years of skills to make a difference. 

At the time, a lot of friends were getting married. A summer of weddings. I’d gone to a few weddings and I don’t know about you, but one of the things I really enjoy is the wedding speech! And I'd seen some terrible ones! That 'frustration' led me to a solution.

Life is a Speech is born!

So knowing I had a Best Man speech to deliver and realising that people struggled with writing and delivering their own speeches, I had an idea that there was a real need for someone who to help them craft and deliver an amusing, meaningful and memorable message.  And Life is a Speech was born!

After working a few clients, I decided to call time on the corporate life and start making a difference for others.  1300+ clients and 500*+ reviews later, here I am.
