Public Speaking

Got an event coming up and you need excitement at the podium? Need someone who gets behind your organization with intelligence and zeal? I’m ready.

Anthony Trendl


My specialty is simplicity. I will take your message and bring it into terms the layman understands while including everything he needs to know. That’s what a speechwriter does. With humor, poetic flair, or concrete clarity, your message will be built toward achieving your goals. I can ghost write your messages, letters, or speeches, helping you express yourself in your voice. Any tone, voice or style you need. Your message will sound like you at your best.

I can help. I’ve written about every sort of media — not just speeches. I’ve been commissioned to write commercials (radio and TV), poetry, annual reports, press releases, personal letters, and song lyrics.

I’ve spoken at major companies, universities, and a myriad of dinners. I’ve given talks on communications, strategic conversation, and relation building.

I’ve advised Fortune 500 leaders, college presidents, and celebrities, helping them influence their employees and audiences.

Whether you need someone to guide the conversation, write the conversation, or be the conversation, I’m eager to stand with you. Let’s get this going. Give me a call today.

Editing (Oh! I say!)

Editing. A dirty word. A panicky-word. A dreadful word. An often procrastinated responsibility. Filled with new mistakes. Crammed with insecurity. Sometimes more red than black. A comedy of errors. Riddled with indecisiveness. "Why do I bother?" "What difference will...

National Poetry Month

Don’t Miss the Message

Don't miss the message. Otherwise, you might get bit by a snake. Where I live, it's a real warning, not merely a metaphor. I took the photo of this sign. Several other signs like this were through the park.  Copperheads are the biggest, but not only threat. This isn't...

Writing Through Thinking

WRITING TIP: I often write before I touch a keyboard. When I'm working with a client, I listen. I try to learn their voice and their message. Then I write the speech in my head. Actually, I don't write it. I deliver it to an imaginary audience. I'll speak...

On Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize in Literature. I don't know if he cares... or if he doesn't. We've never chatted. It is what it is. I'm a writer. Things like that catch my eye. What I like about it -- Bob getting the award -- is it caused a new look at his old work...

Language: Cussing, Swearing, and University Pastimes Involving the F-Bomb

Freshman year at Illinois State University... I redefined myself. Wasn't the first time I rebuilt my image, but the previous time, I fell into myself. No control. This time, I was in charge. I was smart, taking literature courses, I read Kerouac, Ginsberg, men of...
