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.

New Critique Groups Starting

I've got a new thing beginning that the writers among you might be interested in. It's a writing critique group. Essentially, it's a small group of writers offering guided critiques of each other's writing. You will learn from each other, and along the way, be...

The Raging Giant Blue Goldfish

I have a new book available in print. The Raging Giant Blue Goldfish: 22 Short Stories. As book titles go, that's certainly a mouthful. It's a collection of short stories. Almost two dozen. These are the kinds of stories you might tell on the porch. All of them are...

Vanity Chat-GPT

Have you done a Chat-GPT vanity chat? What’s your take? Is it really you they are talking about? Or, maybe they've not noticed you enough? Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher,vanity of vanities! All is vanity.What does man gain by all the toilat which he toils under...

Morning Reading

I often start the morning reading. In this case, an old familiar favorite. Any writer worth his salt is an active reader. This should be an obvious truth, but whenever I talk to someone who tells me they want to write well, I ask them what they are reading. If they...

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...

Underscore: New Book

Underscore. It's the story of a man wandering through a homeless shelter looking for himself. He's everywhere and nowhere, and unsure what to make of what he sees. He'll tell you, though, with certainty, that he's the real deal. Available for pre-order, with delivery...

National Poetry Month

This is National Poetry Month. Read poetry. Don't give it lip service. Read some. Go ahead. Now. Online. Google poetry. Or any poet you've ever heard about since birth. Or buy some online (this searches poetry on Amazon). Write a poem. Be funny. Be sad. Be sweet. Be...

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...
