You have an innovative idea to share with the world. You were invited to speak to a large group and need a keynote speech that sings. You want your CEO, your candidate, or the face of your cause to become an inspiring thought leader who stands out before crowds and above the fray.

Whatever story you need to tell, SKDK can help you tell it. Because if you can’t tell it, you can’t sell it.

Our experts can take away the anxiety of staring at a blank page, stepping up to a podium or standing before television cameras. Through polished speechwriting, customized public-speaking coaching and on-camera media training, we’ll help you plan and execute a strategy that connects your ideas with the right words, your principals with the right venues, and your message with the right audiences.

SKDK’s strategists and writers have helped some of the highest-profile thinkers shape and share their ideas on some of the biggest stages and best-read pages – from the White House to the World Economic Forum and from corporate conventions to the columns of leading magazines, newspapers and blogs. We know how to make your message stick so you can achieve your goals.


We know what moves an audience to act. Like we’ve done for some of the biggest names in politics and business, we can help you conceptualize, research and write a persuasive speech or op-ed in your unique voice that achieves your strategic objectives.

Public-Speaking Coaching

They call the act of giving a speech “delivering” for a reason: you have to bring it. Whether you’re keynoting a conference, testifying at a hearing or presenting at a public event, we’ll help you bring your ideas from the page to the podium and make sure you’re ready to hit the right notes.

Media Training

How to sit, stand, gesture and pause is as important as what you say – but it takes practice to get it right. From our in-house media-training studio or in your offices, we’ll help you refine your message, prepare for any question that comes your way and stay in control of your interview.
