Joan Detz dedicated her bestseller “How to Write and Give a Speech:”

This book is dedicated to the people

who have attended my speechwriting seminars over the years.

They come from diverse work backgrounds –

from corporations and universities,

to the U.S. Congress and our nation’s armed forces.

But they leave with one important thing in common – a

respect for the value, and the power, of the spoken word.

They write speeches that make a difference.

I applaud them.

Theatrical note ~ She autographed both of her books with this rhyme: “All the best, Joan Detz.”
