Finding the words to pay tribute to someone close to you at a funeral or a memorial is one of the hardest things to do. And hiring a professional speechwriter to help you is one of the most sensible. The Oratory Laboratory understands that beyond raw emotion and a desire to celebrate the deceased, there can be pressure, politics and personal stakes all tied into the occasion.
Through a rigorous and respectful process, we work to uncover the thoughts and ideas a speaker may have and discover inventive ways to bring the best stories about the person to light. Whether it’s a clever metaphorical framework or just in the text itself, we believe that the best way to pay homage to someone is to bring levity in moments that deserve it and provide inspiring takeaways for the audience.
