Cardiff Speechwriters & Business Communicators Conference 2022

20 - 21 October 2022
Cardiff, Wales

Rhetoric is the art of influence, friendship, and eloquence, of ready wit and irrefutable logic. – Jay Heinrichs

In the context of turbulent political events, the 21st UK Speechwriters’ Guild/European Speechwriter Network Leadership & Communication conference will be held at the Norwegian Church in Cardiff, which is next to the Senned, the Welsh Parliament.

Our conferences are open to people who write speeches in their organisations.

We welcome advanced speechwriters, beginners and those interested in developing skills for the future.

You’ll meet colleagues who face the same challenges.

The European Speechwriter Network, working with the UK Speechwriters’ Guild, has pioneered a format where we listen to top speechwriters, leaders and interpreters talk about their work.
