Speechwriters need to be aware of double meanings.

I just finished four days teleprompting with an awesome crew, working backstage with some of the most amazing speakers… including CEOs, publishers of major magazines, heads of  major ad agencies, actors, international humanitarians… and this guy named Dick.

Richard is an interesting name for your kid. Because even if he grows up to be a kazillionaire philanthropist and has advised the last ten presidents, this is how they’ll introduce him to the audience: with a straight face, with admiration, and care… while the crew on headsets are doing their best to stifle their Beavis and Butthead giggling.

The lesson? Give any speech to your kid to proofread first.

About Neil Tanner

Neil began teleprompting in 1993. He saw that speakers were much more comfortable with the right teleprompter, operator, and training.
