Speech Writer to the President

I think that speech writing is one of those professions where not everyone knows that it exists. So , could you please explain to us, Sarada, what the role of a speech writer is?

Sure, . And I would I’d be interested to hear how it might be different for Tina and Kosovo. But here for us, the role of a speech writer is to really help a speaker find their voice. For example, figure out what they want to say and how they want to say it. And then, you know, the job really have of a speech, as far as I believe, is to persuade the an audience to believe something, to do something. And so, you know, your job is as a speech writer, and in my view, is not to come up with the ideas for a speaker, but to help them holding hone in and clarify their own thinking . and could develop an argument and then find the most persuasive way to deliver that argument.

I happen to agree. For me, it was very important tothrough , sort of, understand the issues that were dealt dear to President Jahjaga, to her vision. Alsoversion, also to weave in personal stories, policy stanceand that’s since , in that sense you want the speech speeches to be impactful and memorable. , and true to the acharacter character of the president and the issues that she and her teams team hold dealdear.

That’s really interesting, this idea of being true to the character of the president or of the person you are writing for. I mean, do you have to know them well to write a good speech?

For me, it was very helpful to be by the president’s side and hear her talk, and hear her interact with various audiences, her counterparts, or just the ordinary people in cost of allKosovo. When I wrote a speech, I almost felt like I had to give up my own voice and adopt her voice and her vocabulary , so that the speech was closest to her vature natural voice. So yes, you need to match your speech with her to their words or their physical chemistry.
