Happy Customers

Working with Heidi and Tom at Speechy was everything I needed. They took all the stress away from trying to create a memorable and well-structured speech. I was nervous leading up to the moment, but while delivering my speech, I didn't want the experience to end, the room was hooked, and laughing at every joke.
Getting up to speak on the big day was something I ended up looking forward to (instead of dreading) and the eventual speech was brilliant and hilarious and lifted the mood of the evening. Highly recommend the service, Stuart in particular was excellent if you want a funny speech.
Incredible service. I was panicking having to put together a speech with lots going on in our private life. Working with the speechy team was effortless, and they drafted a great first edition. With a few tweaks here and there, I delivered a great speech. Everyone was laughing and crying in equal measures. It went down a storm.
On the day I completely had the room...people were engaged from the beginning- laughing, crying and applauding. Some came out of their seat after to shake my hand. Not to be big headed but it was spoken about for days after! From the beginning the team were a pleasure to deal with, and for such an important speech it's worth every penny- everyone will remember that moment!
The speech was spot-on. It hit the mark, and I've had some lovely comments. We had laughter and tears, and overall, a splendid reaction to a rather spiffing delivery of a rather magnificent speech. Thank you so much for the work you did on it and for the top-notch service you provided. From the start, the engagement of Speechy was fantastic, the quality outstanding, and the follow-up exceptional. All in all, it was over and above what I had expected.
It was amazing to work with Gemma. She made herself always available to review the content as many times as needed until I felt it was perfect. She wrote a beautiful speech that was funny but also had some sentimental parts as per my brief. I would go through this process again as it was easy and so fun!
