For 362.5 days of the year, speechwriting is one of the loneliest jobs in the corporate or political world. For two and a half days a year, everyone understands what you do, everyone appreciates how hard it is and everyone helps you find ways to do it better. While the World Conference of Professional Speechwriters Association is in session, speechwriters rule the world.
This year, those days are Sept. 26-28, at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business.
What are those days like? For speechwriters, it's like they died and went to heaven. See (from a look at last year) for yourself.
And register now, because unlike with the real heaven, there's an early bird discount and seating is limited.
