About Us

A great speech begins with a great story…

Our Story takes us back to 1995, when the internet was used more as a means to hear the magical words – “You’ve Got Mail” – than to buy a product. That didn’t stop Niamh Crowe, a respected writer, from showcasing her professionally-written speeches online. With the help of her daughter, Ciara, Niamh formed Ispeeches.com (now speechwriters.com) and has helped over 150,000 satisfied customers get instant help creating the perfect speech.

Today, this family business has grown to offer the largest selection of speeches anywhere online or in print. Ranked as the most popular speech site on the web by Ranking.com and Alexa.com, you’ll find more than 8,800 products in 8 languages. A continuous investment in top talent and cutting-edge technology ensures every customer enjoys the highest quality product, instant delivery and personal service.

That personal service is the key to the success of the company as clients can be assured of all the support they need in choosing the right speech for any occasion. Customized speeches are written in close collaboration with the client and indeed many of them have such a close relationship with speechwriters.com that they simply ask for “Another speech for my firm’s Christmas function” or another speech for a school re-union!”

Since 1999, the site has gained global recognition and has been featured in many newspapers and TV stations around the world.
