About the Author

As one of President Barack Obama's longest-serving speechwriters, Terry Szuplat helped craft hundreds of addresses from 2009 to 2017, inspiring audiences around the world. During President Obama's second term, Szuplat served as Deputy Director of the White House Speechwriting Office, where he helped oversee and edit a team of speechwriters and assisted with State of the Union addresses. Terry is an adjunct professor teaching speechwriting at American University, delivers multimedia keynote presentations and hands-on workshops, and his commentaries have appeared in The New Yorker, the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, Fox News, and Politico. He lives outside Washington, DC, with his wife and two children.


"For eight years, Terry Szuplat collaborated with President Barack Obama on some of the most impactful speeches of our time. In Say it Well, this gifted speechwriter shows you how your words can change your community, your nation, even the world." -- David Axelrod, Former senior strategist for President Barack Obama and New York Times bestselling author of Believer: My Forty Years in Politics

"I've worked with Terry for nearly a decade, and I've seen firsthand how his brilliant advice can help anyone give the speech only they can give. If you're a CEO, executive, or employee who wants to energize your team, differentiate your brand, and win over new customers, read this remarkable book today." -- Marc Benioff, Co-founder, chair, and CEO of Salesforce and New York Times bestselling author of Trailblazer

"In a world where every word matters, Say It Well is a masterclass in how to articulate your vision compellingly and turn your speeches into powerful tools for leadership, persuasion, and impact. This book is destined to become a classic for anyone who wants to perfect the art of public speaking." -- Dorie Clark, Professor of executive education, Columbia Business School and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Long Game

"If you're called upon to give a speech, it's helpful to have a master teacher. Terry Szuplat is one of those masters, and at the Pentagon he helped me make every word count. Say It Well is a profoundly experiential book that will help you find your cadence and help our country reclaim the civility we need today." -- William S. Cohen, Former Republican U.S. Senator from Maine and Former U.S. Secretary of Defense

"I was shocked when my graduation speech went viral and shocked again when Terry included my speech in this book. Say it Well is a true gift--an easy-to-use handbook, written with wisdom and humility, for how we can quiet our self-doubt, find our most authentic voice, and amplify our stories from the page to the stage!" -- Donovan Livingston, Ph.D., University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill Faculty and Author of Lift Off: From the Classroom to the Stars
