Wendy Cherwinski – A seasoned communicator
“[Wendy’s] work provides a strong focus on the delivery of key messages that stick with readers and listeners.”
Doug McCallum, Senior Communications Advisor, Government of Canada
Wendy Cherwinski specializes in communicating through the spoken word. For the past 20 years, she has written speeches and presentations for and provided advice to executives in government, business and the not for profit sector. She also leads workshops and seminars on how to write speeches and presentations and stands on the podium herself as a public speaker.
Wendy draws on a rich communications background as a former journalist and public affairs officer. She has also managed a speechwriting unit in a major federal government department, so she knows the demands and constraints of speech production from both the writer’s and client’s point of view.
She has spoken at international conferences in Washington, Chicago, Ottawa, Bournemouth, England and at MacWorld in San Francisco.
Wendy produces Pen & Podium, available either by subscription as a monthly e-newsletter or online as a blog at www.echeloncomm.ca. Pen & Podium provides valuable tips, resources and insights into writing and communications, with a special focus on speeches and presentations.
Wendy is a past president and current member of the Ottawa chapter of IABC (the International Association of Business Communicators), a professional member of CAPS (the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers) and a member of the Washington Speechwriters Roundtable.
She holds a Bachelor of Journalism degree from Carleton University.
