A Prince Charles Food speech at Georgetown University has scooped a publishing deal. Little did we know that a speech by Prince Charles at the Future of Food conference last year would scoop a publishing deal this year, 2012.
The Prince Charles speech at Georgetown University in May last year was the keynote speech of a conference dedicated to finding answers to the problems of global food production. The Prince is interested because these are problems exacerbated by population growth, fears for peak oil and climate change. His interests.
His audience received this well-written speech very enthusiastically at the time. So it’s no real surprise that a publishing giant has snapped up the rights to publish the Prince’s food speech in a paperback format.
Rodale Books has secured the deal with a plan that involves the speech being printed in a 64-page paperback format selling for $6.99. There’s also a plan to have the Prince Charles food speech available in an e-book format at a later date. We expect that to be equally important.
The prolific author and farmer Wendell Berry will provide a foreword. And then other notables will add further comments to the book. Beyond the Prince’s food speech, a website dedicated to the future of food will also help to promote the cause. So, a very good result for the Prince.
You might not plan to secure a publishing deal with your next conference speech. But you could plan to boost your skills and confidence beforehand with a skills refresher. each half-day session aims to give you the skills and techniques you need to make your speech a success. Please don’t hesitate to call us for more details.
