Congratulations to We R Gen Z’s very own Kathleen Hessert who received a 2022 CICERO Speechwriting Award for Peyton Manning’s Pro Football Hall of Fame Induction speech.

Presented by Vital Speeches of the Day, the prestigious monthly collection of speeches, the Cicero Speechwriting Awards recognize the work that makes the speeches that help leaders lead – in every sector of business, politics and society.

The Cicero Speechwriting Awards website notes that “since Cicero called rhetoric a ‘great art’ more than 2,000 years ago, the world has seen the Gutenberg Press, radio, television, the internet and social media. These fundamental advances haven’t diminished the transformative social power of a great speech.”
