Opening her own shop in 1989 was an experiment that’s never ended for Teresa Zumwald, a speechwriter, speech coach, B2B communications consultant and three-time corporate history book author. At Zumwald & Company, LLC, she’s worked one-on-one with brilliant CEOs, entrepreneurs and subject matter experts at more than 80 organizations to tell stories that resonate. In 2009 she added speechwriting to her repertoire, and since 2013, her speeches have won ten international, national and regional awards including five Cicero Speechwriting Awards from Vital Speeches of the Day. She’s also the speechwriter for the chairman of the board of two global manufacturing companies based in Europe.
Teresa earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from The Ohio State University and is a member of the Professional Speechwriters Association, International Association of Business Communicators, American Society of Journalists and Authors, Toastmasters International and WiBN, where she served on the founding advisory board from 2010–2013.
