Job Description

This is a project that needs clarity of speech and must have a lively and engaging voice. I would prefer an aristocratic tone to the style.

Book is 207 pages in length.
20 chapters.
word count is approximately 50 000 but this is just an estimate.
Not all pages are full of text, there are some pages that contain only graphics.

Please find a portion of the script below for audition purposes. Full script available in attachment.

We must open our eyes and see what is happening, locally and globally. This
is the main message our experts have for our local leaders and those involved in
local economic development. Given the state of our many economic development
organizations, and the way our local cities are run, we are due some real troubles, not 20 years from now, but as near as 5 years from now, when it comes to keeping competitive on the global basis.

I interviewed over 50 economic developers from around the country, each
identifi ed as the top thought leaders in the field of economic development, both
consultants and practitioners. The news they had was dismal. Although one
never spoke to another prior to these interviews, each message was surprisingly
succinct: as a nation, even ranked as one of the top developed countries in the
world, we are not prepared for globalization. In fact, if we don’t change the way
our leadership leads, we are going to inherit a bleak future.
