    Seems fine to me, though a comma after speeches might make it flow a bit smoother?

    If by composed independently you mean by yourself, you could consider switching "were" with "I" to emphasise this, but again this isn't a grammar problem or anything.

    You are trying too hard to sound like Stephen Fry. The trick is to write in simple sentences and make it more elegant when redrafting. But only add "elegance" where it assists readability.
