Award-winning speechwriter Elaine Bennett says her favorite clients are people who are smart enough to know good writing when they read it, but too busy to do it themselves.

She’s worked with leading executives in a range of industries from financial and professional services to nonprofits and politics. Warren Buffett was impressed with how Elaine captured his voice. He wrote, “You have a terrific ear and you turn straight thinking into straight writing.”

Elaine is so passionate about great writing that she’s launched a coaching business to help more people create it. She blogs daily on her website, bennettink.com, where you’ll see her corporate mission: “Making the world more interesting, one sentence at a time.”
