Michelle Rafter

I ghostwrite business thought leadership content for CEOs and some of the world’s largest management consulting firms. My strengths include:

• Researching, outlining, and writing thought leadership content that helps busy executives position themselves as insightful subject matter experts

• Project management, including coordinating multiple authors and global teams to bring projects in on time and on budget

• Writing survey-based reports with real-life examples and data viz that make statistics come alive

Since 2021, I’ve ghostwritten two books on people management and the future of HR. I regularly ghostwrite research- and survey-based reports, whitepapers, articles, LinkedIn posts, infographics, slideshows, and video scripts.

I previously collaborated with such brands as AAA, American Express, and Great Place to Work.

Prior to ghostwriting, I worked as a business and technology journalist. My byline has appeared in such as publications as AARP the Magazine, Computerworld, Edmunds.com, Inc.com, Industry Standard, Los Angeles Times, MSN Money, NBCNews.com, OC Register, PBS Next Avenue, PCMag.com, San Diego Union-Tribune, Wall Street Journal, and Writer’s Market.
