We Like Mike

1-stayinwash“In his nine years as editor of the Washington State Visitors’ GuideMike enhanced its editorial and photographic content and broadened its content significantly. But that’s just the start of what Mike does for the Washington Lodging Association. In the Association’s business and public relations realms, his writing consistently produces positive results. Campaigns he’s written have increased membership; generated more than $75,000 for our legal defense fund; launched our highly successful Group Retro Program; and fueled more contributors and contributions to our Political Action Committee than ever before. When we need to communicate with WLA members and our various constituencies, we couldn’t do it without him. Mike puts the Association’s voice into print and makes our message sing.”

–Jan Simon Aridj 
Former President and CEO Washington Lodging Association (WLA)

“Mike Greenstein did more than edit my business plan, resume and other important documents; he transformed my written words into an engaging and well composed, intellectual showpiece.

“My letters read so much better, and on one important funding proposal he made the document sing. I couldn’t help but smile as I read it; it was not at all the same document I originally sent. He made it come alive and flow so the reader could follow its essence.”

–Paula Jones
Founder and CEO
Our Beginning Child Care & Early Learning

Mastery of Brine Pickling Cover002“Thanks for the editing focus on my Mastery of Brine Pickling. Your sense of “no-cook and easy” was the real focusing point I needed.

Physicians Insurance Annual Report Cover001“Thank you for all of your work on the annual report. We all appreciate it, and I think the report is great.”

–Susan Peskura

inews“Prior to Mike’s involvement, our iNews was a minor newsletter written primarily by staff and graduate students. We brought in Mike to write articles and help us organize for a redesign. He transformed iNews into the sharp, professional publication that it is today. All who worked with Mike–myself, staff, faculty, and students–always praised his professionalism and thoroughness and the way he helped them organize and convey their information and ideas. We are very fortunate to have Mike’s involvement and expertise.

Summer Times Cover 1998001“When I acquired The New Times it was on the verge of going out of business. After Mike became editor, not only did the quality and consistency of the editorial product turn around, but under his guidance the paper regularly won awards for content, promotion and community service and grew financially as well. His Lifetime Achievement Award from the Syracuse Press Club and Sammys (Syracuse Area Music Awards) Hall of Fame induction are indicative of his recognition as a leader, facilitator and talented writer-editor, both inside and outside our company.”

–Art Zimmer
Publisher Emeritus
Syracuse New Times

Driven to Espresso Cover001“Mike took my manuscript, organized and streamlined it, and made it read so much better than I could ever have done myself. He also gave me some great ideas for contacts and marketing the book. I can’t say enough good things about what he did.

–Ray Weisgerber

“I have hired Mike to assist me on numerous corporate communications-related projects, and I have always been beyond pleased with the results. Mike is a top-notch communicator who always delivers on time and exceeds my expectations.”

–Mikal Belicove
Marketing, Public Relations and Positioning Consultant

“Your editing was excellent. Thank goodness you know where to put commas! The sentences that sounded awkward now flow smoothly into one another. I get what I pay for, and your editing was worth the money.”

–Elaine Cohen, Author, Blue Tress and Her Giant
