About Us


Shirley S. Savage is a writer and communications strategist. She is fascinated by tech, science, finance, energy, and the way innovative people think. She's curious about the people who create and develop concepts and products. How did the idea come about? The story behind it is always captivating.


With such powerful curiosity, it’s unsurprising that her writing output is varied, too. Her work has appeared in IBM Systems Magazine, Teradata Magazine, IEEE Spectrum, Global Finance, and other publications. She's written newsletters about nanotechnology and advanced manufacturing technologies including 3-D printing for Frost & Sullivan.


For private clients, she produces newsletters for trade associations and municipalities. She also was the public relations representative for the Weather Risk  Management Association and HEDNA, the Hotel Electronic Distribution Network Association.


She has authored several management reports including Power Market Risk: How To Survive (& Prosper) In Crazy Times (Thinking Energy) and Power Market Risk Management: A Survival Guide (Financial Times Energy).


She began her writing career as an energy journalist, writing for several publications owned by The McGraw-Hill Companies.


She also had the pleasure of being a “talking head” many times on CNBC during her energy career.


Even in her spare time, technology is never far away. Shirley is an unabashed opera lover and thrilled to watch opera stage craft becoming more and more technologically driven.


She is a graduate of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
