After reading some of Dennis Welch’s work, George Gallup Jr. had this salient advice for him: “Whatever you do, Dennis, be a writer.” During his tenure as VP and Publicity Director at Cave Henricks Communications, Dennis did just that… promoting authors’ work and writing and editing many blogs and guest columns for,, Change This, and others. He worked on several bestsellers and established tremendous relationships both with publishers and the media.

He also served as a Senior Staff Writer at The Gallup Organization. Gallup’s Chief Marketing Officer called him “one of the top 5 writers in the company.” He has written a memoir: Rich People Shop Here. And, he has a forthcoming book about the power of words, titled So… what are you saying?

Dennis is married to Susie and has two sons, Daniel and Dylan.
