Every year, we look forward to Warren Buffett’s letter to Berkshire Hathaway’s shareholders. We’ve analyzed over 50 shareholder letters from the Oracle of Omaha, dating back to 1965 and, like most analysts, we look forward to Buffett’s predictions for the U.S. Economy in each one. In the wake of the turmoil surrounding and following the presidential election, we were eager to find out what his language in the 2016 letter would give away about his vision for the future.

What are vocal analytics?
A large part of our communication analytics offering is related to making sure your content is best-in-class. However, there’s another component to our work, and that’s making sure your spoken delivery does that content justice. Our vocal analytics offer a data-driven measurement of your vocal techniques (volume, pitch, variation, etc.) as well as your nonverbal techniques (posture, presence, poise, etc.). This allows you to objectively identify your strengths and areas of opportunity, and create a custom improvement plan based on your own abilities.

Often, when writers talk about content optimization, they’re talking about stuffing web pages with keywords designed to boost SEO scores. At Quantified Communications, we use the term a little differently—more in the way an editor might discuss a manuscript. For us, content optimization refers to refining your communications—earnings calls, executive keynotes, website content—to ensure your message is specifically tailored to your core audience.
