Ruth Pankratz, Thought Leadership Advisory Council

It’s an honor to help diverse clients build their image word by word, creating compelling documents and developing marketing strategies. Throughout my corporate career and as owner of Gabby Communications, my passions have always been marketing and writing.  

While I enjoyed contributing to projects at Hewlett Packard, Konica Minolta, Proven Systems, and Performance Health Solutions, for the last 10 years I’ve been delighted to help professionals and small business owners communicate their brand and value.

By offering resumes, professional letters, LinkedIn profiles, job-search strategies, interview mentoring, operation structures, and marketing plans, I partner with clients to enhance their brand and confidence.

It’s been an honor to deliver presentations to international audiences about resume writing, interviewing strategies, business development, job search processes, marketing, and social media. Other contributions include career articles for Andrew Hudson’s Joblist, co-authoring e-books, resume contributions to publications, and co-ownership of Career Bridge Institute.
