"Judy Abelman brings vast experience and creativity to every communications challenge. Judy's experience ranges from setting communications strategy to planning and executing large customer events and complex tradeshows.

WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY
"Judy is simply the most dedicated colleague I have ever had the pleasure of working with. The word NO is not in her vocabulary because she believes in what she does and will work hard until she accomplishes whatever it is she sets out to do. She is a visionary and a tireless professional who was instrumental in defining, articulating and executing high-profile initiatives in branding, campaign management, internal communication, public relations, digital marketing and sales and sales tool development. She spearheaded a corporate website initiative that is considered best in the industry and envied by the competition. In addition, Judy is an outstanding communicator who pays very close attention to the important nuances of language and public presentations. "

"I have known and worked with Judy Abelman for more than two decades. She is an amazing communi-cations professional who brings a hard-working, detail-oriented, passionate approach to all that she does. When we worked together in the medical imaging field, I could always count on Judy to deliver above and beyond expectations. She is one of the few professionals I have met in my career that is truly gifted in all aspects of marketing and communications. More importantly, Judy brings a creative spark to all that she does, which sets her apart from the pack and makes her a joy to work with."
"Help! We just lost a keynote speaker for a major sales meeting which takes place in two weeks!" With that request, we sprung into action, interviewed, selected and prepped a speaker for a critical transformative meeting of the Waddington Group. All to great accolades.
Knowing that he could count on Abelman Communications for quick turnaround and high quality writing, WNA President John Wurzburger reached out again looking for a script doctor for his professional Bio. Two days later - done!
When Avery Dennison hosted an important
meeting for their top customers they reached out to Abelman Communications to handle all hotel logistics, content creation, agenda development, on and offsite activities and communications.

" Judy brought a wealth of experience to our event, cared deeply about out customers and worked tirelessly to be flexible to our changing needs and ensure a world class experience."
Ongoing, 2017 -2018
Many Chambers and service organizations find themselves needing an extra set of hands with a broad marketing skill set. That is certainly the case for the Warrensville Heights Chamber of Commerce. To date we've collaborated on creation of a sponsor package and shooting, editing and project management of a "good news" video featuring tri-city mayors. Next on the docket? Speaker selection, regional marketing and website content for 2018 meetings and A.M. learning series.
Communications had produced the Female Entrepreneur Summit for the past 5 years. But when they needed expert marketing, social media and event logistics support to take the event to the next level, they turned to Abelman Communications.
President Renee DeLuca Dolan describes Judy Abelman as "... hands down the most professional, dedicated and driven event lead we had ever worked with for FES. She went above and beyond from every angle and never gave up."
Tarsus, an international b2b media group, needed project management and event support for its Labelexpo Europe trade show in Brussels. Abelman Communications managed all facets of a sell-out special feature and handled ideation, and marketing support for a 700-person Gala Awards evening.
According to Jade Grace, Project Director, "The event was a great success and it was due to Judy's eye for detail, brilliant management of assets and under-standing of what makes a successful end product."
It’s neither magic nor rocket science. It’s simply that “aha” moment when you know you’ve nailed it. And it only happens at the intersection of strong critical thinking, solid business acumen and outstanding project management delivered against a backdrop of succinct and targeted writing skills and a broad knowledge of new technologies. Communications with impact
And then there’s that intangible “you'll know it when you see it” ... creativity. Thinking beyond the obvious, putting pieces together and looking beyond your four walls for inspiration. Communications that sizzle.
This is what has enabled me to be a valued business partner to leadership of large organizations spanning thirty years in the high tech medical and label and packaging industries. For the past sixteen years, I thrived at a $4B division of Avery Dennison, a Fortune 500 company - managing all global communications including executive communications, marketing communications, advertising, public relations, employee and crisis communications. Prior to that I did the same for a high tech medical business. And I honed my chops in the non-profit world and producing for television. Communicating from experience.
And at Abelman Communications, I am particularly passionate about new technologies - and using powerful content to drive lead generation and thought leadership.
