Pamela Gilchrist MA, APR, CPT
President & CEO PR-Link

Author & Speaker Pamela Gilchrist builds success by cementing her clients as industry experts through her Expert Influence™ program.

As President and CEO at Strategy-Link/PR-Link, Pam provides breakthrough business strategies and customized branding roadmaps. From Fortune 500 companies to entrepreneurs, clients across the country trust Pam. She has 25-years of success developing and implementing award-winning programs and won a Gold Bulldog Award for the Best Education/Public Service Campaign last year.

Pam's philosophy is that a logo is NOT a brand. With her branding roadmaps, clients learn to clearly articulate who they are and why they've earned the right to be industry leaders and experts. She believes that credibility is critical both online and off.

While branding, social networking, employee motivation and emerging trends are frequently requested presentations; Pam's keynote address, "Tsunami Success™," offers tips on how to "surf the tsunamis in business and life™" and is equally beneficial to corporations, associations, community and church groups.

Her writing has even been featured in the New York Times best selling series Chicken Soup for the Soul — "Life Balance For Women."

Communications Coach and Teacher

Not only is Pam a polished speaker and writer, she is well known for her sound communications strategies and expertise. In her career, she has coached nine CEOs, more than 100 executives and landed publicity for her clients in major publications including the Wall Street Journal. She is founder and president of PR~Link Public Relations, a marketing & communications firm offering consulting services as well as a variety of workshops such as "How To Meet The Press Without Having A Maalox® Moment."

Every week she helps writers craft their stories by teaching Feature Writing For Publication at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. She also is available to present these winning techniques at writers' conferences. Pam holds a master's degree in journalism from Ohio State University, is accredited by the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and is also a certified personality type trainer. In 2002 she became a CLASS Services graduate and in 2003 attended the CLASS Career Coaching Conference and CBA EXPO.

Pam's writing is featured in the #1 New York Times Best Selling Series Chicken Soup for the Soul: "Life Lessons for Women: 7 Essential Ingredients for a Balanced Life." Her contribution, "Ties That Bind," was selected from more than 3,000 stories worldwide by co-authors Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen.
