What we do
Rectangle Copy 5
Telling stories
creatively through
Mark Twain once said, “The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.” Smart man. Many agencies make the mistake of delivering bells and whistles without proper thought about the words being delivered.
How we do it
Helping unlock
your story.
Have you ever tried to explain to someone what you do? Or the mission of your business? For many of us, it’s not easy. At GEM, it’s simple. We tell stories. We tell your story.

"We were first time users of GEM Communications for a recent video we commissioned them to produce. Tom, one of their producers, along with the entire GEM Communications team were terrific to work with on our video. We had time constraints as we needed the project completed by an upcoming donor event. They not only met the deadline, they produced a fantastic video capturing the essence of our mission! Folks at our donor event that watched the video were inspired and moved because of the video. We highly recommend GEM Communications for your video needs and we will use them again."

Sheryl Laird - Women's Care Center


"I had the pleasure of working alongside GEM founder, Margie Mandli, as we served on the board of a local Catholic school. Margie brought her years of expertise to drive professional communications, manage change in an ever changing external landscape and continuously refresh the brand to ensure differentiation in the marketplace. Non-profit organizations are known for shoe-string budgets, and so it was a gift for Margie and her team to bring creativity and high quality to both the message and creative deliverables, whether it was a video or full-fledged strategy. She and her team were a joy to work with.”

“Margie and her team have time and time again, without fail, provided the creative support we need for our organization. They look after our needs as if they were their own and the consistent high quality product is testament to that. I love that they just ‘get us.’ The most important thing for me is relationship – Margie is someone I trust immensely – with meeting expectations, deadlines and budget and most of all upholding the integrity of our brand. I could not have found a better partner to bring our story to life.”

Amy I. - Abbott Engineering


“I unequivocally trust GEM with our video work. They are reliable, creative and the final product is always spot-on. In the recent Engineering series, we received glowing feedback from our internal partners, and look forward to how this will help in our overall recruitment efforts.”

Sarah K. - Abbott Engineering


“Margie and her team are an extension of my team. I know I can count on them to produce high quality communications, but more importantly they care about the business like it’s their own. They understand our mission and passionately bring it to life in the communications work.”

Christina M. - Abbott Nutrition


“Over the last 10 years I have had the good fortune to work with Margie in a number of different capacities. She is a consummate communications professional. She brings a unique combination of skills to her work – strategic thinking, project management, operational excellence, and business partnership. She is passionate, focused and a great team player. I would not hesitate to partner with Margie at anytime in the future.”

Mark N. - AbbVie


“Margie was instrumental in producing approximately 10 videos for the archdiocese that were used at the Synod and events leading up to the Synod. Margie also helped to develop and implement a Communications Plan for the Synod. It is a tremendous joy to work with Margie. She is always incredibly conscientious to our needs and wants and is willing to develop the plans, process, and videos with us.”
