Courtney & Gabriel Hawk

Gabriel and Courtney Hawk of Soaring Communications


Our expertise in ethical communication, management and leadership allows us to collaborate with clients to create effective and impactful professional strategies and communications.


I’ve studied and researched trends in business and communications for over 20 years. As the world has become increasingly digital, I’ve watched countless organizations struggle to keep up. I want to help organizations that help others buy providing training for their leaders, team members and participants. I believe continual learning is essential to an organization’s success.
Gabe and I want to know the people we collaborate with. We want to build relationships that are greater than the business we do with them. We want to help them reach their goals by creating strategies that engage and impact their audiences.
I have had the pleasure of collaborating with clients on a wide range of projects.
My experience includes:
  • Writing and editing professional and technical documentation, SOWs, white papers, articles, case studies, proposals, grants, training materials, manuals, on-boarding materials and thought leadership pieces.
  • Developing curriculum and content for in person and online and community education.
  • Ethics and leadership training and development.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in Professional and Technical Communication from the University of South Florida.
I am also in the process of completing a Master of Liberal Arts with a focus on ethics and leadership and a Master of Arts with a focus on digital journalism and design, both from the University of South Florida.


I’ve been honing my training, development, and communication skills in business, the hospitality industry, for the last few decades while developing meaningful relationships with my clients, teams, and community.
I’m passionate about my hometown sports teams, fishing, and most importantly- being the best dad possible. I believe that everyone can be a teacher no matter how small the lesson.
I embrace every day as an opportunity to accomplish something good, bigger than me, and to inspire others to do the same. If I can impact just one person in a positive way today I’ll call it a good start.
For 28 years I have been building and operating local and national businesses from a servant leader approach.
My experience includes:
  • Management of units exceeding $6,000,000 in sales
  • Creating and implementing training materials and programs
  • Creating and managing internal and external communications
  • Engaging and effective presenter: experienced training and seminar leader (10-100pp), master of ceremonies
  • intranet content, menus, newsletters, policies and policy change
I’ve invested in a degree in Professional and Technical Communication with a concentration in Ethics and Leadership from the University of South Florida.
It is incredibly important to my family that we are active members in our community. We enjoy participating with AMI kids, Sarasota Humane Society, All Faiths Food Bank, Rotary, and other local organizations.
