This past weekend, JT was honored to have had the opportunity to host our annual media training for the Illinois Women’s Institute for Leadership (IWIL) – an organization working to successfully prepare and propel women to take on elected and appointed positions to advance Democratic ideals through an eight-month fellowship. JT has provided this training for IWIL classes since 2004. IWIL was founded by Loretta Durbin, wife of Senator Dick Durbin, after discussions at the 2000 Democratic National Convention. In 2002, the organization graduated its first class of Fellows.
The two-day training included a Friday session dedicated to social media best practices, channel management and the importance of social listening. Our time on Saturday focused on media interview preparation and skills-building training.
The IWIL Fellows are truly inspiring and ready to change the world. JT is proud to play a small part in their work.
Facebook recently announced a major change to its News Feed algorithm, which determines the content users will see as they scroll through their newsfeeds. The change will prioritize posts from users’ friends and family that inspire a two-way conversation over content from news outlets, companies and organizations. What does this mean for your organization?
JT worked closely with the City of Chicago and World Business Chicago to plan and implement the December 5, 2017 North American Climate Summit with mayors and senior leaders from Canada, Mexico, France and Africa.
JT was retained by Viscosity Oil Company in late July to provide a host of services in honor of its 125th anniversary year, which included: a completely revamped website, new logo, a company video, media relations and a celebratory event for customers, employees and global executive team.
