For the fourth year, the JT team was proud to partner with the Trust to help plan every facet of On the Table, including outreach to engage participants, development of messaging, and implementation of digital and mainstream media strategies to support the initiative.
In all, nearly 100,000 people engaged with On the Table in 2017 on social media; through workshops; and as hosts, participants and partners around 5,800 tables in every Chicago neighborhood and throughout suburban communities. Through On the Table, residents convened on the issues that matter and championed the causes that strengthen our region.
The Trust now challenges participants to turn their ideas into tangible activities that benefit neighborhoods and public good. The Acting Up awards will provide up to 100 $1,000 awards and up to 20 $2,500 awards to On the Table participants who have actionable ideas for community impact coming out of their conversations.
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.
