University of Sunderland LogoFor the third year running J Marshall Events was thrilled to meet students from Sunderland University in the UK, who were in New York City as part of their BA (hons) Event Management course. The final year students were visiting NYC to conduct research on events held in Manhattan. They took in Broadway shows, comedy gigs and a basketball game, whilst researching advertising methods and the use of social media.

Eventful Discussion

We met at the W Hotel, Union Square and chatted about my experience in event planning and running an event production company in New York. Various topics were discussed including, what the students want to do when they graduate, how to gain more experience in events and what future employers might be looking for.

Meeting and Mentoring

It’s always great meeting young people to offer encouragement and advice and it’s especially fun interacting with, and mentoring, students from the UK. I’m already looking forward to seeing Alyssa Brown, University of Sunderland’s Senior Lecturer again next year and we’re already thinking about the 2018 study trip.

Annual Fall Benefit

J Marshall Events was honored to team up with Harboring Hearts to assist with their Annual Fall Benefit. A non-profit organization Co-Founded by Michelle Javian and Yuki Kotani, Harboring Hearts provides financial and moral support to families of those receiving cardiac treatments.

JME worked closely with Michelle, Katherine Ronberg and the Harboring Hearts team for almost 7 months which culminated in an exciting event at the fabulous Core Club in Manhattan. The program included live music, honoree awards, a silent auction, speeches and a specially produced video.

Guests, Sponsors and Honorees

The almost 200 guests included families who have received Harboring Heart’s support, sponsors of the Foundation and Honorees, Constance Milstein and Dr. Hiroo Takayama. The show was hosted by the charming Ryan Serhant (Million Dollar Listing, While we’re Young) and an effervescent Dr. Mehmet Oz (The Dr. Oz Show) stepped in to emcee the electronic fundraising component powered by Givergy (formerly Daana).

The evening wound down with a couple of songs from Tony Award Winning performer, Nikki James. However, the guests were having so much fun enjoying the performance along with the amazing dessert donations that the doors remained open for quite a while longer.

Compassion and Resilience

It was a long production day but a very moving experience to be surrounded by people with such compassion and resilience. Harboring Hearts has helped many families of all ages and through support and donations will continue to do so for many years.

Cardinal Turkson Q&A Session at UNICEFWhat an eventful time we’ve had at J Marshall Events! Recently, JME helped UNICEF to introduce Cardinal Turkson as he led a discussion for over 100 people on climate change and how it is affecting today’s children and future generations. The Cardinal, who works closely with Pope Francis, discussed how today’s society needs to make efforts to take care of our environment in order to preserve it for generations to come.

The insightful remarks by Cardinal Turkson were followed up by a great Q&A session from members of several Child-Focused Agencies like ChildFund, Save the Children, and SOS among others. Overall another wonderful and great event with UNICEF!

JMP Launch Party PosterIt’s not very often that the whole team can get together for reasons other than work, but this was a lovely exception! The in-house team and friends all piled into the office for a well deserved celebration - the launch of J Marshall Productions!

J Marshall Productions TeamAfter months of planning a new Arts and Media page for the J Marshall Events site and completing the new brochure, our new department officially went live on April 11th! As hard as we’ve been working, it was nice to finally take a moment to relax, sip champagne and just enjoy each others company.

Christine and Jule-Ann MarshallWhile chatting with her guests Julie-Ann Marshall explained that, “it’s always been a dream of mine to support new cultural relationships between the UK and the US. As a Brit with production experience in New York, I’m hoping that organizations without an office in the States will approach us for their international projects”.

We hope so too! All that is left to do now is to spread the word about J Marshall Productions, follow up on some exciting forthcoming projects and to continue to enjoy what we do!

Gerald in Times SquareJME were thrilled to be part of this year’s NYCxDESIGN week by managing the launch of the Gerald Project Exhibition.  Created by British design house, Lazerian, Gerald is a dog like you’ve never seen before! More than 100 of the world’s most influential artists, illustrators and designers have taken Gerald, the paper dog, and made it their own as part of the two-year Gerald Project. The culmination of the project took place last week in trendy TriBeCa.

119 Geralds made the journey across the pond from Britain (they are made from paper supplied by James Cropper, the 170 year old British paper mill) and were joined by some of their artists, fashion designers, retailers, jewelers, creative advertisers and the media for the celebration.

The launch took place in one of our new favorite event spaces, 60 Reade, and the Geralds were very much at home among the steel columns, exposed brick walls, crystal chandeliers, Brazilian wood floors and multiple bars! With specially made cocktails and passed hors d’ouvers courtesy of Peter and Josh at KG Fare the Geralds had a real New York experience – as did the guests who left feeling truly inspired by such an ambitious and inspiring exhibition.
