For 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.

East River NYC – Students & Bridges
Central Park – Students in Wonderland
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.
2016 was a busy year, and the J Marshall Events team was thrilled to work on many amazing projects. We provided event planning and production services to multiple clients, including, audio visual, webcasting, banners, event staff, technicians, staging, floral and many more resources. Here's a brief rundown of events from the later months of last year. It was an eventful 2016.

The Good Dog Foundation’s Annual Bash (at Barneys)
A fundraiser held in Freds restaurant at Barneys. The Good Dog Foundation provides therapy dog services to people in health care, social service, educational and community facilities in New York, and at disaster sites around the country. We were also honoured to become a part of the Good Dog family in 2016 when our very own Georgie Girl became a certified Good Dog Foundation Therapy Dog!
Friday 26th June is Bring Your Dog To Work Day in the United Kingdom, and all of us at J Marshall Events, being dedicated dog lovers, are proud to support this worthy event, organised by HOWND®. All proceeds this year are going to All Dogs Matter, a wonderful dog rescue charity based in London and Norfolk that re-homes hundreds of dogs each year.
You as a business, or an individual employee, can become a sponsor by visiting the Bring Your Dog To Work Day website and making a donation online or by text, and uploading your Company Logo or a doggy selfie.
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead, raise some money for All Dogs Matter, increase your job satisfaction and have some fun at work with your beloved pooch. We are lucky enough to do that everyday with our JME Family Member, Georgie Girl.
