Project Description

Koinonia (coin-o-NEE-yah) is a leading non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in Northeast Ohio that provides residential services, day programs, and employment services to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Part of their mission is to establish partnership opportunities with businesses to help them hire adults with identified disabilities.

We were asked by Koinonia to help orchestrate an event that would create awareness among the business community. With the first business-outreach luncheon, no detail was left unplanned and a successful event was launched with Steve Forbes as the keynote speaker. Even Terminal Tower was lit up in purple to bring awareness to efforts by Koinonia!

Business outreach work included:

  • Consulting
  • Creating material targeting the business community
  • Organizing the event program and speakers
  • Event management and planning for the business luncheon
  • Media relations efforts
  • Event materials design

*This project was completed as part of Roux Creative, the former agency co-owned by Michelle Burgess that closed in 2018.
