CHICAGO BOARD BROKERAGE
“Create a high-impact PowerPoint presentation to roll out this new joint venture of the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT), the world’s largest financial exchange, and Prebon Yamane, a leading global institutional broker.”
Chicago Board Brokerage (CBB) was formed to launch a breakthrough electronic trading system for CBOT members.

“We’ve been working toward our IPO for years. It’ll be the biggest ever in the U.S. Help us bring it to life.”
Conoco’s highly successful IPO was a landmark for more than its historic size. The offering occurred at a time when equity markets in the U.S. and worldwide were in rapid decline and highly volatile. gabbegroup filmed much of Conoco’s exciting activities in New York, Boston and Philadelphia in the days just prior to the offering and on the listing day itself.
“The documentary-style video you produce will be the centerpiece of our annual awards dinner in Los Angeles – which is attended by entertainment and business luminaries. It’s got to be dramatic and heartfelt.”
The internationally renowned Drucker Foundation, founded by the eminent business academic Peter Drucker, each year selects a nonprofit organization to receive its annual award for innovation in collaborating with business to serve the community. gabbegroup conceived and produced the video for presentation to the Times Square Hotel Jobs Program, a first-of-its-kind program for formerly homeless people that is a lynchpin of the renaissance of the Times Square area. The production featured such companies as Ben & Jerry’s, Home Depot, Marriott and The New York Times.

Utilizing a theme of “growth” as well as extensive music, video, and animation, we developed a custom “video-like” auto-run PowerPoint presentation for the 20th anniversary celebration of the NRP program.
JOHNSON & JOHNSON – CORPORATE PHILANTHROPY
“The corporate philanthropy program at Johnson & Johnson is among the largest in the world. Produce a video that explains the company’s philanthropic mission as part of its famed Credo and depicts in a compelling and dramatic way the contributions the programs its supports make in local communities.”
gabbegroup conceived, wrote and produced the award-winning Visions and Voices from Our Communities. The video, shot on location globally, presented significant regulatory, organizational, cultural and translation challenges. The video opens and closes with a presentation of the civic mission of Johnson & Johnson. The body of the video consists of four, brief, documentary-style vignettes, each of which describes how a Johnson & Johnson non-profit partner is tackling difficult health and education challenges.

“We are looking to you for a highly creative package to display and contain the multiple print and video tools that will be introduced at our global innovation conference.”
The Innovation Conference, attended by Johnson & Johnson’s top management globally, was a first step for this illustrious company. We created the “Innovation Tool Kit,” a large, portable container that is opened by twisting a cap-like mechanism – similar to those found on medication packages – that says, “Open here for innovation.” This container required highly sophisticated design and fabrication. Additionally, as part of the content development for this special event, gabbegroup filmed breakthrough innovation efforts of Johnson & Johnson in Japan.

ROCKEFELLER PHILANTHROPY ADVISORS
“The Rockefeller name has become synonymous with strategic, effective philanthropy, and has inspired generations to use their wealth for greater good. Help us tell the never before told story of how the Rockefeller family inspired the modern age of American philanthropy.”
gabbegroup produced a three-part, broadcast-length documentary about the Rockefeller family’s role in creating philanthropy and the ways succeeding generations of Rockefellers have sustained and broadened the family’s philanthropic ideals. Produced for Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, the video drew on images from the family’s archives, and well as footage shot during a symposium on philanthropy featuring members of the Rockefeller family. The video has received rave reviews from audiences across the country.

Those productions included: a “culture” video used to orient existing and new employees to UBS’s new global strategy; UBS’s first firmwide global recruitment video; and a capabilities video that repositioned UBS’s powerhouse private banking business.

UCLA/JOHNSON & JOHNSON HEALTH CARE INSTITUTE
“We can’t meet all of the health care professionals and policy makers around the U.S. who are interested in our health literacy program for families. Create two videos we can send out: one that explains the HCI and the other that trains professionals to use its tools.”

“We spend three days and a lot of money training people to use our new performance review program. Can you turn this into a video that our people can turn to on demand?”

This production, used with a workbook, combines lectures, real-life models, graphics and animation to turn a complex subject into a readily understandable and compelling training tool.
“We want to use the occasion of our 70th anniversary to bring together our top management at a gala party. Help us stage an event that combines an informative, humorous look at our company’s history with some dramatic accomplishments.”
gabbegroup was asked by Wyeth Corporation (formerly known as American Home Products), one of the world’s leading health care products companies, to conceive, research, write and produce a multimedia presentation to be emcee’d by the company’s CEO. This included rehearsing the CEO and setting up extensive staging for the event. We also produced a commemorative video that was distributed to attendees.
