We like to think of ourselves as an extended family.

It has been said that sometimes it “takes a village” to produce a corporate event or media-worthy experience. Fortunately we know a lot of villagers. However to efficiently mobilize the masses there needs to be a few key leaders. The core JGS team ensures your next project is memorable success by having the right amount of people, in the right places at the right times to get the job done and done well.
