Operation Education
EM-BL-01
Events and Observances (More than 7 Days) - Cable System I
Time Warner Cable
Waco, TX
Operation EducationOperation Education was a strategic plan of several events throughout an extended time period that positioned Time Warner Cable as a corporate leader in education and technology. The strategy focused on educators, students and their families. Time Warner Cable embarked on a series of projects during Operation Education that included events with a reach to state education leaders, school district administration down to the local schools and their students and parents. The events were designed to strengthen Time Warner Cable’s relationships with district administrators and educators as they work together to engage students in learning through integrated resources and projects. The initiatives allowed Time Warner Cable to bring its products, educational initiatives and Cable in the Classroom programming to the forefront of the education community.

A Hero's Farewell; A New Era Begins
EM-BO-01
Events and Observances (More than 7 Days) - MSO
Cox Communications
Atlanta, GA
A Hero's FarewellAfter 20 years as President and CEO of Cox Communications and a pioneer in the cable telecommunications industry, beloved Jim Robbins announced his retirement. Pat Esser, our COO, was named his successor. Within a two-week timeframe, the PR team put together a multi-month plan to respectfully bid farewell to Robbins, and simultaneously build enthusiasm and support around Esser. The tactics included employee roasts, celebrations, a hilarious video parody, and videotaped and printed employee tributes for Robbins. Esser launched an internal blog to communicate a “behind-the-scenes” look at his ascent, and he built rapport with employees through a “listening tour.”

30 Events in 30 Days - VH1 Save The Music & Their Cable Partners
EM-BQ-06
Events and Observances (More than 7 Days) - Cable Network II
VH1
New York, NY
30 Events in 30 DaysFaced with the goal to touch the lives of 1 million children with music education by 2007, the VH1 Save The Music Foundation created the 30 Events in 30 Days campaign to engage its partners and constituents in a unique public awareness campaign different from anything the Foundation has done before. Multiple cities across the country participated in events that were difficult to organize but instrumental to bringing in media attention during the most powerful time for music education advocacy. Joining their partner MENC, VH1 Save the Music participated in Music in our schools month as a way of highlighting restored instrumental music programs in 30 communities by conducting a super marathon of events – 30 events in 30 days.
