The annual holiday party is something of legend around the MT office and the excitement comes for good reason! It’s an opportunity to celebrate our successes, explore a new Chicago event space and recognize our SUPERSTARS!

What’s an MT SUPERSTAR you ask? Those are the 7 or so employees chosen each year by the entire company who’ve gone above and beyond in the following ways:

– overall work ethic and commitment to our customers
– leadership through embracing challenges and problems
– positive influence on others through their attitude, help, great work, and example
– exemplifies MT core values: Commitment, Kindness, Humility

Every SUPERSTAR gets a trophy and a framed word cloud made from all the great quotes their co-workers said about them. Plus each year’s SUPERSTARS are immortalized on a platinum record that we hang in our most prominent meeting room.

2016 SUPERSTARS:

Read the quotes next to each SUPERSTAR to see how they shined through this year!

“Jasmin exemplifies our core values by doing whatever it takes to make sure we’re successful, but doing it with a constant smile and with no expectation for recognition. Her responsibility and commitment set the standard for event support and her work ethic is a great demonstration of leading by example. She’s easy to work with but she sets a high standard that makes us all better. She’s inspiring!”
“To me, Andrea is the ultimate leader. She is genuine, unmatched in humility, excels at recognizing strengths in others, and deeply cares about the people on her team. She has taken on so much in the past year, overseeing her current teams in addition to taking on the challenge of the Warehouse. She never cracked under pressure and always managed to do whatever was needed to get the job done.”
“There are very few people that capture the MT spirit like Veronica, she is so dedicated to the company, her colleagues and making sure every job is handled with care. She is always beaming with enthusiasm for MT and will step up whenever asked to handle a task. We are all very lucky to have Veronica on the MT team.”
“I work closely with Meghan on many of my accounts and am so impressed with her poise, professionalism, can-do attitude and proactive nature. I trust her completely. Meghan embodies our core values in every sense. The fact that she organized a Warehouse appreciation shows her kindness. She never takes credit for her amazing work – instead humbly redirecting to her colleagues. Her commitment to our clients is incredible. “
“Every department in MT requires something from Candido almost daily to be successful. In the course of one day, he is performing necessary and fast paced tasks for Event Support, the Warehouse, the IT team and more. He never complains and performs his work with calm, patience and kindness. I have turned to Candido for assistance repeatedly and never are turned away despite the mountains of other work he is asked to do. Candido epitomizes everything MT should be.”
“Chris has the loudest laugh I’ve ever heard…like I can hear him from my desk, daily. But I think that is so great and so important because in the chaos that is running events, we need someone who livens the room just by being there…and that’s not a trait that comes easy to everyone. What really makes Chris a superstar though is his commitment to others. He’ll find answers to questions he doesn’t know just because you asked him, he’ll come to your desk and show you inventory just to solve a problem…all around he just goes above and beyond. “
“Nancy is one of the kindest and most thoughtful people I’ve met at MT. She’s been nothing but warm and welcoming from day one, and I think everyone in the office appreciates her spirit. She has worn many hats at MT and will always go the extra mile to get something done. She’s an incredible communicator and our clients and vendors love working with her. She is truly someone who flies under the radar and I think that makes her even more of a SUPERSTAR!”

The Event Space:

We had an amazing time at Jackson Junge Gallery this year! Their space is really inspiring and features great local art that can’t help but grab your attention. If you’re looking for a small meeting space in Chicago, we highly recommend it!

Congrats to all our SUPERSTARS and we can’t wait for next year’s party!

Happy holidays from everyone here at Meeting Tomorrow!
