``Thank you so much for bringing your warmth, personality and knowledge to Conagra Brand’s black history month kick-off. You captivated our employees, made an impression on our Lead Team, and definitely have us thinking about how we develop our “D&I in our DNA. Tim thanks for bringing an inspirational message and challenging us to think about diversity in our own personal lives. We must be strong with truth but gentle with people!``
``Tim Jones served as a guest speaker at the second meeting for the Chicago Police Department Superintendent Eddie Johnson’s Community Policing Advisory Panel which consists of 12 local and national experts tasked with rebuilding the Chicago Police Department’s community policing. Tim was invited to the meeting to offer his insights on community – police relationships based on his role as a community leader and organizer. Tim’s presentation focused on community – police relationships in the City of Chicago, with a particular focus on the Department’s relationship with millennials or the 18-30 age group. Tim’s presentation was well researched, thoughtful and informed. Panelists truly benefited from Tim’s insight, particularly as it incorporated business model philosophies, as well as his candor. Tim’s input, analysis and recommendations will be incorporated in the Advisory Panel’s final report.``
Thank you to Tim Jones for the extraordinary and uplifting speech he just gave to the federal diversion court! One of my colleagues described it as “magical.”
The participants are first-time nonviolent offenders facing federal criminal charges and participating in an intensive supervision program in order to avoid sentences of incarceration while working on substance abuse, mental health, and other challenges. I know them well and can say with confidence that they were all moved and inspired by Tim’s words.
Tim, you truly are an inspiration to us all!!!
``Tim Jones is nothing short of AMAZING! He spoke to my students at Oak Park and River Forest High School about ``The Truth About Success.`` The majority of our mentees are students of color and we know that exposure is an integral part of their success. For my students to see a young man of color who has many accolades, is a true activist and community leader, a great story to share, and both a teacher and a learner is so inspiring. Tim was extremely engaging, interactive, and very creative with his presentation. Afterwards, my students came up to my office and asked if Tim was still in the building. They were so impressed and impacted by his presentation and presence that they wanted to continue the conversation. We look forward to having Tim join us again and excited for the world to experience his greatness!``
Looking forward to serving you
