Zero Fatalities Safety Summit

Since the first Safety Summit in 2008, Penna Powers has enthusiastically played an integral role in planning, promoting and executing the Zero Fatalities Safety Summit. From the beginning, we wanted this Summit to be the result of collaboration. To that end, and together with a strong Executive Planning Committee and Working Group Committee composed of UDOT, DPS, UHP, EMS and UDOH safety advocates, the most recent Safety Summit marked another success.

By involving Zero Fatalities partners to participate in the summit’s planning and execution, the end result was filled with impactful, relevant information for our varied audience of safety advocates. The Zero Fatalities Safety Summit is a key tool in (1) unifying safety advocates from across the state (2) fostering discussion about key safety issues (3) finding meaningful solutions. We strongly believe that our cumulative efforts at the summit to educate and unify attendees saves lives on our roads.

This year’s Safety Summit particularly showcased our team’s adaptability and quick thinking. When faced with the unexpected cancellation of a keynote speaker on the eve of the presentation, our experts seamlessly took charge, captivating the audience with an orchestrated presentation. We showcased a comprehensive overview of the ongoing outreach initiatives and left a lasting impact on the attendees and as proactive and resourceful leaders in the field. Additional efforts towards an exceptional execution of this event encompassed creative elements, from meticulously designed signage and banners to streamlined check-in procedures. We thrived in the face of adjustments, ensuring real-time updates were seamlessly integrated into the attendee experience. A well-choreographed awards luncheon, dynamic workshops and helpful networking opportunities harnessed positive feedback results.

100 Deadliest Days: Jordin Petersen Seamons

Penna Powers has played a key role in the creation, distribution, promotion and implementation of various summer campaigns during the 100 Deadliest Days of summer. With traffic fatalities at a record pace, a press conference was held to kick off the beginning of the 100 Deadliest Days of summer. Speakers issued a plea to Utahns today to drive safely.

Jordin Petersen Seamons, a particularly impactful speaker, shared the heart-wrenching account of her husband’s tragic death in a crash caused by a drowsy driver. The visually and emotionally compelling press conference drew an impressive turnout of media, and leveraging an integrated approach, we disseminated her message across social platforms ahead of the launch to garner attention and invite followers to tune in. We produced a polished video with her and her young daughter to share online, orchestrated a live stream of the event and coordinated in-studio interviews later that day and week to keep the momentum going. Jordin spoke to the media, pleading with the public to think about the social contract you enter when getting behind the wheel.

Visuals included a table of her late husband’s memorabilia from the crash and his life. Photos of her grieving at the funeral caught the eye of everyone, stirring a profound emotional connection and desire to think and change. These displays were accompanied by creative campaign materials and startling up-to-date statistics to also draw discussion. Media toolkits included all of these elements and were available in-person and digitally to the media.The success of this event was rooted in connections to crash survivors, strong relationships with media who know they will get desired and relevant information when they attend, and a team willing and ready to strategically create and execute all the needed materials for a powerful event.
