I am renaming our quarterly staff meetings which are lead by our CEO. Currently, they are called “Speak Easys”. Our Behavioral Health division is not fond of that! These meetings were named by our previous CEO about 10 years ago and we are ready for a change. The purpose of the meetings is to share “state of the hospital” information and Human Resources information. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Changing a historical daytime event to an evening format open to the public. The garden club event will have a silent auction with possibly a few live auction items. There will be a station/heavy hors d’oeuvre dining with wine and beer included. Looking for music. The goal is to raise funds to beautify our town. Somehow (name of town) Holiday Auction isn’t that exciting. Looking for a title that is more creative, yet concise. Thanks!
Jay’s Answer: Some ideas to play with:
- Ho, Ho, Hoe! (Gala or Auction)
- The (or TownName) Garden Gala
- Beauty and the Beets (Gala)
We are about to launch our company – Baby Bliss – but are in need of a fitting tagline. We sell luxury baby toys and accessories that compliment (rather than clash with) a parent’s home decor. These toys and accessories are very high-end and we want to convey this (or just generally evoke an emotive response) through our tagline. Any suggestions would be wonderful!
Jay’s Answer: A couple of ideas to play with:
- Oohs and Aahs Guaranteed
- Love the Look and Feel
I am a college student at a college located in Granville, Ohio called Denison University. On my campus, I am part of a new student organization on our campus. It revolves around an academic department on our campus- called the global commerce department. Global Commerce is a spin on international business- an innovative business major for the liberal arts. The name for the organization at the moment is: “Global Commerce Student Organization”, or “GCSO”. We wanted a much more creative and recognizable name for our new student organization. We are focused on providing amazing opportunities to other students in the global commerce department while helping to refine the global commerce curriculum and bettering it for future Denison students.
Jay’s Answer: How about “GloCo” (Global + Commerce)?
I already own a dog walking business called Paws to Train. However, I have decided to niche into only 1 area of training…Getting dogs to walk nicely on lead. This is the most requested training service I am called out for, it is also the one I enjoy the most. So I want to either; A: New name and slogan that shouts what I specialise in. B: keep Paws to Train name but have a catchy slogan. My only issue with keeping Paws to Train is I get many requests for behavioural work which I am not qualified to do, or plan to go into so I spend a lot of my time redirecting my work to a behaviourist.
Jay’s Answer: If you are well known, don’t abandon your name. Can you get a referral fee for any leads you generate? Can you work with others under one roof to offer different specialties? A simple idea is to make your tag line: Walk Your Dog With Ease

Hello! I am looking to create a strong tag line for a non profit endeavour that I am currently spearheading The Sparrow’s Nest Calgary (or The Nest YYC – still undecided). Mission: Through shelter, community and compassion, we elevate young female led households towards their full potential. Vision: Every child (family?? mother??) thriving in a safe and productive home. Goal: To create a robust community of support and a safe communal home that contributes to successful life outcomes for pregnant and parenting women aged 16-26 years who are overcoming adversity and without support systems. Giving young single mothers the assistance needed to get ahead. A hand up, not a hand out. Home (The Nest) will serve 6-8 women (plus their children 0-3yrs) at a time for a period of up to 2 years. Shared accommodation opportunity in a safe and family-centered environment that provides continuous support and mentorship in parenting and other life skills. Objectives: To provide shared housing and other necessities of life to single mothers and their children who are without external supports, are of low income and/or in need. To strengthen the mother-child relationship and promote the healthy development of each child within our care. To break the cycle of inter generational poverty amongst single mothers (aged 16 thru 26 years) by empowering them to pursue further education and job-readiness/skills training. To increase awareness of the unique challenges and stigmas that young single mothers face and the impact that these have on society at large. This organization will serve young mothers who show ambition and drive to work towards a brighter future for themselves and children through community connections, education and/or employment skills training. Residency is based on an application process with the anticipation that most clients will be referred via social partners (schools, youth serving agencies, etc.). We are looking to create both a fun and outgoing – plus empowering and resilient – brand. A never give up and always work hard type of mentality.
Jay’s Answer: Do you have a marketing/business plan yet for your business? If so, the research you did to create that document likely has the seeds of a great name in it based on interviews you’ve done with likely sponsors/donors. If not, then you’re likely guessing based on your own feeling, rather than your target audience. The name/tagline you choose/create needs to resonate with THEM.
