About Us

The Jane Group delivers solutions.

Headed by Jane and Jim Hulbert, TJG is a global crisis communications firm based in the Chicago area. After 20 years of working with independent, international, charter, for-profit, Montessori, and Waldorf institutions, we know schools and how to serve their complex communications needs. The realities of crisis management are constantly evolving. We help our clients understand changing dynamics and give them the tools they need to navigate them.

We specialize in crisis management, legal expertise and risk management, strategic, long-term crisis communications and management, media training and media navigation, and board training and advisement.

Two decades ago, we started out as small business owners in a home office. Today we work globally, from Dallas to Dubai, at our offices in Chicago and Boston. We may have grown, but we remain connected to the concerns of all of our clients, and understand the school landscape like no one else. To those who’ve hired us, consulted with us, recommended us, connected with us, and called us in the middle of the night, we thank you. We’re better for it and wouldn’t be here without you.
