MI/MGI Marketing Meeting

The Power of Video to Engage your Target Audiences

Thursday 02 December 2021

We hope you can join us for our last Member Marketing Zoom Call of the year! Taking place on Thursday 2 December at the usual time of 16:30 GMT (London) and 11:30 EST (New York).

This week’s topic: The Power of Video to Engage your Target Audiences

Nowadays, video is critical for engaging clients, prospects and talent via your website and social media. More than ever, you need to make your firm stand out in a cluttered digital environment and against all the other firms competing for attention. According to Animoto, video is the number one type of content people want to see on social media - and when a website offers video, users spend 88% longer on the site than on websites without video.

We will be joined by Robert Weiss, president of video production company,MultiVision Digital. Robert has many years of experience working with law and accounting firms delivering engaging video content that motivates people to connect with their firm.

We will also hear from María Saravia, Head of Marketing and Communications at Mackrell firm, Zang, Bergel & Viñes Abogados based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. María will be sharing her Firms’ video marketing successes and achievements among the Group.


How are you using video in your marketing mix, both on your website and on social?

What content works and engages? What’s the optimum length of video?

How can you make video work harder for you and your firm?

What are the best channels and platforms to share your firm’s videos, i.e. your website with a link to a YouTube channel, Vimeo, etc.?

To coincide with the IBA Americas conference in Miami in December, we will be holding a cocktail and networking reception for Mackrell International members, thanks to our good friends at SMGQ Law.

6th December, 7 pm – 9 pm ; venue to be advised

If you are attending the IBA event and will join the reception or you simply want to come to Miami to meet up with the MI members you have not seen for so long or a chance to meet your MI family for the first time all you have to do is RSVP to Mackrell HQ simply letting us know you wish to attend.

You'll then receive an invitation and further information.

We look forward to bringing everyone together again.

MI Mentor - Chris Daw QC

Wednesday 02 March 2022

Chris Daw QC was called to the Bar in 1993 and was appointed Queen’s Counsel in 2013. Before taking silk, Chris built his reputation in the criminal courts, acting in high profile trials and appeals, from serious organised crime to commercial fraud.

Chris works closely with solicitors at every stage of a case and is always available to provide advice and support throughout the preparation of the difficult and sensitive cases in which he is involved.

Chris is a passionate advocate of social mobility, speaking at schools, colleges and other events, encouraging students from state schools to make it into the legal profession. He is a member of the Bar Council Barristers for Schools scheme and recently judged a sixth form advocacy competition at the Supreme Court, organised by Big Voice London.
