Everyday Gestures Driving Positive Change with Tiffany Yarde

Tiffany Yarde joins me on the first episode of 2019 to discuss the every day gestures through which marketing professionals can push for positive change. Our conversation touches on team building, career development, and diversity and inclusion. Rather than look solely to grand programmatic or policy solutions, we explore the quotidian efforts that leaders and junior team members can employ to drive change in individuals’ careers while expanding diversity at their firms and throughout the industry.

Diversity as a Business Development Imperative with Paul D. Webb

Paul Webb in the Richards, Layton & Finger offices following an interview with Michael Meyer of the Legal Marketing Studio.

Paul D. Webb and I begin this episode with a general discussion of the relationship between marketing and business development from his perspective as Director of Marketing and Business Development at Richards Layton & Finger. We move on quickly to the heart of the conversation: a discussion of diversity in the legal industry. We touch on the need for advancing diversity not only among the ranks of attorneys (particularly leadership) but also among legal marketing teams. Our conversation touches on the business imperative of having a diverse firm, what it means to be a diverse firm and the processes and systems that will be needed to bring about diverse firms.

Good Photography is Vital in Effective Legal Marketing with Michael N Meyer

Good photography echoes and amplifies your marketing messages while effectively boosting engagement with written content. In this episode, I encourage attorneys (and marketers working with attorneys) to expand their concept of how they can and should use photographs or other visual content in their marketing. It is no longer enough to have a mediocre attorney portrait; nor is it enough to have only one’s attorney portrait. At the very least that portrait should be built around the firm brand; ideally it will be built around the firm brand, support its marketing strategies and exist within a library of like images that can be repurposed across the full range of communications that an individual attorney or larger firm is making use of.
