In two short weeks, 10 Drew Eckl & Farnham attorneys will travel to Boston, Massachusetts to attend the 2021 Defense Research Institute (DRI) Annual Meeting. Partner Douglas Burrell will be sworn in as the 2021 – 2022 DRI President, and Partners Melody Kiella and Taylor Poncz with each be leading workshops.
Melody Kiella will co-present alongside Roy D. Prather, III of Beveridge & Diamond PC at a workshop about podcasts:
“Lawyers and law firms are utilizing podcasts to educate, inform, and market their areas of expertise to the masses. Podcasts are also being utilized to create a safe place where lawyers can learn how to navigate common struggles and issues they experience in their practices. Creating a podcast is a new concept for many. This workshop will teach you the tools and steps you should take to create a successful podcast.”
Taylor Poncz will be co-presenting alongside Atlanta-based mediator and arbitrator, Winter Wheeler, at the workshop, “The New Age: Mastering Social Media in the 21st Century.”
“2020 taught us many lessons, one of which is that our use of social media is becoming more relevant and necessary to self-marketing as well as the marketing of our law firms. Social media can also feel like time spent away from other important work. Bring your laptop and join this workshop to learn the practical knowledge needed to enhance the online presence of yourself and your firm in order to maximize your exposure and networking opportunities.”
