Brian Inkster - Social Media Week Glasgow
Brian Inkster – Business Banter at Social Media Week, Glasgow in 2011

Brian Inkster’s talks on marketing emphasise the importance of personal branding for young lawyers which can and should start whilst still law students. For the more established lawyer Brian tells them it is never too late to start.

Brian points out in his presentations that lawyers have to tell the world who they are and what they are doing. No one else will necessarily blow their trumpet for them. Who else might know the importance of the case they had just won? However, rather than using a loudhailer to do so IT and in particular the internet is now the best tool for this purpose.

Brian in his talks draws from his own experience and that of his law firm, Inksters (the first law firm in Scotland to tweet), on the use of the internet, social media and blogging but often used in conjunction with more traditional marketing techniques.
