DAS Team

An 11-strong team of senior managers from leading legal expenses insurer DAS, has successfully completed the National Three Peaks Challenge to raise £9,000 in aid of charity, Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Appeal.

The Appeal helps sick children and babies at Bristol Children’s Hospital and St Michael’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, part of the Bristol University’s Hospital NHS Foundation.

The total height scaled was 3,407 metres in just twenty-four hours, and included shinning up Ben Nevis in Scotland (1,344m); Scafell Pike in England (978m); and Snowdon in Wales (1,085m).

The climbers were made up of eleven members of the DAS senior management team:  Matt Frost, Lyndon Willshire, Paul Timmins, Paul Gibson, Richard Harris, Kathryn Mortimer, Bob Screen, Carol Cluness, Lelita Kaur, Karen Asplin and Rachel Gibson.

DAS head of marketing, Bob Screen, said of the ascents: “It was a lot tougher than I thought it would be.  We have been in training for several months for this and it has brought about a great team spirit.   It’s been an incredible journey and worth every bit of legwork – the Wallace and Gromit Grand Appeal is a fantastic charity, and we do genuinely believe in giving back to the community where we can.  Thank you to everyone, especially friends, family and our co-workers at DAS, for helping us raise £9,000.”

Inbound marketing for law firms – For those about to flock

Chris Davidson Moore LT

Written in honour of Malcolm Young, recently deceased founding member of AC/DC, there are nine references to AC/DC songs throughout this article. We will send a £20 iTunes voucher to the first person who gets in touch to tell us what they are. The forces that are driving change in the legal profession are wide and varied. The ability of law firms and individual solicitors to respond positively and innovatively to these challenges will determine who survives and prospers. Competition for new business is fierce, a dog eat dog world, one might say. Which brings us to AC/CD. Not my favourite rock band, but an acronym for Attract, Convert, Close and Delight – the four pillars of inbound marketing.
