Collaborating throughout MSI Month 2019

3rd July 2019

Join MSI members around the world to celebrate our 4th MSI Month in September.

What is MSI Month?

Many of you will be familiar with MSI Month, when member firms run an event or activity that creates greater awareness of MSI, promotes membership benefits and develops new business opportunities.

This year, the strategic focus for MSI Month is Collaboration. Our common purpose, as MSI members, is to win and retain high quality clients with international needs. So, take the opportunity this September to collaborate with your firm, colleagues and MSI and promote your international capabilities and global reach to staff, clients and prospects.

  2. Set a date in September and promote the upcoming activity to your staff, clients and prospects.
  3. Send an email to Pauline in the MSI Secretariat with your plans for MSI Month so we can promote your event on our website and social media.

Event & Activity inspiration

There are many activities and events that you could consider, and no doubt you will want to collaborate with your staff to identify the best event for your firm, but here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Organise a virtual meeting with other member firms to get to know each other
  • Host a joint event together with another member firm and invite clients and prospects to an engaging talk and networking reception
  • Organise a lunch ’n learn or breakfast seminar for your staff to learn more about MSI and the benefits of your MSI membership
  • Organise an away day to visit another member firm
  • Organise a branded MSI charity event to support a good cause whilst raising awareness of your MSI membership

We have a range of marketing resources that can support your efforts – these are available via MSI MemberLink. Additionally, we are happy to deliver a presentation either in person or virtually.

All of your MSI Month activities will be showcased at our International Conference in Madrid in October. And don’t forget, there are prizes to be won so start collaborating today and get involved!

The greater the participation, the greater the impact.
