Short films and videos are an effective way of communicating and engaging with audiences, and Stockton-based law firm Square One Law are thrilled to be sponsoring the film package in the upcoming Tees Businesswomen Awards.
Tees Business will host the 2020 Tees Businesswomen Awards, in association with Northern Skills Group, online as the results are revealed during a virtual event on the evening of January 14, 2021.
Films of all the shortlisted candidates, produced by Middlesbrough-based Wander Films, will be played out before each result of the 10 categories are revealed – and they have been sponsored by Square One Law.
“You will see from our website and social media that we often create videos about our clients and their projects,” says managing partner Gill Hall.
“We are currently filming a series with leading innovative organisations across the region and because of this, it seems like the right fit for us to sponsor the Film category.”
As well as their sponsorship of the shortlists’ films, Square One Law are keen to celebrate the success of local businesswomen and help raise their profiles.
“It’s vital that we raise the profile of women in business and encourage female entrepreneurship by recognising the successes of and contributions that women make in local businesses and the Awards are perfect for that,” says Gill.
As a progressive firm, it’s no surprise that Square One Law has a female managing partner.
“It’s important that women support other women, particularly in sectors that are traditionally male dominated,” says Gill.
“Women are often the ‘unsung heros’ or are making a real difference in supporting roles in businesses.”
Gill is encouraging others to tune into the awards on January 14.
“I’d encourage everyone to think about those women who really bring something special to their organisation, whatever their role, and to celebrate their successes and recognise their contribution,” she says.
“We need to shout about our achievements, act as role models for younger women who are just starting out and let the business world see the benefits of having women in critical roles within their organisations.”
