Earlier this week, MGI North America (MGI NA) and Mackrell International (MI) co-hosted our first marketing Zoom call. Leaders within MI and MGI NA Canadian-based member-firms gathered together to explore opportunities to collaborate and share ideas. We identified many potential business overlaps, discussed each Firm’s specialty practice areas and niches, and exchanged insight on how to sustain growth during and after the coronavirus pandemic. It was wonderful to hear positive highlights from everyone about their own experiences as a member of MGI and MI, and hear the different approaches Firms are taking to provide their clients with the highest level of support during this unprecedented time.
MGI North America, MGI Worldwide, and Mackrell International have enjoyed many years of partnering and collaborating, and now more than ever, it is essential to have strong relationships and friendships. We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to bring our Canadian-based groups together and open up a new channel of communication in which we plan to continue our conversations. Frank Fazzari of MGI NA member-firm Fazzari & Partners even raised the idea of a joint MGI-MI in-person meeting to take place in the post-COVID-19 future!
Nancy Damato, Marketing Director for MGI NA, says, “It was wonderful to gather Canadian-based member firms of MGI Worldwide with CPAAI and Mackrell International on a web call! We look forward to continuing our conversations, enhancing our relationships, and exploring opportunities to collaborate.”
Keith Heddle, Managing Director at Mackrell International, adds, “From my perspective, it was really good to see a great bunch of people across Canada, from West to East, getting on famously and finding commonalities of experience, of purpose, and opportunity for clients – both now and for the future. It’s great to be cooperating like this – a definite silver lining from the COVD-19 cloud.”
