After 30 years of roaming the country, reporting Scotland for a wide range of radio and television programmes, David Calder has retired from day-to-day broadcasting.

However, he has not hung up his microphone. He has created a local podcast for Portobello - the Porty Podcast - and is working on another - Spirit of Scotland - about Whisky, Gin and Craft Beer!

He's also invested in new technology to help firms use video as a marketing tool. The technology means that clients can provide the stills or video and David turns it into professional content!

Working with his wife, Penny, he provides workshops on media and communication skills, face-to-face in small groups or in webinars.

Why lawyers and other professionals need to use video

Posted by on 18 June 2012

The law, accountancy and other professional services aren’t just sold on skill alone. Clients want to know something about the person they’re buying the service from. They need to like their personality and trust them as well. They can get a real feel for those qualities from a series of videos where the professionals demonstrate their knowledge and expertise. For this to work, they can’t talk about how wonderful they are — they have to prove it, as some American lawyers are doing very successfully. At, we’ve been in touch with those US firms and have learned what makes video work for them. We’ll discuss how THEY make it work shortly.
