After hosting the first series of our Talk Straight | Think Smart podcast, what did Partner Adam Walford think were the key ingredients needed to create a successful entrepreneur? A strong work ethic, bravery, confidence and imagination. Find out why by listening to this recap episode.
We asked Adam if he ever thought he'd be hosting a podcast when he was training to be a lawyer. Considering iPods hadn't even been invented yet... he said no. But he believes lawyers now have a much wider role in the business community. They have the relevant knowledge and his advice to trainee lawyers is that they ought to have a voice in the conversation.
In this special edition, Legal Director Lydia Christie, joins Adam to ask him about the lessons learned from the impressive guests he's interviewed this year.
From losing trade mark applications in a flood in Delhi, to impromptu radio appearances, the guests have all had unique stories to tell. But despite their distinct personalities and businesses, they've got some things in common. No matter their journey, they've all had the spirit and confidence to take a chance on their idea.
