Being an entrepreneur at heart: pride, passion and trust

I want to share some thoughts about what being an entrepreneur means to me. Hope you enjoy it. 

Life-changing experience

Your work here shouldn’t be seen as a job. If you are looking for a “job”, look elsewhere

Education

If you are not learning enough, look elsewhere

Know the business

Understand what we are building as a team. Seek to truly know people. Make the most of the journey

Love what you do

This is not a nine to five job

Make your own destiny

Benefit from ownership, responsibilities given to you

Build something

If you are not building something special, look elsewhere for a “job”

Be informed

Seek to learn, seek to know

Multiple-hats

Make the most of this life changing experience. Ask for ownership for different tasks, from different departments

Emotional ownership

Own with passion

Memorabilia

Take lots of pictures, keep the memorabilia

Laugh daily

If you are not having fun, look elsewhere for a “job”

Culture builder/keeper

Be part of building our culture, influence, be passionate about your ideas

CASE STUDY: Video enabled collaboration in global law firm Linklaters

Linklaters is a leading global law firm, advising prominent global corporations and financial institutions on their most important and challenging transactions and assignments. The firm  employs over  4,500 people, throughout a network of 27 offices in 19 different countries and has revenues of 1.2 billion pounds Sterling per annum. 

Challenges
Linklaters support clients in achieving their objectives wherever they do business, so communicating and collaborating effectively between colleagues, regardless of location, is crucial to the firm’s ability to deliver. As a global organisation Linklaters wanted to further improve its existing videoconferencing solutions from Videocall, which were being under-utilised through issues with latency and the overall quality, which tended to put people off using them.  The firm also planned to reduce the costs associated with travel above and beyond the direct cost of flights and hotels; for example, the time spent travelling between airports. The challenge was not only to decrease travel itself and the costs associated with it, but to also increase and improve communications across the organisation as a whole.
