I want to share some thoughts about what being an entrepreneur means to me. Hope you enjoy it.
Your work here shouldn’t be seen as a job. If you are looking for a “job”, look elsewhere
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
If you are not building something special, look elsewhere for a “job”
Seek to learn, seek to know
Make the most of this life changing experience. Ask for ownership for different tasks, from different departments
Own with passion
Take lots of pictures, keep the memorabilia
If you are not having fun, look elsewhere for a “job”
Be part of building our culture, influence, be passionate about your ideas

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.
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.
