Giles Thompson – Getting Agile as a Lawyer going into Tech

Hustle & Grit with Eric Janssen Build Your Book

This week, we’re joined by Giles Thompson from across the pond in London, UK. He’s a former city lawyer turned Head of Growth at Avvoka, where they’re doing incredible things in the world of document automation.

We get into his story of the things he had to learn, unlearn, and is in the process of learning.

These ideas include:

  • using agile methodology to create change in incremental and systematic ways…
  • the lessons to be learned and adapted about how the tech world works and how that applies to law…
  • the process of selling to lawyers (what’s it like being on the other side)…
  • why law firms and lawyers need to start thinking about customer experience before someone else does…
  • and a lot more…

The idea is simple: if you can learn these ideas and adapt them from one of the most productive industries on the planet, you can set yourself apart massively! This conversation is unique because it’s from a lawyer who went into a business function at a startup and is creating waves in the industry.Lots to learn in this one!
