We live in times of radical transparency and great uncertainty. If we can give you one piece of advice: read the editorial in which we had the privilege of interviewing the incredibly inspiring Kevin Murray. He emphasises that practical communication skills are more important than ever and comes up with great practical tips for Leading Lawyers who are serious about Leadership. Use it to your advantage!
