In this episode of Lessons I Learned in Law Scott Brown speaks to Scott Yelle, Chief Legal and Compliance Officer at KingMakers where he has also been Interim CEO. After leaving corporate private practice at Olswang in 2009 Scott moved in-house holding senior positions at WorldPay and Sky Sports before becoming General Counsel and building the Legal and Compliance function at Sky Betting and Gaming for over 5 years.
Scott shares some of the lessons he learned in law including:
· The more your career in law advances, the less it becomes about the law.
· Progress your career by seeking out different types of work in-house. Stretch yourself into different areas, beyond your comfort zone.
· Try and offer concise, proactive, simple advice where you can. Make your voice heard to help the business or organisation forwards.
Scott also explains how he made the transition from lawyer to company interim-CEO, and how he felt when stepping up to take on that role.
