A conversation with Chris Saul

Show Notes

In this episode we welcome Chris Saul to the program. Chris has spent 39 years at Slaughter & May, a renowned magic circle firm in London, described by some as the most magical of the magic circle firms. Between 2008 and 2016 he was leading Slaughter & May as the firm’s senior partner. When he retired from Slaughter & May he established a consultancy Christopher Saul Associates and continues to share his vast experience as a business leader and transaction advisor, to company executives and key stakeholders in listed and private businesses.

In this conversation we talk about leadership in times of crisis. Having successfully led Slaughter through the global financial crisis 2008, I believe his insights into leadership during difficult times would be a great story to share.
