Law is a knowledge. Legal Technology/ Innovation/ Design and whatever it takes, I don’t know how to say NO. I’m learning lol!
My vision is the Adventure of Helping & Collaborating to HUMANIZE and Re-DESIGN LAW & SERVICES for PEOPLE.
Leadership means to me to learn to lead myself and leading others too.
The reason I chose to do things differently was because I have always been an outsider.
My biggest learning in my personal journey is failing but committing new errors and also to be rescilient about that like a fenix.
My greatest strength is my empathy and capacity of smile almost all the time.
An extraordinary fact about me is my unstoppeable energy.
The perfect scenario for legal business of the future is to change the old paradigma and start living in the real VUCA enviroment that is life and stop complaining about everything to start creating solutions.
What needs to change in order to make this scenario happen? We need to create an environment where you are allowed to interact with different profiles and perspectives, where you are allowed to iterate embracing failures, but most important where you are allowed to be who you really are and be treated with fully respect and where you are allowed to access to all opportunities.
The top three qualities future legal professionals will need are:
