Why Not Lead? Podcast
Episode 7 with Liam Symonds 



 This week, we're delighted to share our latest podcast episode with you, featuring the brilliant Liam Symonds, who is a trainee solicitor at one of the top law firms in the world. But, his path wasn't so easy.

In this podcast episode, Liam talks about how he left school with one GCSE in Dance, enrolled on a plumbing course at college, and managed to become the successful trainee solicitor at one of the largest and most prestigious law firms in the world (following suing a top company for discrimination).

For anyone who feels they're stuck in a job rut they can't get out, struggling with motivation or lacking ambition, or even confused about what they'd like to do in their career, this is the ultimate listen for you.
