In Conversation with Chris Fowler from BT Group
In our latest Digital Legal Exchange podcast, Michele DeStefano sits down with Chris Fowler, General Counsel Technology at BT and Exchange Faculty Advisor, to explore why he joined the Exchange and to share his experiences of creating the "best-connected legal function". Chris discusses failure, the importance of having a North Star, why developing a front-footed communication plan can be critical in digital transformation efforts and describes his experiences in adopting a client-centric and data-driven approach to transformation to add value to the business. In this key highlight, he also explains the importance of focusing on engaging employees and celebrating their efforts: "One of the greatest things I think about in terms of our overall transformation is that fundamentally we are a more engaged, higher performing team now than we were previously and a more engaged team as a more fun team to be around."

In Conversation with Shahar Markovitch from Natural Intelligence
In our latest Digital Legal Exchange podcast, Michele DeStefano sits down with Shahar Markovitch, Exchange Faculty Advisor and Chief Digital and Transformation Officer at Natural Intelligence, to explore why he joined the Exchange and his views on Digital Transformation in the legal function. Shahar shares his thinking on why digital and technology creates an opportunity that forces a change in the legal function, and he and Michele share stories about why the customer experience, and delighting customers is a critical factor in digital transformation. “Digital and technology creates an opportunity that forces a change in the legal function, because a modern organization has to be agile, they have to be nimble, they have to be faster and take risk, sometimes even work on the edge of risk. And that creates a forcing mechanism for legal to change.”
