Transitioning from GC to CEO
Successful General Counsels (GCs) take it upon themselves to dispel stereotypes that they and their teams are risk averse or so detail-oriented they get in the way of the business. They submerge themselves in the longer term objectives of the business and develop reputations as business-savvy advisors on a range of issues and strategies, which puts them in prime position for taking up C-Suite roles.
On this webinar, Blake Morgan Partner Rajiv Joshi, interviewed Natalie Prosser, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at the Office for Environmental Protection, on her journey transitioning from a GC role to that of CEO. Natalie shared some of the challenges she faced, the steps that allowed her to reach her goal, what her first months as CEO looked like and whether her legal background helped or deterred her from succeeding in the new role.
