The Boutique Lawyer Show: Likeability trumps skill (and other lessons for lawyers)

12 October 2021 By Robyn Tongol

From youthful run-ins with a now-Supreme Court judge to the need to find a cure for “resting bastard face”, Ian Whitworth’s life and teachings for business owners are unlike any other.

On this episode of The Boutique Lawyer Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Scene Change co-founder and author Ian Whitworth to discuss his journey from vet school to cab driving to being an advertising creative director and now a business author, and the myriad professional lessons he learned along the way.

The pair discuss whether likeability is more important than skill for law firm owners, the scourge of resting bastard face, staying business fit and other key business truths that lawyers must be aware of, particularly in the wake of so much marketplace change.
