Award-winning GC, public speaker, and author Theo Kapodistrias learnt early how essential it was to speak with myriad stakeholders in a language they can all understand. Doing so, he says, opens the door to more successful collaboration and productivity across the board.

In this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy welcomes back Evergen general counsel Theo Kapodistrias to discuss how and why he discovered the importance of being a good communicator and how to speak to others professionally, avoiding “legalese” where necessary, how the post-pandemic working world makes good communication even more critical, and the questions in-house lawyers need to ask of themselves in order to become better at communication.

Kapodistrias also reflects on the steps he took to bolster his skill set, the investment of time required, learning how to speak to different business units, the flow-on effects from better understanding how to communicate and engage, how high a priority being a good communicator must be in the current climate, appreciating the different modes of communication, how and why he uses video messaging, how and why he is better off – personally and professionally – for being a good communicator, and the book he is soon to release on these matters.
