Conversations with GCs: Episode 2
Host David Hamm, Co-Chair of the In-House Subcommittee of the ABA Corporate Governance Committee, talks with Brady Long, the Executive Vice President and General Counsel of Transocean, a leading international provider of offshore contract drilling services for oil and gas wells. In this episode, Brady shares his path to the role of GC, some thoughts on essential GC skills and characteristics, current GC hot topics and practical and actionable advice for those aspiring to be GCs. Two themes run through the conversation: (1) the need to always maintain a focus on adapting and (2) remembering the human element in every relationship. Brady’s primary piece of advice for aspiring GCs is to remember the human element as they are developing their networks.
