Conversations with GCs: Episode 5.1

Olga is the CEO of Parley Pro, a next-generation contract management company that has pioneered digital negotiation technology, a former GC and prolific writer and speaker. To say that our conversation was inspiring is an understatement. To give you a taste, she closed the time with this zinger: "We should all strive to live our legal dreams, because in doing so we provide a better service to others and have a bigger impact on the world."

So, if you want to stop going through the motions and start living your legal dream, tune in as we take a deep dive into Olga's inspiring story, from her immigration to this country, vocational aspirations that ranged from being an artist, engineer, Ph.D in economics to a tech lawyer (yes, you read that correctly!) and eventually joining the "startup circus" in SV. With her characteristic wit and humor, Olga takes us on a journey and provides great insight into how to overcome fear, handle vocational pivots, push through the "no train" and reverse engineer almost anything. I hope that you get as much out of this conversation as I did!
