Let Me Introduce You with Jane Milton
Let Me Introduce You to Simon Ralphs, aka the Restaurant Lawyer
Let me introduce you to Simon Ralphs , the commercial real estate partner at Clarks Legal. Simon and I met via Twitter many years ago when he was often talking about food and drink, food trucks and restaurants….
These days he is often on Instagram – find him as @therestaurantlawyer
Over the years he has made referrals to me, and I have asked him to talk with businesses we are working with too.
Simon nearly became a dentist, but a work experience opportunity lead him into law and then over time he has been able to merge his passion for food with his work too…
He talks about people from whom he learned about how to get the best from his team , about how important it is to make time for the people in your business and other very people focussed skills.
We discuss getting to grips with being able to say you are ‘good’ at something and how it is necessary to promote your work but does not always sit comfortably
He talks about learning to embrace change and welcome it and how the pandemic has allowed him to re-examine, reset and reboot how he works and what the business does too.
Simon offers some great advice if you are setting up a new business too and his calm and friendly manner is why we are always happy when we can refer clients to him.
So let me Introduce You to Simon Ralphs....
