Simply the Best! with Robert Hanna

Robert takes us on an amazing journey through his life story. He shares how being ‘recently listed as a LinkedIn top one 100, Rising Star, and Influence’ and starting a successful recruitment agency for lawyers was inspired by the legacy of his grandfather who ran the ‘largest law firm outside of any major London law firm’ and how his mother, a determined ‘strong willed, independent woman, with a lot of that grit and determination, and resilience’ inspired him on to become a successful entrepreneur and to be the best.

Robert shares how he opened doors during the pandemic pivoting from a footsie 250 company into entrepreneurship to become a globally recognised and successful recruitment law firm where he ‘helps lawyers find jobs’.

Robert describes himself as loyal. ‘I think loyalty is one of the most important traits, because loyalty and trust is one of the most important things in business.  I know some people would say that's quite a bizarre answer, but for me loyalty and trust, it's so hard to find in business so hard to find, because a lot of people are out for self-gain. And there's nothing necessarily wrong with that…., everyone wants to get on and have a good career, a good livelihood and do well. But if you can have someone who is genuinely kind-hearted, loyal, devoted to you and trustworthy, that's for me’

An inspiring encouraging & empowering interview. Full of life lessons and drive. Many doors opened. Enjoy the ride!

..’you can see that competitive nature in everything that I do, I have to be the best. I'm quite vocal about that, not in the sense of an arrogance thing, but just in my internal self drive, you know, I want to be the best I can be and always push myself.
