SAS Who Dares Wins centre stage for Today’s Conveyancer Inaugural Podcast

Today’s Conveyancer is delighted to launch our very first podcast in collaboration with Lawyer Checker.

In this first podcast, Tom Lyes, Director of Engagement at Lawyer Checker talks to Hannah Ouseley, who recently appeared on SAS Who Dares Wins.

Hannah is a knowledge lawyer at Penningtons Manches Cooper in the Real Estate division and beat 40,000 other entrants to appear on the Channel 4 show.

Hannah describes the experienced as “a brutal mental and physical challenge over the 7 days”, adding that it felt an awful lot longer.

During their discussion Tom talks to Hannah about the residential conveyancing process, the challenges the industry has faced over the last 18 months, and how her experiences on the survival show translates to her life in the law.

“Like many lawyers, I am personally drive by a desire for perfection. But the show taught me that I can’t be perfect at everything all the time.“

Says Hannah

“Yes that’s great for clients but there’s here’s a huge amount of personal pressure we put on our ourselves which sometimes leads us to fail and the biggest lesson I learnt from the show was how failing doesn’t make you a failure, failure pushes you onto success and makes you a stronger person.”

“That was a key take away for me… I am stronger than I think I am. We are all capable of an awful lot more than we might think.”

The podcast was recorded just as the second phase of the SDLT holiday started with Tom suggesting there’s a comparison between the resilience conveyancers have shown over the course of the last few months and the challenges Hannah faced on the show.

Commenting on the launch of the podcast David Opie, Managing Director of Today’s Media says

“Alongside our written and video content, podcasting is a great way to continue to engage with our audience of conveyancing practitioners who don’t always have time to sit and read an article or watch a video.”

“We’ve been exploring this for some time and pleased it has come together. We’re especially excited to have had Hannah on our first guest.”
