Commercial Awareness – In conversation with Peter Watson


Hello everyone,

A few days back, I had the pleasure of talking to Peter Watson. In 2014, Peter launched Watson’s Daily after a successful career as a stockbroker for 13 years. I must say that Watson’s Daily has been my go to source for increasing my commercial awareness and honing my commercial acumen so it is such an honour to have Peter feature on Legally Evangeline.

We chat about defining commercial awareness, how Watson’s Daily is different from other sources out there, demonstrating commercial awareness in everyday life and much much more.
