Welcome in "negotiators"

Negotiation is everywhere, in everyone’s lives, at all times.

Behind the famous negotiations, there are men, there are stories, paths, failures and hope. Each episode hands the microphone to Laurent Combalbert and Marwan Mery who will tell their stories, as professional negotiators, without holding back. Their emotions, their fears, their hopes and what drives them to always go back and negotiate.

# Episode 05 - A negotiation we are proud of

When you are a professional negotiator, there is the “negotiation” that we dream of carrying out, the one we have been waiting and hoping for, sometimes for our whole career. Then there is the daily life, which is often far from what we hoped for but sometimes we get a surprise. When the negotiators got involved in this mission, they had no idea that it would mean so much to them or become such an important/structuring experience. Today they will share with us the story of this mission they are particularly proud of and which changed them forever.
