Episode #4 - Influence of others: Persuasion, negotiation and diplomacy for conflict resolution


Host  Sophie Thériault

Guests: Françoise Bertrand and Antoine Pellerin



Françoise Bertrand, a corporate director with a prestigious career, and Antoine Pellerin, a lawyer in administrative law and a man of theater, discuss "Influencing Others: Persuasion, Negotiation and Diplomacy for Conflict Resolution". Ms. Bertrand draws on her long history of experience to recall how communication can influence one's society. Mr. Pellerin argues that the role of government is no longer simply to make good decisions, but also to explain them. And they both emphasize the fundamental aspect of listening and paint a picture of brave spaces to move issues and relationships forward and to voice dissent.
