Matthias Schranner, a former hostage negotiator about how to handle the current worldwide crisis and to emerge stronger afterwards

Here's how to emerge even stronger from the actual crisis around Covid-19: Call you investor. Call your clients. And get yourself a better deal.

Sounds counterintuitive to you? Listen to the new Bits & Pretzels Podcast feat. Matthias Schranner, an FBI-trained negotiator who started his own firm, the Schranner Negotiation Institute, in Zurich with offices in New York and Hong Kong.

Matthias actually thinks that now’s the best time to negotiate for founders – if you act quickly: “You need to be the first one to call your investors, telling them, I want to negotiate because I want to find a solution for the future.”

Matthias consults global organizations like the UN, governments, and political parties. And he has coached hundreds of people - from ambitious juniors to top-level managers - via his books and seminars. So, if you’re eager to tune your negotiating skills in order to close the best deal possible - Matthias is the man to listen to.
