About me

Negotiating while Black

I Negotiated major deals, trained thousands of executives, and continuously trained myself over the past 18 years. But so are many people in the world.

The difference is my background.  A Black man from the French Caribbean. Raised by a single mother in a “bad” neighborhood of Paris until 18 years old.  Who was then accepted to a university in the fanciest part of Paris and ultimately received his MBA from Columbia Business School and works as an executive for a global corporation.

That gives me a unique perspective on challenges people of color face when negotiating.



Greatly appreciating your blog. Brave stuff! May I quote you? “Money is a terrible master, but an amazing servant”


Love the vulnerability you are sharing in support of a greater cause.
