Guthrie Robert’s work experience (academic credentials) is in the areas of economics (B.A. Honours, Economics), business (M.B.A.), law (L.L.B.) and mediation (Certificate in Mediation) over thirty years. Most of this work was in areas where business and law intersect: government affairs, strategic planning, mergers and acquisitions, and mediation. A common thread through all these areas was the use of negotiation skills.
