One of the negotiation experts in Chinese-speaking world, Professor Liu has an unparalleled expertise on the art of warfare and its application to negotiation, which is recognized by his peers.
Professor of Political Science at Soochow University (Taipei, Taiwan), he also gives lectures in EMBA programs at other universities in Taiwan and China.
Founder of Harmonious Negotiation (1990, Taipei), he has been called upon as trainer and advisor throughout the Asia-Pacific: for various ministries in Taiwan and for numerous multinationals in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore.
Professor Liu has published about 20 books (in Chinese), most of them deal with negotiation, particularly with respect to strategic and tactical aspects, the Chinese negotiation style and communication.
He shares with trainees a series of negotiating techniques and tactics developed by himself, particularly by drawing on his in-depth knowledge of events and figures in the history of East Asia (China, Japan, Korea, Mongol Empire).
He is regularly invited by Taiwanese media to share his observations and analysis on current issues in international relations and geopolitics.
He obtained his PhD in International Relations from the University of Virginia (USA).
A linguist by training, she has developed a keen interest in international negotiation, where language and communication play essential roles.
In order to work in these two fields that she is passionate about, she offers her competences in semantics and communication, combined with her experiences as a business interpreter (Chinese / French / English) and her dual culture.
While engaged in the field, she pursues her research activities which revolve around the following themes.
> The way people communicate, and how it implies the interpretation and perception of the context (especially in an international negotiation)
> The aspects related to the interaction of the interlocutors (to mention only the persuasive approach and the images of interlocutors).
> The influence of culture: on how people communicate, as well as on the interaction between the interlocutors.
She is also interested in how the language-culture system may frame modes of thought and action.
A Taiwanese living in France for more than 15 years, she now divides her time between Paris and Taipei.
She obtained her PhD in Language Sciences in March 2018 at the EHESS in Paris (School of Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences).
