"I have had the pleasure of working closely with Roar in the preparation and implementation of the lectures in conflict management at the Faculty of Law, UiO. He is an energy donor, inspiring and trusting partner. Besides, a skilled educator and these qualities also make him an effective and good mediator and negotiator."

"What differentiates a good mentor from a regular mentor is attention to detail. With the feedback, I received from Roar Waegger I was able to actively work on the details and improve the positive points of my performance as a mediator. I am sure I will take these insights with me throughout my career! In addition, I would like to highlight the attention and didactics employed in each comment from him! Excellent work! Thank you very much!"

"­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Roar’s sparring sessions and his tutorial on Negotiating with the Brain in MIND were incredibly helpful to our competition. Among other things, Roar taught us how to process and leverage the other party’s emotions, to gather information most useful to determining the interests of the other party. He taught us how to steer the negotiation productively when the other party was not responsive, responsive but angry or emotional, and barraging us with questions while answering none of our own questions. I enthusiastically and wholeheartedly recommend his programme!"

"Roar is one of the most helpful and knowledgeable people I have ever come across in the field of Alternative Dispute Resolution. He was very elaborate with his feedback to the round he judged for my team and was kind enough to take out time from his schedule to grace us with a sparring session. He gave us numerous tips throughout the session in addition to accommodating multiple questions from us. Owing to his help, we were able to perform even better and ultimately win International Investor-State Mediation Competition, Colombo, the world’s first ever mediation competition on Investor-State Dispute Resolution."


Director of Sales - Media Group

"One of the most remarkable outcomes of the workshop has been the significant increase in our sales results, by nearly 40%, which serves as proof of the effectiveness of the techniques and strategies we learned. With our new framework, the sales team now approaches each negotiation with greater clarity and purpose. We are better equipped to understand our customers' needs and to effectively communicate our proposals."
