Certified Fraud Examiner and Best-Selling Author of LieSpotting
Successful M&A deal-making depends on discerning fact from fiction throughout every step of the process – and the ability to develop trust quicky with new partners.
ACG is excited to have Pamela Meyer as our Keynote speaker on Tuesday, offering strategies and techniques on how to:
- Uncover deception – on the phone, in email, and in person
- Get the upper hand in buying, negotiating, protecting, and interviewing
- Go from lie-spotting to truth-seeking to trust-building
Pamela Meyer is an Expert on Trust & Deception; Author of the book Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception and has the #13 most-watched TED Talk – “How to Spot a Liar.”
The stunning popularity of Pamela’s TED talk and book is a solid testimony to the relevance and timeliness of her valuable work. There’s a deception epidemic. And it’s gotten worse. Businesses lose an estimated 7% of annual revenue to fraud each year.
Deception is serious business. According to studies by several different researchers, most of us encounter nearly 200 lies a day. It happens in person, on the phone, in email. It happens when buying, negotiating, interviewing, and interacting with colleagues, vendors, customers, friends, family, and others. In this environment it’s important to be equipped with the skills to protect yourself in your daily business and personal encounters.
Pamela brings years of knowledge – previously found only in the intelligence community, police training academies, and universities – to the effort to uncover the truth and build trust. She synthesizes her C-Suite business savvy with the critical deception detection skills she’s accumulated: advanced interviewing and interrogation techniques; facial micro-expression reading; body language interpretation; statement analysis; facial action coding systems; and behavior elicitation techniques. These techniques were developed by our national espionage, intelligence, security and law enforcement agencies over the last 75 years. They were refined by the top psychologists and psychiatrists at leading American research universities and think tanks. The result is a specialized body of information developed specifically to help business executives, managers, investment professionals, human resources specialists, lawyers, insurance professionals, corporate officers, and others detect deception and get the information they need to successfully conduct their most important interactions/transactions and build trust.
Pamela is founder and CEO of Calibrate, in Washington, D.C., which helps businesses root out lying, cut down on fraud and detect inside threats. Pamela and her team work closely with business executives to offer a blend of hard skills training, business savvy and strategic insight.
