Pamela Meyer holds an MBA from Harvard, an MA in public policy from Claremont Graduate School, and is a certified fraud examiner. She has extensive training in the use of visual clues and psychology to detect deception.
Meyer says her mission is to help people become more accurate at finding the truth. In her bestselling book, Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception, Meyer teaches how to go from lie-spotting to truth-seeking to trust-building.
Studies show that you encounter an average of 10-200 lies per day. As a result, Meyer believes that everything a CIA operative knows about deception, should be known by all of us. At her private consulting firm, she trains corporate executives on facial microexpression reading, advanced interrogation techniques, body language analysis, and behavior elicitation techniques.
In her multi-media presentation, Meyer provides her audience with detailed scientific findings on which personality types lie, how deception is expressed in e-mail, on the phone, and in person, and how to detect deception through body language. Audiences also learn about statement analysis, interviewing techniques, and interrogation, and about how negotiations can gain the upper hand and close deals that last, by mastering deception detection techniques.
