Carrie will be teaching her workshop, "Don't LIE to me," a one-day trainng in deception:

So often we have wondered if someone was being completely honest with us. Whether it
was someone seeking a job, negotiating with others, talking with your teenager, or a
someone talking on the television or telephone. To understand deception provides you with
control over a situation. It sends up the warning bells that tell you to be careful. We
don't like to be lied to and we rarely benefit from the deception.

art in the works—offering more training, more classes, to more participants than any other

Day 2 - May 9, 2019 - All day (8:00am - 4:30pm)

Join us for the second day of trainng as the ACFE will lend their knowledge to us in an aspect of our job that's often overlooked until the last minute: Testifying. From the ACFE:

Establish yourself as a consummate courtroom professional. Learn how to testify effectively on direct and cross-examination, basic courtroom procedures, and most important, tricks for surviving on the witness stand.

Improve your techniques on how to offer testimony about damages and restitution while learning to know when to draw the line between aggressive testimony and improper advocacy. Walk away with more effective report writing skills and explore the different types of evidence and legal remedies in this 1-day, instructor-led course.

Blocks of Instruction:

Techniques for Effective Testimony on Direct Examination
Direct testimony is your opportunity to shine. In this session, you'll discuss techniques to make the most of it through preparation, and the use of clear testimony and effective demonstrative tools.

Surviving Cross-Examination
You feel good about your testimony under direct examination, in part because counsel was on your side. However, during cross examination you are fair game by the opposing counsel. In this session, you will prepare by learning opposing strategy and how to survive leading questions and tricky cross examination techniques.

Participation in Discovery Requests and Depositions
Most fraud cases are determined before they ever get to the courthouse in the "paper war" of discovery and the "informal" testimony at depositions. This process is full of technicalities and pitfalls for any unprepared participant or witness. This session discusses your role and requirements in this phase of the fraud case.

Case Studies: What Went Wrong and How to Make it Right
The session will cover examples of litigation where expert witnesses failed, and will also present a real case and examination report to walk attendees through the process of preparing for testimony.

Ethical Issues for Experts and Other Witnesses
Your credibility, reputation, and professional competence are at stake in every professional engagement. Where is the line between aggressive testimony and improper advocacy? How do you avoid risks of becoming involved in questionable or even illegal conduct? What circumstances can give rise to personal liability? In this closing session, you'll discuss ethical issues that you may face in a fraud examination – and more importantly, solutions.
