Watch a Sample Video

Former U.S. Department of Justice attorney Michael Johnson leads three webinars that challenge common beliefs about how to interview witnesses and spot deception in internal investigations. You will:

  • Learn about scientifically validated investigative techniques by examining videos, transcripts and case studies of real-life investigations
  • Leave the sessions more confident in your ability to interview witnesses and determine who is telling the truth

Attend live and/or recorded versions of the webinars described below, which past attendees have described as “eye-opening,” “engaging,” and “riveting.” You can buy one, two, or all three webinars in this series. If you buy all three webinars, the price will be discounted to $447 ($90 discount).
