Pamela Meyer
Certified Fraud Examiner, Lie-Detection Expert

Studies show that most of us encounter up to 200 lies a day, and strangers lie to each other about three times within the first 10 minutes of meeting. Pamela Meyer set out on a several-year journey to research and combat the deception epidemic in her daily life, and her astonishing resulting TED Global Talk, “How to Spot a Liar”, has since drawn over a million views.

A graduate of Harvard’s MBA program, CEO and founder of the successful business incubation and development firm Simpatico Networks, Pamela Meyer was inspired by a scientific presentation on the behaviors of deceptive people and shocked that the huge body of research on deception had not reached the business world. The author of the bestselling Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception, Pamela has made it her mission to help people become more accurate at getting to the truth. She believes that—with our increasing lack of face-to-face interaction, and the deception we have come to expect from everyone, from politicians to television networks—everything a CIA operative knows about deception should be familiar to you too, and you too can go from lie spotting to truth-seeking and finally, building trust. The techniques Pamela teaches are pertinent to any business executive expected to identify the truth in high-stakes situations, and in any corporate environment where the truth is an essential part of business—managers, lawyers, and investment, insurance, and medical professionals can all benefit from Meyer’s tools for better buying, protecting, interviewing, and negotiating.

Through her private consulting firm, Pamela Meyer trains corporate executives to read facial micro-expressions and teaches advanced interrogation techniques, body language analysis, and behavior elicitation techniques. She is a Certified Fraud Examiner and also holds an MA in Public Policy from Claremont Graduate School. Her non-stop presentations combine extensive training and research with the soft skills and business acumen that keep them interactive and packed with valuable takeaways for you and your organization.
