Investigative Interviewing: Focus on Financial Crime
21-22 January 2020
08:00 - 17:00
Castille, Casa Leone, Floriana

Event Overview

Investigative Interviewing is a core skill in any investigation context. The highest standards need to be upheld when conducting interviews of persons suspected of financial crime to any level, and /or professional misconduct. Equally, when interviewing witnesses and 'whistle blowers' to ensure objectivity and justice. Wrongful approaches to interviewing can and do cause serious implications! Therefore this course is especially designed to overcome common hurdles in interviewing and engage precisely with the attitudes, bluff tactics, and personal nuances of 'financial criminals'.

  • Ian Ross is a former UK police officer, now a global compliance and risk specialist. As an Accredited investigative interviewing trainer with over 30 years applicable experience, Ian has delivered focused training in interviewing skills to banks, major insurers, regulators, multi-national corporate entities, national police forces and the military.

Also supporting organisations in South America with interview training.
