220 Attend 5th Annual Conference
Two hundred twenty workplace investigators from nineteen US states, the District of Columbia, and Canada attended AWI's 5th annual conference November 13-15, 2014 in Walnut Creek, California. The keynote address was given by Michael Floyd, former CIA agent and co-author of the New York Times bestseller, Spy the Lie. Mr. Floyd used videos of actual witness interviews to demonstrate his objective method of detecting deception using verbal and visual indicators.
Conference participants gave Mr. Floyd's presentation rave reviews, and Mr. Floyd was also impressed with AWI. "Clearly, you are the pioneers and the leaders in your industry," he wrote in a follow-up email. Other topics covered at the conference included trends and updates, ethics, behavioral analysis, investigative strategy, interviewing, handling difficult situations, avoiding common mistakes, determining credibility, and report writing.
AWI's mission is to promote and enhance the quality of impartial workplace investigations. It was founded in 2009 with 100 charter members in California, and currently has 545 members in 34 US states, Puerto Rico, Canada, Australia, and Bulgaria. Its other offerings include training institutes, seminars, webinars, and a peer-reviewed professional journal.
