Investing is a people business; but sadly, people lie. Most investment professionals think that the correct way to deal with this problem is to trust their instincts, or to examine body language. These are pan cultural fictions that do not work. After exhaustive testing, science concludes that people are only able to discern lies 54% of the time, with trained professionals shockingly scoring even lower. But there are techniques that do work. In this workshop learn about two deception detection techniques that work: S.U.E., at 88% accuracy, and D.A.T.A., with 87.5% accuracy.
As a unique opportunity, there will be a live competition for all who register: we will be giving you the chance to submit your reports, briefings and transcripts for live testing during the webinar. Up to 5 documents will be chosen and results will be shared live during the show, with full transparency!
