Pamela Meyer holds an MBA from Harvard, an MA in Public Policy from Claremont Graduate School, and is a Certified Fraud Examiner. She has extensive training in the use of visual cues and psychology to detect deception and is one of the country’s leading experts on the science of deception. Meyer’s mission is to help people become more accurate at finding the truth. Her meticulously researched book, Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception, has become a bestseller, and her riveting TED Talk called “How to Spot a Liar” has been viewed by millions and translated into over 40 languages.
The lie detection skills Meyer has mastered reveal the deception epidemic plaguing our society. Studies show that you encounter an average of 10–200 lies per day. As a result, Meyer believes that everything a CIA operative knows about deception, you should know, too. Used by business executives to identify the truth in high-stakes situations, the techniques she teaches are pertinent to managers, investment professionals, human resources specialists, lawyers, insurance professionals, and corporate officers that must make hard decisions based on critical facts. After a session with Meyer, you’ll be armed with sophisticated tools for better negotiating, selling, protecting, and interviewing.
In her keynote speeches, Meyer provides her audience with detailed scientific findings on which personality types lie, how deception is expressed in e-mail, on the phone, and in person, and how to detect deception through body language. She also teaches statement analysis, interviewing techniques, interrogation, and negotiation strategy, using rich, entertaining real-life examples. She is known for keeping her audience laughing while they learn, and she presents a path towards trust that emphasizes integrity, maturity, and honesty.
She was previously an executive for over 20 years in the media business, starting several successful ventures and working as a senior executive at National Geographic, Vestron, and Electronic Arts. Meyer and her team work closely with business executives to offer a blend of hard skills training, business savvy, and strategic insight.
She is a frequent speaker at security and management conferences. Her work has been featured in Bloomberg Businessweek, New York Post, Forbes.com, Portfolio.com, Harvard Business Review, the Wall Street Journal, and The Atlantic.
|I train audiences to detect emotional states, to ask hard questions at the right time and to get to the truth.|
|What do you want people to learn/take away from your presentations?|
|I want people to walk away with an entirely different view of how to read others. This is not just about deception. I train audiences to detect emotional states, to ask hard questions at the right time and to get to the truth. I try to leave them laughing, but inspired to make the world a more honest place.|
|What kind of special prep work do you do prior to an event? How do you prepare for your speaking engagements?|
| I work closely with every client and tailor the talk to the audience. I ask a lot of questions about the audience, their business, their concerns, their short and long-term goals, their biggest challenges, their most significant interests. Then I go back to our offices and work hard to find material that will be engaging, educational and totally entertaining.
I also do a lot of research about the client, review the other speakers who will be presenting at the event and incorporate the overall messaging of the gathering. I try hard to make sure I have material that speaks not only to the main message, but also to the subtle needs of the audience that might be unspoken.
|My message has helped and can help anyone who is in a position of hiring and having to make tough calls on candidates or who is negotiating with hard-to-read partners, procurement officers or those that manage procurement budgets.|
|What types of audiences would most benefit from your message?|
| I have worked with a wide range of audiences. I’ve worked with closed door board retreats, large audiences of thousands, middle managers and senior managers. My message has helped and can help anyone who is in a position of hiring and having to make tough calls on candidates or who is negotiating with hard-to-read partners, procurement officers or those that manage procurement budgets.
I’ve helped information security executives who are concerned with inside threats or fraud, insurance or legal professionals, financial executives and marketers concerned with brand image and positioning for the new era. And I usually see the spouses sneaking in, too, because my material doesn’t just work at the office!
|How much do case studies, personal stories and/or humor factor into your keynote speech content?|
|In a 50 minute talk I will usually weave in 10-20 case studies, stories, and videos. I love to use funny videos and stories to make my points, and it’s revelatory for audiences to look at a video at the beginning of a talk and not be able to spot the signs of deception—and then watch the same video 50 minutes later and see them pop off the screen.|
"Pamela Meyer was our keynote speaker at AGA’s Sixth Annual Internal Control & Fraud Conference. She was the perfect speaker, because her topic of uncovering human deception by watching for signals the body makes involuntarily, resonated perfectly with our audience of over 500 government auditors and fraud specialists. Everyone left with priceless skills previously only available to CIA operatives and those trained in the art of interrogation. Pamela is a completely dynamic speaker with incredible stage presence and outstanding visual aids. She was a pleasure to work with, and even allowed extra time to rehearse with our production company a day prior to her presentation, making sure it was flawless. She received 96% good to excellent rating from our attendees, which proved Ms. Meyer was the correct choice to speak at our conference. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her."

Studies show we are lied to up to 20 times a day. Leaders are lied to more often than that, and often in high stakes situations.

From Workplace to Playspace: Innovating, Learning and Changing Through Dynamic Engagement
From Workplace to Playspace is about visionary, courageous, innovative, and persistent organizations that challenge long-held preconceptions about the incompatibility of workplace and playspace. Each day organizations across industries and with wide-ranging missions are discovering that playspace is the space they can and must create every day at work if they are to think creatively, question old assumptions, respond effectively to the unexpected, and engage all to work at the top of their talent. Filled with case examples from such organizations as Learning Curve International, Google, Chicago Public Schools, Umpqua Bank, and Threadless, the author provides both the conceptual framework and the principles to guide practitioners to create playspace for innovating, learning and changing in their organizations.
Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception
People--friends, family members, work colleagues, salespeople--lie to us all the time. Daily, hourly, constantly. None of us is immune, and all of us are victims. According to studies by several different researchers, most of us encounter nearly 200 lies a day. Now there’s something we can do about it. Liespotting links three disciplines--facial recognition training, interrogation training, and a comprehensive survey of research in the field--into a specialized body of information developed specifically to help business leaders detect deception and get the information they need to successfully conduct their most important interactions and transactions. Some of the nation′s leading business executives have learned to use these methods to root out lies in high stakes situations. Liespotting for the first time brings years of knowledge--previously found only in the intelligence community, police training academies, and universities--into the corporate boardroom, the manager′s meeting, the job interview, the legal proceeding, and the deal negotiation.
