Speaker Topic: Get More Truth - Spot More Deception - Trips, Traps and Awareness!

The majority of lies that people tell daily are not designed to hurt or deceive. They are often branded as ‘white lies’ and are told, mostly without a second thought, to keep the peace, to maintain a flow of conversation or to wriggle out of something awkward or uncomfortable.

But, what about the lies and deception that can lead you to make decisions that you would otherwise not have made if you were armed with the truth? If you better understand the science of truth and lies you can immediately notice things that other people miss, giving you the power to take the right action and make better decisions.

This engaging seminar will provide tips and techniques designed to encourage more truth when it matters most and spot signs of deception early. By exploring some of the myths about truth and lies, you will be better equipped to bring more truth into your personal and professional life and avoid the negative impact of deception.

This short seminar will discuss:

*Common traps that can stand in the way of getting the truth and spotting harmful  deception

 *Tips to improve awareness of factors that contribute to getting the information required
