Failure to conduct investigative interviews properly can lead to disaster, for the organisation, the investigator, witnesses and often the subject of the inquiry. It does not matter whether you are a professional or a manager who find themselves temporarily delegated with the role, you will be required to act legally, ethically, fairly and without bias. Due to lack of understanding, good sound evidence can be rendered inadmissible or unreliable. In a public hearing, in house inquiry, court or a tribunal the persons involved can find their own credibility destroyed in what can sometimes be a humiliating experience. Years of experience in criminal/civil courts and tribunals have equipped instructors to teach you in a practical way the issues that need to be dealt with professionally.
