Nation's Best Known Expert on Lying
Studies show that most of us encounter up to 200 lies a day, and strangers lie to each other about three times within the first 10 minutes of meeting. Pamela Meyer set out on a several-year journey to research and combat the deception epidemic in her daily life, and her astonishing resulting TED Global Talk, “How to Spot a Liar”, has since drawn over a million views. A graduate of Harvard’s MBA program, CEO and founder of the successful business incubation and development firm Simpatico Networks, Pamela Meyer was inspired by a scientific presentation on the behaviors of deceptive people, and shocked that the huge body of research on deception had not reached the business world. The author of the bestselling Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception, Meyer has made it her mission to help people become more accurate at getting to the truth. She believes that—with our increasing lack face-to-face interaction, and the deception we have come to expect from everyone, from politicians to television networks—everything a CIA operative knows about deception should be familiar to you too, and you too can go from liespotting to truth seeking and finally, building trust.
