Lead with Confidence

Negotiate with Ease

Communicate with Impact

Distrust poisons relationships, retention, and results. Close the trust gap using field-tested and scientific best practices. 

You have 50 milliseconds to make an impression on people who already have their guard up. Trust is at an all-time low, and people are looking for a reason to say no to you. 

Communicating trust depends on what you say and how you say it. That’s something Pamela learned working over twenty years in the criminal justice system: first as an undercover drug cop and later as a prosecuting attorney. 

Learn the secret second language reserved for communication experts and law enforcement to close the trust gap in your teams and organizations today.

Pamela has a unique background having worked deep undercover for years in the drug world, making hundreds of drug buys from street level to multiple six-figure buys. Couple that with her career as a federal prosecutor, and you have an intriguing and educated badass.

Crack the Code on Deception

The ability to read people can make or break deals, negotiations, and relationships. Learn how to decode the clues of deception so you can make better decisions about who to hire, fire, and partner with. Participants will learn how to crack the code on deception using real-world techniques to spot lies and assess people immediately.

Forget about what you’ve learned from watching police and lie detection dramas on TV because those equip you to detect deception as much as a medical drama equips you to perform surgery.

During this one-of-a-kind keynote or workshop led by former undercover police officer and federal prosecutor Pamela Barnum, participants will learn techniques used by real law enforcement and federal agencies to detect deception, build rapport, and establish trust.

Learning Objectives

 Participants will learn how to:

  • Tell the difference between anxiety and deception so they can get to the truth faster and more accurately, ensuring accuracy and avoid wasting time and money.
  • Increase self-awareness in order to manage and access personal bias. This is diversity training with real and measurable results.
  • Identify nonverbal cues for deception. Learn how to filter out what’s really being said so you can make informed decisions.
Control Perception

Research shows that your credibility, confidence, likability, and trustworthiness are evaluated within seconds. That means that even if you’ve rehearsed your words perfectly, and you say all the right things, if your body language isn’t in alignment with what you say; you lose.

Our brains react to nonverbal messages before anything else. That’s how we’re wired.

The impact of your nonverbal communication lies in the perception of what others think. People make an emotional decision about what they see, and it takes a long time, and a lot of evidence to change their minds. By then, the damage is done.

Understand and interpret the nonverbal signs you’re communicating as well as the signs others are sharing so you can build rapport and develop trust with anyone.

Learning Objectives

Participants will learn how to:

  • Decipher body language clearly and accurately using an Agenda FilterTM
  • Use insider techniques used by law enforcement to build rapport quickly and easily with anyone, even in challenging environments.
  • Express empathy and confidence with their body language, turning first impressions into winning impressions.
