Corporate Investigation & Interviewing Skills Workshop

30 and 31 January 2018

You are invited to a two-day practical corporate investigation and interviewing skills workshop. Designed for a small group of people, the workshop utilises a case study to replicate, as close as is possible, a real life internal corporate investigation.

The workshop includes two days of training, fact gathering and practical activities including mock interviews with reporters, witnesses and the subject of the allegations.

In addition, there will be an element of pre-workshop preparation where you will be required to study investigation good practice guidance and complete a series of activities. A workbook will be sent to you in advance.

During the two-day workshop you will undertake the following:

  • Assess the allegations including interviewing the reporter of the issues and reviewing the information provided
  • Prepare an investigation plan
  • Review supporting documentation
  • Interview a witness
  • Reconsider your investigation plan and review additional information
  • Interview the subject of the allegations
  • Analyse what facts you gathered and identify any gaps
  • Identify process weaknesses
  • Prepare a verbal report of findings and present the report to management

The workshop will be conducted by Neil Fletcher, Head of Global Corporate Investigations at Mazars and Nicole McLaughlin, a Senior Manager in Mazars’ Forensics Investigation team. Between them, Neil and Nicole have more than 50 years’ experience conducting investigations for a range of clients in both the public and private sectors across the globe.
