Conducting an interview of a witness or a person of interest in connection with a regulatory offence is a skill that is learned and honed over time. A good interview is not just about the questions you ask. In order to conduct a procedurally fair interview, it is important to understand the several separate components of an interview and how they work together to achieve a better interview.
This masterclass is designed to highlight and demonstrate the essential components that must be known by those looking to undertake interviews for regulatory matters and how those components are dependent upon each other for success. Join our expert facilitator Peter Moroney for an in-depth masterclass underpinned with interactive activities for participants to test their knowledge learned from the course.
