Pamela Meyer’s mission is to help people get to the truth. Extensively trained in the use of visual cues and psychology to detect deception, Meyer teaches audiences how to advance from lie-spotting to truth-seeking to trust-building.

Her riveting TED Talk, How to Spot a Liar, has been viewed over 22 million times, making it one of the 15 most popular TED talks of all time, while her book, Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception, was a bestseller. Combining her unique understanding of deception with her honed business acumen, Meyer provides audiences with lessons and takeaways that can be immediately put to use.

Studies show that people encounter an average of 10-200 lies per day. As a result, Pamela Meyer believes that everything a CIA operative knows about deception, everyone else should know, too. Delving into detailed scientific findings on which personality types lie, how deception is expressed in e-mail, on the phone, and in person, and how to detect deception through body language, Meyer also explains statement analysis, interviewing techniques, and interrogation and negotiation strategy, using rich, entertaining real-life examples. She is known for keeping her audience laughing while they learn, and presents a path toward trust that emphasizes integrity, maturity, and honesty.

She holds an MBA from Harvard, an MA in Public Policy from Claremont Graduate School, and is a Certified Fraud Examiner. She was previously a media executive with over 20 years in management at Prodigy, National Geographic Television, Vestron, and Electronic Arts. She has also started several successful Internet ventures, under the Simpatico Networks banner.

Pamela Meyer was recently top-ranked on Business Insider‘s list of “Smart thinkers everyone should Follow on Twitter”. She has been featured in publications such as The Harvard Business Review, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, and Forbes.
