IoD - Winter Event 2015

What's it about?

IoD West Midlands Breakfast in Association with Higgs & Sons will be hosting the below seminar on Tuesday 27 January 2015 for members and non members of the IoD.

Speaker:
Mike Drayton of Opus Performance

Topic:
Lying and deception costs businesses millions of pounds a year. Leaders and managers are often placed in situations where spotting lies and deceit is important, for example: in interviews, negotiations and in sale situations.

This talk uses the latest research from the behavioural and psychological sciences to explore the question: is it possible to spot lies? Mike Drayton uses video clips, examples from literature and audience participation to inform, inspire and entertain.

Dr Mike Drayton is an organisational development consultant, a clinical psychologist and an expert in negotiation. His clients include: Sony, VW and Cathay Pacific Airways. Mike has a Doctorate in Psychology from the University of Birmingham and a degree in Social Psychology from LSE. He is also a graduate of the Oxford Programme on Negotiation (Säid Business School, University of Oxford). Mike lectures regularly at the University of Birmingham and the University of Warwick.

The talk will be fun, interactive, effective and engaging. All the material used is based on sound scientific research that has been published in peer-reviewed academic journals.
