Communicating the results of fraud investigations effectively is a challenging but critical skill. Whether writing the investigation report or preparing to give oral evidence in court, you may struggle with the key step of taking the often technical information and communicating such information in a way that doesn’t cause your audience to feel confused, bored, skeptical or, worst of all, sleepy. This session will provide practical suggestions on what to consider before “putting hands to keyboard” or heading to the podium or witness stand. Using case examples, guidance will also be provided on report structure and common writing habits which hamper comprehension and often distract readers or listeners.
