Imagine what it would be like to live as a different person with a different name, identity, and background. For months, you live with a false identity, and your success depends on building trust and detecting deception with some of the most dangerous people imaginable. That’s precisely what Pamela Barnum did for years while working undercover in the Drug Enforcement Section. She learned real-world techniques for building trust and interpreting body language.

When Pamela graduated from law school, she left policing and accepted a position as a federal prosecuting attorney. She spent countless hours in the courtroom, perfecting her proficiency as a trust strategist and body language expert.

Following a successful 20-year career in the criminal justice system, Pamela studied corporate negotiations in graduate school. Now, she shares her expertise with others, teaching them how to improve their communication skills to increase trust inside corporations, associations, and law enforcement agencies. She learned quickly how to separate fact from fiction and truth from falsehood.

As a nonverbal communication expert and trust strategist, Pamela delivers techniques once thought of as a “secret second language” participants can begin using immediately.

Take decades of experience in deep undercover work in narcotics and a successful legal career, and you get real-world strategies that help attendees crack the code on trust, improve professional relationships and increase effectiveness using proven field-tested techniques.

Pamela shares her experience, research, and expertise with humor, candor, and energy, blending actionable strategies with memorable stories.

She is also a featured expert and contributor in print media, radio, and television news programs in Canada and the United States. In addition, she has appeared in person before live and virtual audiences ranging from 50 - 12,000.

3D Negotiation Strategies that Win

More than fifty percent of our communication is nonverbal; we miss more than half of the conversation when we fail to pay attention. Learn the secret second language reserved for communication experts and law enforcement to communicate confidence, elevate influence, and improve negotiation outcomes.

Display calm confidence in every situation. Learn when to move toward, not away from, conflict and when silence is the most effective negotiating tactic.

Decode nonverbal cues with certainty. Understand what is being said, regardless of the words used.

Detect deception with greater accuracy using science-backed techniques. Confidently assess verbal and nonverbal misrepresentation indicators, bluffing, and lies in real-time.

Prepare for an Uncertain Future

Trust is in crisis, and earning trust has never been more imperative than it is now. Trust solves risk problems, improves culture, and increases innovation to prepare for an uncertain future; without trust, there is no transaction.

Create a culture of TRUST with:
* Transparent communication. Use cues to establish stability and security in times of uncertainty without overcommunicating or micromanaging.
* Respect for self and others. Uncertainty and fear lead to an Us vs. Them culture, resulting in reduced productivity, decreased profits, and reputational damage. Demonstrate self-respect and appreciation for others with more than words.
* Undercover tactics anyone can use to increase rapport and decrease conflict anywhere, anytime.
* Sincere and authentic nonverbal cues. Go beyond body language and active listening techniques and discover how to consistently communicate trust with more than words. Take ownership while exercising tact and diplomacy in challenging situations. Learn how to deliver bad news and provide critical feedback in a way that strengthens your reputation and repairs relationships.

The Superpower for Leaders

Tactical Influence is vital to gaining trust, aligning efforts to pursue goals, inspiring positive change, and significantly increasing revenue. Using proven LIFE skills to enhance essential outcomes, learn how to:

Leverage talent with intentional communication cues for increased collaboration and quicker decisions.

Inspire intrigue. Uncover how to increase productivity, creativity, and happiness with the power of curiosity and when best to utilize it.

Fearlessly communicate confidence and maintain a strong executive presence in times of uncertainty. Use fear and doubt to supercharge insight and eliminate imposter syndrome.

Empower with empathy. High-empathy-based environments have performance levels three times higher than low-empathy environments. Discover the often-overlooked strategy that builds a stronger, more productive, and more engaged culture.
