EMERGING TRENDS IMPACTING INVESTIGATIVE INTERVIEWINGwith SCOTT PORTER, CPA, CA, DIFA, CFF
Senior Investigator of Professional Conduct
Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario
The world of investigative interviewing and the methods taught to investigative interviewers are at a critical crossroads. Courts are increasingly questioning traditional interview approaches, which tend to rely on deception detection methodology and are directed toward eliciting admissions and confessions. This session will discuss emerging trends impacting investigative interviewing, advancing methods supported by science (i.e., PEACE, Motivational Interviewing) which are gaining traction all over the world. Participants will benefit from watching compelling real-life interview clips from both well executed and poorly executed interviews.
Scott Porter has been a Senior Investigator at CPA Ontario for the past 13 years, where he conducts numerous interviews with CPAs alleged to have committed professional misconduct (e.g. fraud). Previously, Porter served as a manager with PriceWaterhouseCoopers' forensic accounting group. Porter has done multiple presentations to investigators across North America on conducting ethical, legal and effective interviews. He has also written published materials and has been featured in a podcast.
