The Art of Interviewing & Statement Taking - Webinar (EST)


ON [Map]
Date and Time: February 07, 2023 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

An interview, at its core, is a search for answers. What happened? How did it happen? Where? When? Who was involved? The answers to these questions can help reveal important details related to an accident or criminal act, but the amount of information you get, and quality of that information, can vary greatly based on the skill of the interviewer. 

This presentation will focus on the right questions to ask, how to read people’s body language, and give some insight into conducting a successful interview, whether it’s taking a claim report, investigating a crime scene, or updating an insurance portfolio. 

The session  will target the following areas: 

  • What is an Interview? 

  • How makes an interview successful? 

  • What is a Cognitive Interview? 

  • Why is it important to build a rapport?  

  • Why is eye contact important? 

  • How can body language be useful? 

Who should attend?
This session will provide useful information for a range of industry professionals including brokers, underwriters, and adjusters.
