Some people say it is often better to be lucky than good. My opinion is, let's leave that to golf and NOT when conducting investigative interviews or criminal interrogations! A true professional, someone who needs to gather reliable facts and information from other people, will prepare, train and hone their skills throughout their careers. In my mind, and in the mind of those with the same philosophy of training, "luck" favors people who have invested the time and money in themselves, who have prepared and who have trained and who have honed their skills. Another thing I hear often is that you can't mix business with pleasure. Again, I disagree. The business of training is a serious thing. However, if you engage the right people in the right environment you can make the training not only valuable and effective, but also FUN! Case in point is The Lie Boat training cruise which has 18 hours of intense training with like-minded professionals on a cruise ship, which in 2016 is docking on the Island of Bermuda! Now THAT is combining business with pleasure. I hope to see you improving and honing your skills on board The Lie Boat in 2016!
