Pamela Barnum

Trust Strategist and Body Language Expert: Former Undercover Police Officer & Federal Prosecuting Attorney 

Topic:  3D Interview Techniques

Imagine what it would be like to live as a different person with a different name, identity, and background. Working for months at a time with drug dealers and criminals, and your success depended on establishing trust.

That’s precisely what Pamela Barnum did for years working undercover in the Drug Enforcement Section. She learned real-world techniques for building trust and interpreting nonverbal communication (body language).

Today, she shares her expertise with others, teaching them invaluable communication skills that increase trust, improve relationships, and decode nonverbal cues.

Pamela has been a featured trust strategist and nonverbal communication expert, contributing to print media, radio, and television news programs in Canada and the United States.

Her TEDx Talk, “What Drug Dealers Taught Me About Trust,” was viewed more than 400,000 times in the first year and continues to attract praise and interest from around the world. Her 2022 TEDx talk, "How Empathy Empowered an Undercover Cop," garnered critical acclaim for her candor and insight.
