Pamela Barnum Biography

Imagine what it would be like to live as a different person with a different name, identity, and background. For months at a time, you’re living 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 working undercover in the Drug Enforcement Section. She learned real-world techniques for building trust and interpreting body language.

When Barnum 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, Barnum 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.

As a body language expert and trust strategist, Barnum delivers techniques once thought of like a “secret second language” that participants can begin using immediately.

Take decades of experience, including working deep undercover in narcotics, followed by a rewarding legal career, and you get real-world strategies that help participants crack the code on trust and improve professional relationships using proven field-tested techniques.

Barnum 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. She has appeared in person in front of audiences ranging from 50 - 12,000 and on countless virtual stages.

Pamela Barnum Speaking Topics

  • OVERCOME THE CONFIDENCE GAP

    A growing body of evidence shows that a lack of confidence is devastating to our success. It turns out that confidence is equally as important as competence when it comes to getting ahead professionally. The problem is that demonstrating less self-assurance is what keeps us from achieving at the highest levels.

    Participants will learn:

    • Nonverbal techniques to acquire confidence and overcome the "imposter syndrome" that is holding you back.
    • How men and women negotiate differently, and strategies that pull from the strengths of both.
    • The "asking advantage" and how to increase effectiveness with body language.

    Although this content primarily focuses on women in leadership positions, it is instructive for anyone aspiring to be a more influential and effective leader.

  • 3D NEGOTIATION TECHNIQUES FOR SUCCESS: Display, Decode, Detect

    Learn the secret second language that's been reserved for communication experts and law enforcement.

    Using techniques developed as an undercover police officer and federal prosecuting attorney, Pamela will teach you and your organization how to use and interpret body language to negotiate better deals, improve important relationships, and build trust quickly and effectively.

    This intriguing session encourages audience participation, provides strategic action steps, and is a lot of fun for everyone in attendance!

    You will receive practical tools that can be used immediately to:

    • Display trustworthiness and demonstrate that you're acting in good faith, to improve and regulate how you are perceived by others.
    • Decode nonverbal cues that provide reliable feedback on how the other person is really feeling - regardless of what they are saying.
    • Detect deception with a greater degree of accuracy using verbal and nonverbal techniques so you can respond strategically, influencing behavior.

  • 3D TRUST in a 2D WORLD: Innovative Approaches to Enhance Trust Virtually

    Within milliseconds, people judge your confidence, competence, and credibility. Virtual events and meetings enhance the subtle nuances that either enhance, or destroy your trustworthiness.

    Participants will discover:

    • Must do's before the meeting or event begins.
    • Nonverbal techniques and platforms leaders can use to increase engagements during the meeting or event.
    • The top three nonverbal techniques that increase trust, and the top three that damage trust during virtual events and meetings - and they aren't what you think.

  • UNDERCOVER LEADERSHIP: Trust Starts With You

    Your credibility, likability, and trustworthiness are evaluated within seconds. That means that even if you have rehearsed your words perfectly, and you say all the right things, if your body language is not in alignment with your words; you lose.

    This presentation will give leaders:

    • Strategies that inspire courage from within, increasing trust in B2B and B2C relationships.
    • Nonverbal techniques that communicate confidence within seconds, especially in challenging situations.
    • Increase self-awareness to manage and access personal biases that may be holding you and your team back.

  • CRACK THE CODE ON TRUST: Insider Techniques for Leaders

    Studies show that the higher the level of trust, the more successful the outcome will be. Nonverbal communication is a significant data source used to make decisions around trust.

    Using insider techniques, Pamela will help you and your organization Crack the Code on Trust by learning to:

    • Accurately assess others nonverbal cues (body language). Discover and learn strategies used to build trust quickly and easily with anyone; including demanding clients, difficult customers, and challenging stakeholders.
    • Behave in a way that communicates confidence and trustworthiness in every situation. Develop nonverbal communication techniques that make people feel validated and appreciated.
    • Create an environment that fosters authenticity and trust - turning first impressions into winning impressions.
