Dave Kearns is an expert on combating employee dishonesty, conducting commercial investigations and covert methods of evidence gathering. He worked in the police service for 13 years, specialising in field intelligence prior to establishing his own business Expert Investigations Group. This longstanding, professional company has been finding resolutions to commercial and legal issues for almost 20 years.
Dave has a maverick approach and uses creative thinking and fresh ideas to address employee dishonesty. A topic neglected by companies and organisations, he educates his audience on the reality of financial, morale and reputational loss and their vulnerabilities in these respects. For Dave, no problem is insurmountable.
With his talks, Dave will provide a ‘wake up and smell the coffee’ epiphany which shows that the systems a business put in place will usually be ineffective and a management team who will be ill equipped with the knowledge to understand the opportunity for employees. He frequently delivers presentations to organisations, such as the fraud prevention service CIFAS, the Chartered Institute of Credit Management, the professional body for human resources CIPD and the Institute of Directors. He provides commentary on national and local radio, television and specialist publications. He’s also a technical adviser for the BBC and has conducted academic research in the field.
