Research and Communication: The Investigative Process

Thanks to an anonymous donor, all attendees will be entered into a drawing to win $100!

Objectivity is the goal of most communication, but it’s often difficult to separate drama from facts. A helpful tool in maintaining the objectivity standard is the investigative process, which is where speaker Leah Wietholter excels.

The investigative process isn’t reserved for just investigators and accountants, though. It can be used in any profession where you need to understand facts; decide what’s true and what’s not; and translate the story for an audience.

What You’ll Learn:

  • The investigative process and where information intersects.
  • The best evidence to rely on for analysis.
  • When to use the investigate process through case studies on actual events.

When: 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 19

Where: Tulsa Country Club, 701 N. Union Ave., Tulsa, OK 74127
