I am part of the Anti-Corruption Team for an international NGO. The Big Question Company delivered two days training for us in Oxford. Kate and Andy covered victim/witness and suspect interviewing. The training was a fantastic refresher in how to undertake interviewing. I found the training excellent. The mock interviews were interesting and there was a good mix of theory and practical exercises. There literally wasn't any activity I did not enjoy! I would highly recommend.
