'A wink and a nod'
I am a CFEI'm a CFE
My advice for CFEs developing their skills: focus on interviewing and writing. Interviewing witnesses is a fundamental element of our work, and spending time honing the craft of asking questions is invaluable. Similarly, I don’t think you can overstate the importance of good writing. The overwhelming majority of our work culminates in some sort of written product, and a poorly written report simply undermines your own efficacy. — Mark Lee Greenblatt, CFE
