On October 21, 2019, Gerry McGeachy will be speaking at the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners' 2019 Fraud Conference Canada in Montreal on the topic of "The Connection Between Fairness and Effectiveness in Investigations". This speech is an expansion of a talk he gave recently to the Toronto Chapter of the ACFE in June 2019. The premise will be that fairness ultimately supports credibility, reliability and the overall truth-seeking function. It is not something extra. It is a necessary ingredient in all investigations.
