One-Day, 8 CPEs 
David Toddington, Founder & CEO, Toddington International

“Critical thinking is an objective analysis of a problem based on rational thought, self-awareness, honesty, open-mindedness, and an awareness of the frailty (and danger) of our own judgements.”

All too often, mission critical investigations fail because those involved jump to conclusions and draw faulty inferences that leave the trail cold. Correct conclusions are not the result of guessing, but by applying efficient thought processes. “Critical Thinking for Investigators” is an intensive one-day classroom-based workshop designed to help investigators and intelligence professionals, in both the private and public sector, avoid making incorrect assumptions by using logic, reasoning, critical thinking, and scientific methodology in their investigations.

Having been involved with criminal investigations for nearly 30 years and OSINT training within the law enforcement and corporate world for over two decades, David Toddington provides insight into “how to think about” the vast amount of data that can be uncovered during the course of an digital investigation along with an overview of some surprising lessons learned in his filming of four seasons of the "social experiment" that is the BAFTA nominated, hit UK television series “Hunted”.
