Michael Reddington, CFI® is an executive resource and the Vice President of Executive Education for Wicklander-Zulawski & Associates, Inc. (WZ). His expertise as a Certified Forensic Interviewer and passion for new pursuits led him to establish WZ’s Executive Education Division which integrates interview and interrogation skills, strategies and techniques into business communication training and advisory services. These efforts culminated with the creation of unique sales, negotiation and leadership training programs born from interrogation and developed for business leaders. Michael has been invited to facilitate these training programs to executives across the United States, Canada, Europe, The United Kingdom, Africa and the Middle East.
Staying true to his roots Michael remains very involved in interview and interrogation training and consulting. After leading hundreds of programs, training thousands of participants and speaking at several national conferences he continues to enjoy the opportunity to train and learn from private sector investigators, human resource professionals, educators, law enforcement officers, and federal agents. His energetic presentations are enhanced by the interviews and interrogations he conducts on behalf of clients in both the private and public sectors.
Michael’s first passion has always been teaching. He started his professional journey as a special education teacher and baseball coach in New Hampshire. Prior to joining WZ Michael had a successful loss prevention career including investigative responsibilities across several districts in New Jersey and Connecticut for Sears and earning the title of Investigator of the Year twice while he was with Bloomingdales.
Michael goes well beyond facilitating and advising. He applies content specifically to needs of each client with a humorous and intelligent delivery style. His diligent preparation, attention to the concerns of each participant, and added context drive home the learning objectives. With Michael it’s never a presentation or advisory session, it’s always an experience.
