Glenn Foster D. Glenn Foster, the father of The Kinesic Interview Technique, is recognized as the leading exponent, practitioner and teacher of the renowned interview and interrogation system. A born teacher, Glenn put his B.Sc. from Auburn University and his M. Ed. to good use teaching high school in Georgia until the financial demands of a young family found him turning to police work. Serving first with the Atlanta Police Department and then as a polygraph examiner, Glenn launched himself into his life-long study of the deceptive behaviors of humans in stress. Teaming up with Frederick. C. Link, they originated The Kinesic Interview Technique. The publication in 1980 of their book of the same name established the early fundamental Kinesic principles. Glenn continued to develop The Kinesic Technique while working as a consulting investigator/interviewer for law enforcement agencies and private organizations. As his reputation for effortlessly extracting information that solved cases spread, so did the demand for him to pass on his interview and interrogation techniques to legal and law enforcement officers.

Glenn continues to pass on his skills and the Technique in a way that students never forget - and keeps them coming back for more.
