Jen Hoar speaks about her role in helping businesses with their due diligence obligations as a trained corporate intelligence professional.

Our US content editor Julie DiMauro spoke to Jen Hoar, founder and managing member of Sinclair Insight, who provides intelligence and insight for her corporate clients. We talked about:

  • how corporate investigators and intelligence experts work with compliance departments;
  • what role due diligence plays in a transaction or business relationship;
  • what happens when the intelligence gathered is not what a corporate client wants to hear;
  • the investigator’s role in risk management;
  • how a journalist’s approach aided her ability to speak with those entrusting her with their experiences and thoughts; and
  • why listening is a critical skill.
