What Our Customers Say

Liz’s knowledge on data protection was impeccable, this gave me a real confidence when learning as data protection can be a difficult subject.  Liz’s knowledge and confidence with the legislation was a definite selling point and I would have no hesitation in recommending this training or Liz as a consultant to anyone that I hear who would be interested.

Debbie McClung

January 2020

The full course was five days and there was a lot to cover, I do feel the five days were needed to cover all the syllabus.  I thoroughly enjoyed it and Liz could not have be more helpful and supportive.  You think you know everything you need for GDPR compliance and then you go on this course and realise there is so much more.  It has helped me enormously going forward.
