Jason, Contract Consultant. Attended this course in November, 2018. I flew in from the States to take this course (all expenses paid out of my own pocket), and I was not disappointed. If you were to offer some additional masterclass-level courses (such as DSAR+Breach Management) in a contiguous, single-location, 4-5 day block, I could easily justify the cost and logistics of another international trip to attend.
