Matt was an excellent instructor who was especially good at giving solid examples and memorable metaphors to aid in remembering a very information heavy course! The starts after the breaks were a bit abrupt so sometimes briefly missed out on part of a slide after the break but everything else was great!
9. on 14/11/2022, said:
5 stars out of 5
The course provided a comprehensive review of GDPR and associated regulations, all aspects were covered in the course, whys, hows, whens, and practical applications providing DPOs and prospective DPO the knowledge and tools they need to undertake their work. The course was taught by a knowledgeable leader who had worked as a DPO and a consultant for many years and had many practical examples to share. Furthermore, the course leader was a great communicator, happy to review course topics on request and had enough charisma to make risk analysis a setting up risk registers an interesting part of the course.

Opted for a classroom style course in Ely, best decision ever. Matt is so passionate about GDPR and managed to present it in a bite size chunks for easy understanding. He allowed plenty of time to ask questions which was so helpful. Because of his previous work he had a real life example for everything, another great addition to the course. I not only passed the exam but went away more confident in my understanding of GDPR. I was also very lucky to be a part of a great learning group, both in class and online. I have to agree with Philip regarding sandwiches and coffee machine!
