I found the course to be just the right pace and level of detail that was required in order to give me the confidence to take on and pass the test at the end. Instructor Matthew brought a nice mix of professionalism and personal experience and allowed us the time to debate certain themes as a class but he also moved us along at a pace that meant we covered all the topics adequately. Would recommend.

A really useful GDPR course, it was pretty intense however Anjelika was an excellent trainer, her subject knowledge and experience was vast and how she remembered all those facts and numbers was beyond me, extremely impressive. She went at a good speed and took time to ensure everyone understood the section before moving on, big thanks to her for all of her help.

A note to say thank you for your excellent GDPR course in September. I managed to pass both Foundation and Practitioner exams and I have put the knowledge to work for our firm. Not all trainers are created equal, I think your delivery was exceptional and aided learning perfectly

I wanted to express my gratitude for the way in which you managed the GDPR course last week. Whilst it was heavy going at times (not surprising given the volume of material to cover) you made the days enjoyable and informative. I am almost feeling confident talking through the implications for us back at the ranch. Attending the course was a good decision and makes me feel we are well placed to approach the work required to be ready for May 2018. Thanks again for your thorough and supportive approach.
