“Matt's delivery was brilliant. The course went through at the right pace for all participants with Matt happy to take a break and answer individual questions.

There's a lot of content to get through but Andy Snow gives context to the topics he teaches, making it easier to understand and take in. The course materials are great and Andy lets you ask as many questions as you need, never making you feel stupid for asking.

This was an excellent course - Andy made a potentially complex topic easy to understand and I learned a great deal about how to apply GDPR to my work.

Absolutely amazing course. Very intense but so worth it. Andy Snow's training style makes a very tough course so easy to follow and understand. Will be definitely be coming back for more training in the future.

Four days is a very short time to learn a lot of in-depth information but everything was well organised, the material was condensed, informative and easy to digest with open discussion and questions being answered directly. Andrew Snow, our trainer, has vast expertise in this subject and I feel he teaches his students how to actually take this knowledge away and utilize it - not just pass the exam on it.
