What our clients said about the course

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.
