GDPR / FOI Courses

These are punchy courses delivered at your desk (or in your kitchen wearing pyjamas, I won’t know the difference) – full materials available, and everything you would expect from a 2040 course. Listen and learn, ask questions and get answers from a trainer with 22 years of information rights experience.

Please note – these courses are aimed at a UK audience and are most likely to refer to the UK ICO and UK cases.


Most courses are 2.5 – 3 hours and cost £150.00 + VAT. They run from either 9.30am or 10.00am.

Shorter courses are either 1 or 1.5 hours long and cost £100.00 + VAT or £125.00 + VAT respectively. Check the course you’re booking to be sure.

The AI and Audit courses are full day sessions and cost £350.00 + VAT and run from 10.00am to 4.00pm.

Please make sure that when you fill in the booking form, you provide the information you want to see on the invoice. I don’t need your home address!



Your booking is for one person, and you agree when you book that only one person will view the course. Discounts are available if you want more people to attend; contact for more information.

You can cancel your attendance up to one week before the course; after that, no refunds are available. You will get access to a recorded version of the course if you cannot attend on the day. Please do not book the course if you do not accept this requirement.
