Live workshops

The pandemic pushed nearly all training courses online, and while there be many advantages in terms of avoiding long journeys and crowded trains, it’s not quite the same as being in the same room, collaborating with other people and finding out their perspectives. This series of courses is designed to escape Powerpoint and work together with your fellow delegates.

WARNING: This is not a traditional classroom-style course where you are led by the hand and given all of the answers. Information rights law is not a series of binary right and wrong answers. If you join one of these sessions, you will get lots of information on the course subject matter, both from me and from your fellow delegates. However, the goal is to give participants the confidence to recognise that sometimes, there is more than one right answer, and sometimes, there are no easy choices.

On each course, you will discuss various challenges, and vote to decide how to proceed. There is no fixed path – I will guide you through the various stages and explain where your decisions have taken you. In every case, there is a successful outcome (e.g. a final SAR response, a completed DPIA) but it is up to you how you get there.

Each course is 2.5 – 3 hours long, and is £150 + VAT when run as an open access course, or £500 + VAT for an in-house session, including materials supplied in advance. You may need to do some advance reading to be up to speed on the subject matter of the course.

Please be aware that if you book using a Gmail or other generic email address, you will be required to pay within 48 hours of booking or your place will be cancelled.


Your booking is for one person, and you agree when you book that only one person per booked place will participate in or view the session.
