Professional facilitators carry out our training with well-developed group and classroom management skills in a non-critical environment, which encourages individuals to practice skills that are being taught. We do not sit individuals down and talk through a stack of PowerPoint slides; we engage them and discuss core ideas and concepts to bring their ideas and energy out, cementing the regulatory and commercial principles we are promoting in their mind. We do not focus on an unattainable set of KPIs, but rather achievable principles that can be readily utilised, adapted, and developed in an everyday working environment.

Discussion points and simulations, aligned with a structured training plan and real-life scenarios, allow individuals to develop the skills necessary for success. Handbooks will be used, but individuals are encouraged to make use of the sessions to take their own notes, practising the vital audio, visual and kinaesthetic skills which are vital in their role, learning how to process and store information which they will later be required to recall.


This course is specially designed for but not limited to:

  • Senior to Middle Management in IT, Data Protection, Compliance, Risk Management, Legal and Information security.
  • Cyber Security Consultants
  • DPOs, Risk Managers, Legal Counsel and Compliance Executives from following sectors: Manufacturing, Healthcare, Telecommunications, Government, F&B, Transport, Technology, Energy, Financial and Banking Services.
