We are passionate about our areas of law, but know that they are complex and difficult to apply in practice by those who have limited experience.
We would welcome the opportunity to give you insight and share with you the practical tips we have developed from more than 30 years of collective experience.
We know that people learn best when they are entertained and one of our real strengths is making dry and difficult areas of law enjoyable and easy to understand.
bespoke training courses and workshops
bespoke training courses and workshopsOur bespoke training courses and workshops will be tailored to your industry sector and, if you would like, to your business. Your staff are welcome to join us at one of our venues or we are happy to come to your offices to minimise the downtime for you.
introductory awareness training
introductory awareness trainingOur introductory awareness training is ideal for introducing your staff to the basics of privacy, data and/or technology law. They will learn key terminology and understand how to apply the law in practice. If you choose our workshop – they will get hands on experience on bringing the law to life.
intermediate / advanced training
intermediate / advanced trainingOur intermediate / advanced training is for those who know the basics but need a deeper understanding of the finer detail to be able to apply the law in practice. We commonly run this training as a workshop so your staff have the chance to effectively apply what they have learned in a training environment before putting it into effect in your business.
departmental specific education
departmental specific educationMany training providers offer generic training, which does not always help those staff with specific business functions to apply the law. Take for example, call centre operatives or direct marketing departments – data protection law is the same in each case but the way it is applied and the significance of ancillary codes of practice and legislation differ significantly. Our training will allow your staff to gain knowledge and experience which is aimed at their specific discipline and which they can readily apply to their work.
senior management training
senior management trainingExperience tells us that people only take the law seriously if they work in a culture that encourages them to do so. This has to start at the top, but senior management generally don’t have time for the detail. This session is aimed at giving your senior people the headline information, a solid grasp of the risks – to them personally and also to the organisation – and concludes by agreeing a strategy with the management team which will be flowed down to the rest of the business.
contract & commercial awareness training
contract & commercial awareness trainingOne of our most popular training sessions is our contract and commercial awareness workshop. It usually lasts a full day and is particularly aimed at non-lawyers who have responsibility for ‘doing deals’. The workshop is highly interactive and by the end of the day your staff will know what pre-contract issues they need to consider and will understand how to read what is in a contract (and, perhaps more importantly, what is not in the contract). They will also be able to spot unacceptable terms and will get hands-on opportunity to draft clauses and to negotiate a contract. We also provide each attendee with our comprehensive reference handbook to remind them of what they have learned.
elearning course development
elearning course developmentWe work with a number of businesses to develop modules for their eLearning programmes. We also maintain a watching brief on all of the courses we have worked on so that our clients know when it is time to update the content or the assessment elements.
conference & event speaking
conference & event speakingWe are often invited to speak at public conferences and sector and client events. We aim to make them relevant and engaging by using examples specifically geared to the particular industry sector and we focus on audience participation to get the maximum benefit for those attending.
